Chad Ochocinco Tweets About “Awkward Moment When You Realize You Aren’t In Madden”
There was a time during this summer when everything seemed to be going great for Chad Johnson (formerly Chad Ochocinco). First he got married (and live Tweeted the whole thing). Then he appeared to be doing well in Miami Dolphins training camp, while developing a “Brokeback Mountain-type relationship” with his new teammates. But in a matter of just a few days, the roller-coaster that is eighty-five’s life took a turn for the worse, as he was arrested and charged with domestic battery after head-butting his wife during a heated argument. And almost 24-hours later, he was cut by the Dolphins — an emotional scene that many witnessed when it aired on HBO’s Hard Knocks.
