So Bengals wideout Chad Johnson has legally changed his name to "Chad Javon Ocho Cinco." Which I guess is only slightly better than "Chad Javon GoldenPalace.com." Chad expects to play in the Bengals' season opener, despite suffering a dislocated shoulder in the preseason and creating more needlework for his equipment manager.
"It's something I don't think anyone has ever done before," he told the team's Web site. "Have I ever had a reason for why I do what I do? I'm having fun."
Actually, Texans Domanick Davis changed his name to Williams in 2006, but he wasn't nearly as batshit as Chad is. Nor was he trying to piss off Marvin Lewis at every turn. I don't see what this has to do with Dade County. Maybe Ray Lewis can explain it for us. Bengals Wide Receiver Changes Last Name To Ocho Cinco [ESPN.com]
