Ochocinco’s arrival tough to ignore

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — There’s arriving in style, and then there’s arriving in Chad Ochocinco style. Not surprisingly, two different things.

By now, you’ve heard about the massive Freightliner black truck Ochocinco gave himself for his 32nd birthday earlier this month. The behemoth made his arrival at Tuesday night’s Pro Bowl meeting difficult to miss, and worthy of a blog post.

If there’s an award for sickest ride at the Pro Bowl, Ochocinco wins it. Broncos WR Brandon Marshall — who pulled up alongside Ochocinco in his car and greeted him with a jump bump (is there an official term for this yet?) — agreed when we went back out to take a second look.

After putting admittedly too much thought into Ochocinco’s truck, the situation leaves more questions than answers. How did the super truck get to Fort Lauderdale, exactly? Did Ochocinco drive it from Cincinnati, or elsewhere? Was it waiting here? Assuming it’s street legal in most states, is there a different grade license required to drive it?

Clearly, lots of questions, and the answers will have to wait until I get a chance to ask Ochocinco tomorrow.
