The first interview to cross the NFL news desk on Friday was Chad Ochocinco’s appearance on The Dan Patrick Show, and as you’d expect, he didn’t disappoint.
There was a lot of hoops talk (see LeBron James), but Ochocinco did make two bold predictions. When asked if he would get a Super Bowl ring or a wedding ring first (he was on with Patrick promoting his VH-1 dating show), Ochocinco said he’d get two rings this year.
“A Super Bowl ring. I believe that Super Bowl ring will be this year,” Ochocinco responded.
He then had a smooth segue into how he would get the second ring.
“I just talked to Pat Riley,” Ochocinco announced. “When I see the ends, I’ll be coming off the bench for the Heat. I can average 10 points per game. I might be the first player to get two rings in one year.”
Never bashful, but almost always entertaining, Ochocinco interrupted Patrick trying to end the interview with another take.
“I got one more thing,” Ochocinco said. “Shouldn’t the people of Ohio not feel that bad that LeBron is gone, when you have me to watch every Sunday?”
A strong finish. But that wasn’t all Ochocinco had to offer. You can check out the full interview on the show’s website.
