Three Ochos for Chad

Posted by hobsonschoice1 on April 26, 2010 – 9:19 pm



Chad Ochocinco’s trip back to Cincinnati last week must have revived his dancing because he came up with his highest score of the competition with three 8s Monday night on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars doing the Argentine Tango.

Then he came back and got seven extra points when they finished fourth in the swing dance marathon. He ended up with some good lifts and leaped over partner Cheryl Burke’s head a few times. 

Call it eight catches for 143 yards.

The Ocho and Burke came to Paul Brown Stadium last Friday to shoot a segment for Tuesday’s 8 p.m. results show as well as take in the Bengals draft party  Thursday night while also getting in some rehearsals at a downtown studio. Bengals strength coach Chip Morton said Burke tried a few stations in the weight room and while she told The Ocho she’s “no athlete, I’m a dancer,” Morton said she was “a good sport.” Morton got a particular charge out of her request to put The Ocho’s head on the spot where she was bringing down a sledge-hammer coontraption.

Word is Burke and The Ocho took a football out to the field after she checked out his locker and tried on a couple of helmets. They also apparenlty signed a couple of footballs for a Marvin Lewis Community Fund auction.

    Not a big fan of that show, but am really proud to have our guys portrayed in a good light opposed to the arrest-o-rama of a few years back. Good job men!

    Couldn’t agree more, carson9. Haven’t watched DWTS (and won’t watch Chad’s VH1 show either), but it’s nice to hear that he’s performing well and bringing some positive attention to the city and the franchise. It’s amazing the transformation in the off-field drama between Cincinnati and Pittsburgh over the last few years.
