Chad Ochocinco–crazy cocky, yet kinda lovable–properly hyped up an imminent Bengals victory in last night’s SNF matchup versus the Jets during a pre-game interview with Bob Costas. He also added a wager:
“If Revis shuts me down I will change my name back to Johnson,” Ochocinco told NBC’s Bob Costas on the network’s pre-game show. “That’s how confident I am. It’s not going to happen.”
The Cincinnati wide receiver then slipped during pre-game warmup and hurt his knee. He limped off the field, returned to play a silent first half, then ultimately left the game due to injury. Ochocinco watched from the sidelines as his team accepted defeat, 37-0.
What can be learned from this massive blunder? Don’t make a promise you can’t keep in a worst-case scenario (Absolutely don’t forget to account for natural disasters and bad traffic!). At least not on television.
