We never thought we’d see the day that Chad’s attention whoring would cease…
If you have been wondering where Chad Ochocinco has been on twitter, fear not, Tedy Bruschi didn’t run him off the social network. There is an even more entertaining reason Ocho has been MIA.
Check this out.
Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco hasn’t tweeted since September 24. Lest you think this is normal, well, it’s not — Ocho used to fire out 40-plus tweets a day, and for him to go 12 days without any noise on Twitter whatsoever is disturbing.
As it turns out, Ocho isn’t being forced off Twitter, per se, he just lost a bet, which probably involves his not-so-stellar play this season.
“Ochocinco hasn’t tweeted because he lost a bet,” Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald tweeted on Wednesday. “Twitter ban/lost bet last three weeks. Won’t tell me the wager.”
We checked with “Rap Sheet” on Twitter, and Ocho won’t reveal who the bet is with either.
Or guess, because you care, goes something like this: there’s was a bet between either Bill Belichick or Tom Brady and Ocho relating to number of catches against the Bills.
This makes sense for a couple of reasons. The Bills and Patriots played on September 25, one day after Ocho’s last tweet. And Ocho had the most number of targets (four) that he’s had all season, meaning you could jump to the conclusion, if you’re inclined, that someone was trying to give him a fair shake of getting his hands on some balls.
What do you think the bet was that is keeping Chad off of Twitter??
The ban ends this coming Monday. We’re sure ol’ Ochocinco will be back in full force.
