Cleaning out the tape recorder with more goodies from Patriots WR Chad Ochocinco

There were a few items left on the cutting room floor from my lengthy interview with Chad Ochocinco Friday, that appeared in yesterday’s paper.

Chad Ochocinco gets by with a little help from his friends. Anyone hear of Randy Moss and Terrell Owens?

Couldn’t help but be captivated by Chad Ochocinco during our chat yesterday.  Since he hasn’t spoken much this year, it’s easy to forget just how engaging he is.
