New England Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco had his Cadillac Escalade broken into Wednesday and noticed his credit cards, driver's license, and iPod were all missing but the thing that he was really worried about was his Starbucks card.
Ochocinco was headed to a workout at Gillette Stadium when he was informed he could not get access due to restrictions in the new collective bargaining agreement. Instead, he went to IHOP to get breakfast and— when he returned to his SUV— he found out someone had broken into it.
An angry and visibly upset Ochocinco went to Twitter and— in a two-minute video— let his followers know how mad he was about his losses— especially the Starbucks Gold card.
"I earned the gold card," Ochocinco said. "You know how many coffees I've had to drink and lemon loafs I've had to purchase to get that gold card? Like, I had $220 left on my Starbucks card. Not just any Starbucks card, but a gold Starbucks card." The crushed Ochocinco's day took a positive turn after one of his Twitter followers said her mother had found his wallet in Providence, R.I. and it still contained his credit cards and license. Sadly, the Starbucks gold card was missing. Still, there was a happy ending after the company tweeted that they would send him a replacement card.

With the New England Patriots simply loaded with offensive weapons and stocked at the wide receiver position, veteran receiver Chad Ochocinco likely has very little room for error in order to remain with New England in the 2012 season. As the Patriots open their first round of OTA’s, Ochocinco reportedly looks as confused in the Patriots offensive sets as he did last season.

Wide receiver was a big position of transition during the offseason for the Patriots. Bill Belichick spent much of his time bringing in many new -- and some old -- faces to add depth and more competition to the receving corps. But there are some guys left from last season's team that will be vying for spots on the roster as well. Chad Ochocinco is one of those players and he...
