Chad Ochocinco Adds Another Notch in His Career Belt: Media Day Hack

Chad Ochocinco hasn't yet accecpted New Times' informal offer to write a 10,000-word odyssey/cover story about wearing Snuggies at McDonald's and living a double life as Esteban the Most Interesting Footballer in the World.

But we'll consider his effort this afternoon at Sun Life Stadium a trial run.

With a massive uniformed technical crew from OCNN -- the Ocho Cinco News Network -- in tow, number 85 moonlighted as a hard-hitting TV reporter. And damned if he didn't do a pretty creditable job, at least by the extremely loose standards of Super Bowl Media Day.

Ochocinco dodged bouncers, yelled questions with the hordes of other hacks, and got ignored by Peyton Manning for a solid 45 minutes straight. Welcome to the biz, Ochocinco!
