Ochocinco brings back the list

CINCINNATI -- For the big division game between the Bengals and Steelers this weekend, Cincinnati receiver Chad Ochocinco offered the first verbal salvo.

Ochocinco had an important message he wanted to pass along to the cornerbacks of the defending Super Bowl champions heading into Sunday's game at Paul Brown Stadium.

"This week I have Ike Taylor and William Gay, and I'm looking forward to making them kiss the baby," Ochocinco said confidently.

It is not the first time he has used that phrase this season. Prior to Week 1's matchup against the Denver Broncos, Ochocinco made a similar vow, saying he was hoping to make Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey "kiss the baby" -- slang for "It's all over."

Going retro, Ochocinco has brought back his infamous checklist, on which he marks off all of the cornerbacks who fail to stop him during the season. Sitting in his locker, the list is titled "Dulce Venganza," which he says is Spanish for "Sweet Revenge."

"Basically, everybody is going to have to [pay] for everything that happened last year," Ochocinco said. "It's going to be interesting. We all know how the list goes up to this point. There's no need to discuss who gets checked off. We all know everyone has been checked off so far. Ike Taylor and William Gay will be the next two to get checked off."

Ochocinco also said he has a Spanish-themed touchdown celebration for Sunday, but wouldn't elaborate. Last week, Ochocinco did what turned out to be an orchestrated Lambeau Leap after his touchdown catch in a 31-24 road win over the Green Bay Packers.

Whatever, his act is old, it's not even entertaining any longer.

The Steelers will give him a message all right (probably not in Spanish, though).

kiss the baby, I kind of laugh at him sometimes, he is a nut, I think his best days are behind him, but he does make me laugh, and I have a feeling the steeler Dbacks will laugh more than use this as bulletin board material..

Speaking of which, I just saw a commercial yesterday for a new sitcom coming on T.V. starring Michael Strahan. It is commonplace for retired football players to enter sports media (and in the rare case, other non-sports news stuff like Tiki Barber on the Today Show). But jumping right into a sitcom? That's odd. There have been a bunch of football players to go into acting (Alex Karras, Fred Dryer, Merlin Olsen, Dick Butkus, Bubba Smith, etc.) but typically it is not immediately after they retire from football. Especially since Strahan is far from a pretty boy. Maybe Letterman and Madonna pushed for this so people don't think their teeth gaps are so bad.

haha probably. and that show looks dumb as hell.
this reminds me, have you seen the new nutrisystem commercial with Lawrence Taylor? while i was watching, i couldn't help but wonder... did he lose the weight from nutrisystem or is he smoking crack again?

well I think that chad johnson is kind of funny, there are some arrogant players that i really dont like, i dont mind chad though, i think he sees it as a game, works hard and had fun with it. He never really has gotten in trouble off the field and that list that he makes up about kiss the baby is something that the steeler dbacks will laugh at rather than use as bulletin board material

When does this guy have the time to prepare, work out, watch film, etc... coming up with all the schtick that he does... in between being a father (& husband, if he is married).

I'm sure he is a great father to his kids. :roll:

I'm sure that he sends his kids a tweet at least 3 times a day. That's effective parenting. :wink:

Or you should say, that's effective parenting--in his mind. :wink:

Kind of funny. He has 9 catches for 180 yards and one TD in two games. Decent numbers, but not what I would call "kiss the baby" numbers.

While Chad doesn't worry me his partner, Chris Henry, does. Henry had had some big games against us so he is the one I think we need to stay on like flies on a piece of ****e.
