So news just came out that Chad Ochocinco is joining Sporting KC for a trial period next week. Odds are that this is another publicity stunt from Mr. Eightfive. With the NFL lockout nearly inevitable at this point, he has to find new ways to draw attention to himself. He'll pose for some pictures at the practices, and then move on to the next attention-whoring activity.
But what if it doesn't play out like that? What if it turns out he can really play, and makes it onto the pitch in an MLS game? Let's say he even scores a couple goals. Would having Ochocinco on the field reduce the league to a sideshow, or would it fuel more interest in U.S. soccer?
One thing's for sure... He'd come up with some entertaining goal celebrations.
