NFL's Chad Ochocinco Plans to Wait Out the Lockout with Alligator Wrestling

June 28, 2011

The impending NFL lockout is going to leave a lot of people with a lot of spare time on their hands, not counting the fantasy football players who already have way too much time on their hands.

The Bengals' resident thrill seeker Chad Ochocinco isn't going to take his time off lying down, at least not without a live, thrashing alligator underneath him. No he's not looking to test the limits of Florida's animal indecency laws. He plans on wrestling them (again, in a non-indecent way).

The receiver announced his vacation plans in an interview at as part of his never-ending battle with Bengals owner Mike Brown to one-up his fellow thrill-seeker who still talks about his snake-wrangling days. It's quite an impressive announcement because even if he loses an arm trying to subdue a gator with his bare hands, he can have an equally impressive career as the NFL's first one-armed wide receiver.
