If you have always wondered what it would be like to live with a professional athlete, now here’s your chance.
“I’m going to do something different — I’m actually going to stay with a fan, probably the first two or three weeks of the season,” Ochocinco said. “So that should be fun until I get myself acclimated, I learn my way around and actually just find a place.”
That’s right: Ochocinco plans on rooming with a fan for the first few weeks of the season. He’s just looking for two things in potential roommates:
“They have to have Internet, and they have to have Xbox, and that’s about it,” Ochocinco said.
