T.O. and Ochocinco: Match Made in Hell
Sid Vicious and Johnny Rotten come to mind. Ren and Stimpy, too. Otherwise, I can't think of a more nonsensical and dangerous convergence of megalomania than the pairing of Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco. Someone must have spiked the chili in Cincinnati with stupid juice, because suddenly, the concept of winning games and playing with dignity is about to be lost in the blur of these mad men trying to one-up each other.
It will be comical enough watching them demand the football, leaving one to pout when the other guy is getting more touches or the other to mope when he isn't catching the winning touchdown pass. But if we've learned anything through the years from these hopeless attention hogs, it's that they're entertainers first who inevitably will vie to have the most Twitter followers, pull off the more discussed end-zone stunts and, frighteningly enough, attract the higher ratings in their back-to-back reality shows on VH1.
Right now, it's shocking anyone is tuning in. One is the star of a dating show called "Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch,'' in which he is known to run off lady contestants who aren't up to his standards. Immediately afterward comes "The T.O. Show,'' where the star last was seen walking bare-chested down a runway with a wig and an enormous necklace. Ochocinco appeared recently on "Dancing With The Stars.'' Owens once appeared in a racy pregame skit in which Nicollette Sheridan, of "Desperate Housewives,'' tried to convince him in the locker room to skip a game by dropping her towel and leaving her naked, prompting T.O. to take her in his arms and say, "Aw, hell, the team's going to have to win without me.''
