Ochocinco to attempt bull riding
Chad Ochocinco has accepted from Professional Bull Riders to ride a bull
He'll get $10K if he rides a bull and wil get a truck if he stays on for eight seconds
DULUTH, Ga. (AP) -- Chad Ochocinco now is going to try bull riding.
The Cincinnati Bengals receiver who earlier this year had a tryout with Sporting Kansas City of Major League Soccer, has accepted a challenge from Professional Bull Riders chief operating officer Sean Gleason to ride a bull at the LucasOil Invitational this weekend in Duluth.
Ochocinco will earn $10,000 if he rides a bull. If he can stay aboard for the required eight seconds, the PBR will give Ochocinco a new Ford F-150, as well as allow him to rename the bull.
Gleason says Ochocinco is "a gifted athlete, but bull riding is a much different sport and climbing on the back of a bull in the chutes takes a little more than Twitter confidence, let alone calling for the gate (to open)."
