Really, sometimes there are things we just can't make up. We reported earlier today on Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco being fined $25,000 for Tweeting during a game last weekend.
Now comes word that our hero is getting.....wait for it....his own cereal. From the company that brought you Flutie Flakes...comes "Ochocinco's". That company, PLB Sports, has an intersting roster of athlete named foods.

Try and forgive the Ochocinco stories here, but its hard to resist this type of material. The product, which will be sold primarily in the Cincinnati area, will be available at Kroger's stores and the company's website. They debut, September 7th.
Really, if you think about it, it's kind of hard not to laugh about this stuff, but it sells. It isn't something you'll see nationwide, but it sells in its markets. We get the logic. In towns such as Cincinnati, pretty much anything with one of their players mugs on it...will sell.
We aren't saying we are going to buy some here in the Satellite Office, we aren't really Bengals fans, but their is some curiosity.
Say what you will, the guy can market himself. Here's his intro video from Dancing With The Stars...Thanks YouTube:
