Chad “OchoCinco” Johnson kicks in extra point video

Last month, Cincinnati Bengals Wide Receiver Chad Ochocinco tweeted that he would kick from the end zone at some point during this year’s football season.

In last night’s game, Chad Johnson (OCHOCINCO), kicked in a field goal against the New England Patriots for an extra point because Bengals kicker Shayne Graham was injured.

OchoCinco, a huge fan for soccer not known for his football kicking skills, shows that he can put extra points in when necessary.

Kurt Rambis named Minnesota Timberwolves head coach

“Kurt, with his experience playing and coaching for a winning organization and working under people like Pat Riley, will bring a lot to our organization,” Taylor told the Pioneer Press. “In meeting with him and talking to him, I know he’s very excited about having an opportunity to help build his own team.”

Sources told ESPN.com that the Wolves are planning a Tuesday news conference to introduce Rambis as the replacement to Kevin McHale.

The 51-year-old Rambis has a lot of  head coaching experience of the group. He has been a Lakers assistant for 10 years, was their head coach in the lockout shortened 1998-99 season and has filled in on several occasions for his Hall of Fame coach.

Rambis won four titles with the Lakers as a player and three more as an assistant. He comes to a franchise that has seen many more losses than wins, especially of late.

The Wolves have not made the playoffs since Kevin Garnett led them to the Western Conference finals in 2004. They have won just 46 games in the last two seasons and have changed coaches four times in the last five years.

Kurt handled business in Los Angeles, so I wish him luck in Minnesota.

A family friend says Nichols, who called her family immediately when she learned Jefferson was bailing, was “not entirely caught off-guard,” by Jefferson’s sudden change of heart.

“She just wants to keep this as quiet as possible and move on. She’s doing just fine.”

He never showed up at the hotel where the guests were staying, but “all his boys were there,” the friend said. “He gave his best friend the Black Amex [credit card] for the night.” So, the winner in all of this turns out to be?? The best friend who received the Black Amex card. CHEERS!
