    VH1 Stars T.O. And Ochocinco Set To Join Forces As Cincinnati Bengals Teammates

    61034290

    Did you hear the news? In a match made in VH1 heaven, Terrell Owens will be joining his friendly rival Chad Ochocinco as a wide receiver on the Cincinnati Bengals this season. The two have been duking it out for Sunday night supremacy as the stars of The T.O. Show and Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch for the last few weeks, but come Sundays this fall, the two longtime friends will both be sporting orange and black uniforms, standing on the same sideline and doing everything they can to take the Bengals to the Super Bowl.

    However, the T.O. era in Cincinnati got off to a bumpy start this morning. Reports out of Georgetown, KY — where the Bengals are holding their pre-season practices — say that T.O. missed his flight last night, resulting in him not being able to attend this morning’s practice or his scheduled 11 a.m. press conference. Never fear, though, the press conference has been rescheduled for later tonight, at which point in time we’ll get to see T.O. don a Bengals jersey for the first time. Let’s just hope that T.O. makes his next flight!

    T.O. And Ochocinco Hoop It Up In Rucker Park

    Well, sort of. You see, we caught up with Terrell Owens, star of The T.O. Show, and Chad Ochocinco, star of Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch, in Harlem’s legendary Rucker Park the other night for a spirited game of basketball. Well, sort of; Chad didn’t actually end up playing. Instead, he coached his team from the sidelines. Still, that didn’t stop T.O. and Chad from wagering a small bet on the outcome. Specifically, the losing side would have to do 85 (get it?) push-ups at center court? Find out who won by watching the video above!

In it, Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocino (whom you may recognize from Dancing With the Stars) attempt to one-up each other on their reality show qualifications. Two sports heroes living the American dream, at long last.
