Chad: I will beat Shawne Merriman's head in

Back in June, Chad Ochocinco kicked off Tweet Wars against Shawne Merriman. And Chad is back in form (on Wednesday), throwing a salvo at Merriman.

“I will beat Shawne's head in, right now,” he said. “It's not even fun. This is not in fun. This is personal. Bring it on. It is what it is. I think he might be one of the only people I don't really get along with. I want to fight. I'm not sure how to get the fight on without him suing me.”

OK, this isn't the same Chad. His pissivity level is reaching six, a level in which only ancient puzzles, dark force sermons and Balrog fire whips could open the door to.

I don't know. You just have somebody that, like, you have the itch, you just want to fight? That's what it's come to. I just want to fight. I think back when we played last time,” he continued. “I can't remember. I don't know. You know what, I think I copied his dance after I scored, and I think it pissed him off.”

Merriman blew off Chad. When asked if he thinks that Chad is serious, Merriman said, "I haven’t been called out by too many guys. This is a different situation for me. I can tell you one thing. It’s not going to be a joke. And that’s when I see him Sunday."

Uh-oh. Now, this will be interesting. We know Chad. We know he's a jokester. This isn't the same thing. And we know Chad will take one for the team. Can you say, "personal foul, defense, number 56"... It should be noted that all of this probably has changed since Henry's passing Thursday. But if we know Chad, he'll use it. And Chad will dominate.
