Chad Ochocinco Just Can't Catch a Break

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco has a problem. His favorite pair of cleats are in the Bengals locker room and, because of the lockout, he can't get them or even make contact with the Bengals equipment manager. Not having these cleats, which are apparently made of solidified awesome and lined with clouds, has prevented Ochocinco from working out like he wants to.

Ochocinco is a man of action, though. He petitioned NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to end the lockout so he can get his cleats and get to work. He did so via... you know what?.... no, I'm not even going to tell you how he communicated his frustrations with Goodell. You should already know.

This is what the lockout has done to us. We've been reduced to writing about Ochocinco's shoes. Please, for the love of everything good and holy, end this so we have something real to talk about.
