Chad Ochocinco or Chad Johnson if you prefer his original name, is the high point of entertainment in the NFL. Like the Bengals or hate him, Ochocinco does his best to keep the fans on their toes.

Sunday morning on his UStream channel, CJ (as he used to go by) made an announcement that had fans talking once again. The star wide out is ready to change his last name once again. This time he wants to be known as "Hachi Go" which is Japanese for Eight Five. So in theory he is not changing his name, just changing the language... or something like that.

When pressed to give a reason on the name change, Ochocinco came back with the following response. "Some fans of mine that are Japanese said I should change my last name to 'Hachi Go."

It is not sure if Commissioner Goodell is aware of or even willing to allow the second name change of his career, but at least Hachi Go could look good on a Bengals jersey.
