Chad Ochocinco looking forward to first Super Bowl

It has taken 11 years, but Chad Ochocinco, or Johnson for you old-schoolers, is finally going to the big dance, as he calls it. The only question remaining is will he actually play when his New England Patriots meet the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLVI. Tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez and wide receiver Wes Welker were the primary ball catchers in the Patriots' offense this season. That trend continued during New England's two playoff wins. In his one and only pre-Super Bowl interview, Ochocinco opens up on how difficult his first season in New England was, whether he feels he deserves a Super Bowl ring and, of course, his passion for tweeting.

    He had to re-think his dancing
    Of *course* he deserves a ring if the Pats win the SB; he is on the team...he doesn't win any awards for his oversized ego, though...

      I'll agree with you there, leeintulsa.
      I'd rather see the Pats win.
