Chad Ochocinco is looking for a place to stay after signing with the New England Patriots and says he’ll live with a fan for a couple of weeks.


“I’m going to do something different,’’Ochocinco said. “I’m actually going to stay with a fan, probably the first two or three weeks of the season. So that should be fun until I get myself acclimated, I learn my way around and actually just find a place.”

This isn’t as absurd as it sounds. He has had some issues getting around Boston, a city that not even a GPS can help.

Ochocinco hasn’t worked just how he’ll find the fan, but has two requirements: an Internet connection and an Xbox system.


“Have I ever lied to you before?’’ he asked. “I rode a bull. I’m crazy. Same thing.’’
