Name change

.On October 25, 2006, in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, when his last name was still Johnson, he announced that he would prefer to be called "Ocho Cinco", which is "eight five" in Spanish – "eighty five" is "ochenta y cinco", "eighty and five".[29] During warm-ups for the October 29, 2006 game against the Atlanta Falcons, the back of his jersey read "Ocho Cinco" instead of "C. Johnson". Quarterback Carson Palmer ripped the label off the jersey to reveal the usual "C. Johnson".[30] According to ESPN, Ochocinco was fined $5,000 for the stunt despite the fact that he did not wear the "Ocho Cinco" name tag during the game.^ If his new last name is any indication of his production on the field, Mr. Ochocinco would be better off changing his last name back to Johnson.
