Chad Ochocinco, NFL wide receiver of the Cincinnati Bengals backed up his promise that he could ride a 1500 pound bull on the Professional Bull Riding circuit. He lasted 1.5 seconds and earned $10,000 for charity.   Chad Ochocinco is enjoying the NFL lockout, thats for sure.  He tried out for Major League Soccer, becoming an alternate and now riding a bull was his latest publicity stunt.

It started as a tweet, that he could prove to PBR president Sean Gleason that he could in fact ride a bull and was serious about doing it.   His twitter account has over 2 million followers so he had to follow through.

The ride lasted 1.5 seconds, 6 seconds short of a feat to win a Ford Truck and the right to rename the bull after Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis.

Chad trained for two days leading up to the event Saturday night for the Lucas Oil Invitational and helped generate much needed publicity for the PBR.  He was the main attraction.

When asked if Chad would ever attempt to ride a bull again he said " One and done..  no way.. playing in the NFL is hard enough".

The $10,000 he won was donated to charity.
