LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Chad Johnson battled Skip Bayless on FirstTake today, and threw in a couple “Child Please!”. An hour ago, Bayless announced to news the entrance of Johnson into the First Take studio. Bayless said “Chad Johnson is in the building. He’ll sit across from Stephen A and me at 10am E, ESPN2. We will ask @Ochocinco about EVERYTHING.”
But earlier today, Chad told news that McDonalds is critical before taking on a morning with Skip Bayless. “Up early ironing my dress shirt hoping I pass a McDonalds once I head out this a.m.” He added “The right nourishment is essential 4 today’s success.”
Chad joked last night that ESPN allegedly flew him out late to be less awake for Bayless in the A.M.. “[I] shouldn’t have slept on the plane, struggling to go back to sleep, must’ve been a strategic move by ESPN to fly me out late purposely .”
In March of last year, Bayless drew criticism for his peculiarly remarks about Ochocinco’s desire to try out for the MLS. “This is one weird black guy. Chad’s out there”, Bayless said on FirstTake at the time.
Ochocinco threw several “child please” remarks during today’s interview by Stephen A Smith. Just last October, Smith was accused of saying another expression with the word “please”, a claim Smith denied. Smith rather told news that everyone misunderstood him. “I am a New Yorker. I speak very, very fast.”
