Moron of the Week Award #6

In addition to this week’s award, I just wanted to mention a few other things…
First, if you haven’t yet commented on the “A Life vs. 30 Days” post, make sure you do so today. I’m running a contest where anyone commenting on that post will be entered to win a $50 American Express Gift Card and a The Constant Complainer t-shirt. The winner will be announced tomorrow morning.
Thank you to everyone for the kind words and congratulations for reaching our first anniversary. Running this blog has been a lot of fun and I hope this is only the beginning.
Now for our award! Because of his sheer stupidity, rather than accepting nominations, I decided to award Chad Johnson (of the Cincinnati Bengals) the “Moron of the Week Award” for this week.
Johnson legally changed his name to “Ocho Cinco” last year. His jersey number is 85. He wanted the Spanish text placed on the back of his jersey, instead of his last name. But he screwed up. First, 85 in Spanish is not “Ocho Cinco” – it is “Ochenta y Cinco.” Second, his formal name change application appears as “Ochocinco” so that’s how it will now appear on his jersey… You can view the Sports Illustrated story here.
Speaking of the “Moron of the Week Award” – feel free to comment below and nominate people or stories for next week…
