Breaking News: Chad Johnson’s Wife Files for Divorce

Oh, how the once-mighty have fallen.

Only a week ago, Chad Johnson’s life was looking up. He had just been married a month and after having been cut from the New England Patriots, he was still living his dream with the Miami Dolphins.

Less than a week later, his life is falling apart all around him and he’s got nobody to blame but himself.

Now, he’s facing charges of Domestic Violence from his now-estranged spouse. Today, Evelyn Lozada filed for divorce. Ironically, she’s also in the entertainment business as the star of a reality TV show called “Basketball Wives.”

Perhaps Chad has a career playing semi-pro basketball now? Somehow, I doubt it. After the week he’s had, he’ll be lucky for any NFL team to take a chance on him even once injuries begin piling up in the regular season. Chad Johnson AKA Chad Ochocinco AKA Chad Johnson again has a long reputation as a “diva” wide receiver and a team distraction, but has never been arrested in his 11-year career – until Saturday.

One brainless, adolescent, and angry move took everything down. In the half-second it took him to head-butt his wife, he threw it all away. His career, his marriage, and what remained of his reputation – gone.

In another bit of irony, last Tuesday’s HBO season debut of “Hard Knocks” had one scene that is now of particular interest that I also mentioned last Thursday when I posted a review of the premier.

It was when the Miami Dolphins’ players had a “players day off” and as he was leaving, Johnson said “Hey Stu…Stu…I promise to get arrested while we’re off.”

Talk about a scene the editor was glad he left in…it was downright prophetic.

This should be a reminder to us all that no matter how angry you might get, think before you act.

It doesn’t take long at all to destroy everything that it takes such a long time to build.
