Ochocinco to Change Last Name to “Hachi Go”

During his show, which airs on USTREAM, the Bengals wide receiver stated that he will legally change his last name to “Hachi Go” next season.
“Hachi Go” is Japanese for 8-5.
“I’m not sure how Mr. Goodell is going to take it,” he said jokingly during his broadcast.
But why “Hachi Go”?
A Japanese film crew was in town a couple weeks ago to do a piece on the Bengals for a NFL show over there. They said all NFL fans in Japan know who Chad Ochocinco is and they seriously made a proposal to Chad to change his last name to “Hachi Go”.
“Some fans of mine that are Japanese said I should change my last name to ‘Hachi Go’.”
Ochocinco was previously known as Chad Johnson, but goes by “Esteban” on his Twitter account.
You have to admire a man who has such a flair for all things international.
