FOXBORO (CBS) – Chad Ochocinco has found a home in New England, even calling it “heaven.” Now he just needs to find a place to stay.
Does anyone have a spare bedroom for the Patriots newest receiver?
“I’m going to do something different; I’m actually going to stay with a fan, probably the first two or three weeks of the season,” said Ochocinco after practice on Tuesday. “So that should be fun until I get myself acclimated, I learn my way around and actually just find a place.”
While he said he was not sure how many Boston fans he has, there are a couple guidelines to who Ocho will move in with.
“I’m not sure how it’s going to work. They have to have internet and they have to have Xbox and that’s about it,” he said.
Once he gets accustomed to the area, Ocho said he would move on to his own place. But with Boston area traffic a little different from Cincinnati, it may take awhile.
“I haven’t used a GPS purposely – the way I learn a new city is by traveling out, adventuring out [and] getting lost on purpose,” he said. “This past weekend, I was a little frustrated because I was lost for about an hour, an hour and thirty minutes, and I couldn’t get where I needed to. And that’s it; Boston, or actually Heaven, has been good.”
“People have been fun,” he said. “A lot of people are not too fond of the Prius that I drive, which I find hard to believe. I’m not sure what that’s all about. Other than that, the people have been great. I got to meet a couple of fans at the Red Sox game, I wasn’t able to please everybody because I would have to talk to the entire stadium, but it was cool.”
