Ochocinco's living a childhood dream

The NFL's players' union lockout will give American football star Chad Ochocinco the chance to try his hand at another type of football.

Cincinnati Bengals' wide-receivers will have a trial with Major League Soccer's Sporting Kansas City next week in an attempt to become an unlikely football dual star.

"I am excited to be able to follow my childhood dream of playing for a Major League soccer team," he said.

Chad has tried to reinvent himself before. He changed his surname from Johnson to 'Ochocinco' to reflect the two numerals on his Bengals' jersey.
