If you didn’t think former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson was crazy, then you might want to check out this story. Apparently, Johnson had a pretty odd way of dealing with minor injuries.
He joined the “Mike & Mike Show” Wednesday morning and he shared a pretty crazy story. Ochocinco claims that he used to soak his ankles in his teammates’ urine, which was, in his mind, the best way to heal a sprained ankle.
Here’s how Johnson’s “fool proof plan” worked:
1. Collect urine from teammates
2. Heat it up in the microwave
3. Soak ankles, instant healing powers
4. Use urine as a broth for soup
Okay, that last part isn’t true and pretty gross, but this whole situation is pretty disgusting anyway. Sure, you supposedly should rub urine on a jellyfish sting, but this is a little extreme.
However, Johnson rarely missed games due to injury, so maybe his strange method worked. We will let somebody else test his theory.
