I'm sorry, Chad Ochocinco, but have you done lost your mind?

I know you're bored with the lockout and all, but I'm not sure picking a Twitter fight with our guy Ndamukong Suh is the smartest thing you've ever done.

I'm aware of no history between the Cincinnati Bengals receiver and the Detroit Lions defensive tackle, and I fully realize that Ochocinco loves him some attention. I don't know if this qualified as Twitter trash talk or a set-up for cheap entertainment. It's suspicious that Atlanta Falcons receiver Roddy White, at about the same time, randomly teed off via Twitter on San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith, but I have no idea if there is any kind of publicity-seeking coordinated effort here.

If nothing else, we have a fun way to close out the second full week of April.

Ochocinco started it off late Friday afternoon. I've pieced the series of exchanges together as best as I can. They ended with Suh and Ochocinco agreeing to a soccer-style shooout.
Ochocinco: @ndamukong_suh If we got into a fight at what point would you beg for mercy before i whooped your [expletive]?

Suh: HAHA NEVER, you don't want those problems!!!! RT @ochocinco If we got into a fight what point would you beg for mercy before i whooped ur..

Ochcocinco: @ndamukong_suh well we can get a hand held camera, fight, then put it on youtube of me beating you to a pulp

Suh: HA @ochocinco you couldn't beat me in soccer, let alone a fight.

Ochocinco: @ndamukong_suh Me and you on any ice rink and go at it Hockey fight style, everything goes until somebody hits the ground

Suh: @ochocinco bro I saw ur weak attempt at soccer..how bout we settle this w/ a shootout on the soccer field in #NYC @ #NFLDraft?#dontbescared

Ochocinco: @ndamukong_suh my attempt at soccer was awesome, we can have a shootout whenever you are ready, i will be the goalie also

Suh: That's a bet and I'll play goalie too!!! RT @ochocinco my attempt at soccer was awesome, we can have a shootout whenever you are ready...

For those who forgot, Suh played soccer growing up and is proficient enough to be the Lions' emergency field goal kicker.

I'll say this: Ochcocinco's got a better chance of beating Suh in a shootout than he does in a hockey-style fight. I'm afraid there would be only two sounds in the latter: One when Suh hit Ochcocinco, and one when Ochocinco hits the ground.
