Letter to a Loudmouth

Dear Chad Johnson (not ochocinco, Wide Receiver for the Patriots),

I refuse to use ochocinco even if you did legally change your name. What happens when you're career is done and you fade into football obscurity? You'll be somewhere and they'll say "last name please" you'll say "ochocinco" and they're gonna look at you and they're gonna say "we asked for your last name sir not your age." This is what will happen should you screw up in New England.

I have never been a particular fan of yours. Your loud mouth has always put me off. I don't like the show boating (even if you are that good and no one is ever that good). You don't see Tom Brady or Peyton Manning show boating after they throw their 3rd touchdown pass do you? You must be decent if Bill Belichick is willing to take you and lose a draft pick.

I have decided to give you a chance. I'm going to keep an open mind about you. Now don't go thinking we're best friends or anything, but I'm willing not to bad mouth you to every single person I meet. So good luck and don't screw up.


A Skeptical Almost Maybe Fan


  1. Hi Erica!
    Love the a "skeptical almost maybe fan" part! :)
    I just wanted to let you know about a blog I read called : www.confessionsofamaineteenager.blogspot.com.
    Every once in a while she has "Under 30 blog interviews" with various bloggers. They are for any blog that has under 30 followers. She writes these as a way to promote new and upcoming bloggers. I think you are a very talented writer and that this would be a great way to let others discover your blog!

  2. Thank you so much Gabrielle! I'm going to send her an e-mail. I love writing these letters, I get to say stuff to famous people I wouldn't otherwise get to say :)
