OchoCinco, from "bribery" to philanthropy


How do you turn a one dollar bill into $40,000 of charity? Just ask 85. Chad Ochocinco Tweets that he is now pledging to match the $20,000 fine, imposed on him today by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, in a charitable donation to Feed the Children. The Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver was punished for his actions surrounding a mock bribing of an official, with the now infamous bill, during last Sunday's win over the Baltimore Ravens. The NFL donates all fines to charity bringing the grand total to 40k -- who says a buck can't get you anything these days?
