    Thought this was kind of funny and interesting. Good to see someone with contraversy surronding his name, giving back to the community.

    Cincinnati Bengals all-pro wide receiver Chad Johnson will race a horse at River Downs in Cincinnati, Ohio on Belmont Stakes Day, June 9, as a fund-raiser for Feed the Children, an Oklahoma City-based charity that provides food, medicine, clothing, and other necessities to children around the world. The race, billed as "man vs. beast," will be held on the turf course, with Johnson starting at the sixteenth pole and the horse, Restore the Roar, starting at the eighth pole.

    Patti Cooksey, the second all-time leading female rider in North America with 2,137 career wins, will come out of retirement to ride Restore the Roar, an Ohio-bred maiden. Restore the Roar is named after a local Bengals television program.

    As part of the fund-raiser, Johnson has donated sports memorabilia that will be sold at silent auction; River Downs will make a donation to Feed the Children; and Restore the Roar's owner, Patricia Glenn, will donate a portion of the horse's earnings this year to the Marvin Lewis Foundation, a fund run by the Bengals' head coach that aids youth organizations and nonprofit groups in the Cincinnati area.

    Chad Johnson, no matter how cocky and arrogant he might seem, is a pretty good
    guy. He helps charity, he trys to be funny, he helps people out, and he isnt a
    **** like some athletes.

    I think that is a cool thing for Chad to do and I can't wait to see it. This just fits his personality.......he just cracks me up. The man is funny and I enjoy listening to him talk just as much a Shannon Sharpe.

    They say it's a battle of man vs. beast.

    In reality, isn't it beast vs. horse?

    They are saying with the lead he gets it is an honest chance he will get!!! Can't wait to see the results, and as a fan...I just pray he doesn't pull anything!!!

    BTW...you all are with Carson on this...he said he will be cheering Chad on, but his money is on the horse!!!

    I remember somebody racing a horse many many years ago. It was like a freakin 20 year old horse though so it was pretty lame... Hopefully Chad races a good horse Then the race will actually be cool.

    Hmmm.... I wonder how fast the average 40 time is of a horse?
