Jonathan Papelbon is the bizarro Chad Johnson. Johnson, who wears number 85 for the Cincinnati Bengals, calls himself “Ocho Cinco.” Papelbon, who wears number 58 for the Red Sox, had “Cinco Ocho,” written on the red socks that he wears during games.I excused Johnson for mangling Spanish over the whole Ocho Cinco thing because he's a dumbass and probably doesn't know any better. Papelbon, however -- well, wait, if the stories I hear are true he's no mental giant himself. Hmmm.
Look, at the very least, Papelbon has Spanish speaking teammates, right? Would it kill him to write cincuenta y ocho?
