Former Bengals teammates Chad Johnson (left) and Terrell Owens reunited Saturday when Owens visited Johnson in a Florida jail. (AP)
♦ Former Patriots receiver Chad Johnson, who has a hearing scheduled for Monday with Judge Kathleen McHugh to reconsider his 30-day jail sentence for a probation violation, had a jailhouse visitor Saturday: onetime Bengals teammate Terrell Owens.
Owens, no stranger to controversy himself, tweeted about his visit, writing: Just visited the homie @ochocinco. He’s in good spirits, he needs a haircut already tho. Lol. He sends his best regards to everyone.
Added Owens: I really didn’t know what to expect but to see the homie locked up is a very humbling experience, to talk to him via vid conference let me know that’s not where anyone wants to be. I know he’s only in the county jail but to someone that has never been locked up…Jail is Jail!
Johnson was supposed to avoid jail time, but his lack of seriousness during a court appearance last week — specifically a pat on the rear end of his attorney — led McHugh to admonish him, reject his plea bargain and sentence him to 30 days behind bars. Attorney Adam Swickle is pushing for Johnson’s sentence to be reconsidered.
♦ The Athletics and Mariners were forced to evacuate their locker rooms at Oakland’s O.co Coliseum after raw sewage rose up from the shower drains following Sunday’s game. The teams went to an upper-level locker room used by the Raiders to share the showers there.
The A’s lease at O.co Coliseum expires at the end of the season. The stadium, which was built in 1966, has been the team’s home since the franchise moved to Oakland in 1968. There have been problems before, but not to this extent.
“It’s clear, right?,” team president Michael Crowley said when asked about the need for a new stadium. “This isn’t the first time this has happened.”
♦ Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel continues to make headlines for the wrong reasons. The Texas A&M quarterback expressed his frustration with an unidentified situation when he tweeted early Sunday morning: [Expletive] like tonight is a reason why I can’t wait to leave college station…whenever it may be
After deleting the tweet, Manziel sent another that read: Don’t ever forget that I love A&M with all of my heart, but please please walk a day in my shoes
