Is the Ochocinco namesake history?
Just a few months ago, Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco stated that he'd change his name back to Johnson. In an interview with Buck and Kincade on WCNN in Atlanta, Ochocinco said he won't abandon his adopted name any time soon.

"Why would I mess up the brand?" Ochocinco said. "I can't mess up the brand. I have so much going on..." (NBC Sports)

Milton Bradlely accused of spousal abuse

This certainly hasn't been the smoothest past couple of years for former Chicago Cub Milton Bradley. His wife Monique is currently seeking a divorce from the Seattle Mariners slugger. According to court documents obtained by RadarOnilne.com, Monique requested a restraining order against Milton on January 24th while they were in New York City for New Years Eve.

The court documents state that Milton threw a glass at Monique's head and when her head began to bleed, he started crying and begging her to forgive him.

Monique is requesting that she be given legal and physical custody of the boys, and that Milton be given visitation. (RadarOnline.com)

Blackhawks headed to the White House

Charlie Tilson plays in Detroit for first time since getting injured in his MLB debut

Charlie Tilson plays in Detroit for first time since getting injured in his MLB debut

For over two years, Charlie Tilson was starting to look like his own version of "Moonlight" Graham, the player made famous in the movie "Field of Dreams" because he played in one major league game and never got to bat.

The White Sox traded for Tilson just before the trade deadline passed in 2016. Two days later he made his big league debut with the White Sox in Detroit. He got a single in his first at-bat, but left the game with an injury and missed the rest of the season. Tilson also missed all of the 2017 season and his MLB future was starting to come into question.

Back healthy, Tilson started this season in Triple-A Charlotte and hit .248 in 39 games when he got called up to replace Leury Garcia, who was placed on the disabled list. On Thursday, Tilson returned to a big league field for the first time in more than 20 months. He went 0-for-3 in a loss to Baltimore.

Friday marked a return to the site of Tilson's big league debut and the injury that made it such a brief stint. Tilson has now played three big league games, over the course of nearly 21 months, and two of them have been in Detroit.

Tilson went 1-for-4, meaning both his hits are in Comerica Park. The White Sox lost 5-4 after giving up three runs in the bottom of the eighth.
