Anyone who knows Chad Johnson knows that he is a huge video game guy. In fact, his former wife probably should have known their marriage wasn’t going to last from the moment Chad proposed to her while playing Call of Duty. Most video game guys who like sports play Madden, so obviously Chad is no exception. For the past 11 years, Johnson has had the pleasure of being able to play as himself while playing the game. Now, he no longer has that luxury.
With Madden ’13 having been released on Tuesday, Johnson was recently faced with a cold hard truth while gaming.
That awkward moment when you realize you’re not on Madden13 and have to create yourself…

Between getting cut by the Dolphins, losing sponsors, going through a divorce and having his VH1 show cancelled, Johnson likely has a lot more on his mind than not being in a video game. He probably should have thought about that before allegedly head-butting his wife, but that’s neither here nor there. To his credit, Chad also told his followers not to feel bad for him a couple hours after tweeting about Madden.
