KANSAS CITY, Mo. | Switching from football to soccer won’t be easy for Chad Ochocinco, if it happens at all.

By the end of his first workout with Sporting Kansas City on Wednesday morning, the star wide receiver of the Cincinnati Bengals was panting hard and was obviously exhausted.

“Exactly what I expected,” said the six-time Pro Bowler. “I would be a little winded being that I haven’t ran at this pace or this level since the end of our season of football. It was fun. I didn’t expect to come in here and be Superman.”

Ochocinco plans to go through with the four-day tryout and, if possible, join the team.

Want swing help from Woods? There’s an app for that

ORLANDO, Fla. | Tiger Woods is now giving lessons on mobile phones.

Woods launched a mobile application Wednesday called “Tiger Woods: My Swing” for the iPhone and iPod touch geared toward helping golfers of all skill levels improve through video analysis and instruction.

The cost is $9.99, which is significantly higher than other such applications - Paul Azinger has an instruction app for 99 cents - but Woods said his share of the proceeds go toward the Tiger Woods Foundation.
