It must be a slow day in Ochocinco-land. The Ochocinco is already thinking about planning his regular-season touchdown celebrations, and in doing so found his way into NFL news headlines as well.
Well played, Chad.
Anticipating a possible touchdown in the regular-season opener against the Patriots at Gillette Stadium on Sept. 12, Ochocinco is planning a one-gun salute.
“If i am able to score week 1 in New England i will be taking the minute men rifle and firing as they do when the PATS score,” Ochocinco Tweeted on Tuesday.
As you’re probably well aware, one of the in-stadium rituals at Patriots home games is to have a group of Minutemen in the end zone, and they point their rifles skyward and fire off a salute when the team scores. I’m not sure how easy it will be to simply take a rifle from a Minuteman — Ochocinco might want to think about bribes or infiltrating the Minutemen with an insider.
