Ochocinco wants to crowd surf

In our quest to bring you the most complete news, especially on a ssslow Saturday, PFT looks at all corners of the internet.

So when Chad Ochocinco tweeted that he was UStreaming live with “Andre Johnson in the house,” we clicked on it.  (Surely this was the first UStream in history with opposing players the day before a game.)

Apparently the Andre Johnson appearance was a hoax or we were too late for it, but another “show” by Ochocinco earlier in the week caught our attention.

In it, Ochocinco details his plans for a touchdown celebration against the Texans Sunday.

He calls it the “Mexican jumping Bengal.” 

The plan: Ochocinco will head to the sidelines after his touchdown, jump in the crowd, go up a few rows, and then crowd surf until the the fans drop him off back on the sidelines around the 50-yard line.

Ochocinco seemed to come up with the idea while talking on talking on his show, then was so excited about it that he called everyone he knew.  Including the Palmer brothers.  And his coach Marvin Lewis.

Lewis didn’t answer, but it seems unlikely he’ll allow it if he catches wind of the plan.  And Ochocinco is hoping for a level of crowd cooperation that may be difficult to pull off, to put it mildly.

But if he does . . . we will salute him.

UPDATE: Friend of PFT Mike Dempsey from 1010 XL in Jacksonville informs us that Jaguars receiver Mike Sims-Walker did his “SkyWalker Show” on UStream with Chris Johnson of the Titans the night before the Jags-Titans game.  So history was not made by the Johnsons Saturday.  Glad to clear this important matter up.

  1. What’s not to like about Ocho? The guy just likes to clown around and have fun. I’m sure there’s some of you out there that will take issue anyways…

  2. Mike Sims-Walker had Chris Johnson UStreaming from his house the night before the Titans lost in Jax..

  3. This might turn out very bad if the crowd carries him up and over the bleachers into the parking lot instead.

  4. Not a Bengal fan but think Ocho brings a little humor to football. What’s wrong with a little showmaship if the guy can back it up with his play? His antics much more enjoyable than that pre-game seizure funk Ray Lewis puts me to sleep with.

  5. I’m not a Bengal fan, and don’t think a whole lot of Chad Johnsoncinco, but would love to see this go down. NFL has stood for the No Fun League too long.

    Nothing at all wrong with keeping things light and having a laugh while you work. But this guy is all about promoting himself, with his “Hey look at me” clown act. His “stunts” don’t help his team win one bit.
    He’s a perfect example of whats’ wrong with pro players these days. Now it seems players have to run 20 yards down field after making a play, just to dance and pose for their close ups. You never saw this nonsense 30-40 years ago, now it’s everywhere, on every play.
    Can you imagine this idiot in the same locker room with say, Dick Butkus, Deacon Jones, or Jack Lambert? How long would 85 have played for Lombardi, or Landry?

    Vince Lombardi was fag. My dad installed two way mirrors at his pad in Green Bay, and he came to the door wearin’ a dress.
