Patriots WR Chad Ochocinco Taking Fan to Broncos Game After Ignoring Him on Twitter For Two Years

+Read full article

The argument can be made that New England Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco is more active on Twitter than the actual football field considering the wideout caught just 15 passes for 276 yards and one touchdown all season. With the team’s upcoming game against Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos scheduled for Saturday night, it appears Ochocinco will be treating one special fan to the game–mainly because he ignored him on Twitter for the last two years.

According to a report from Yahoo! Sports, college student Victor Gonzalez complained to the former star wideout on Twitter that he’s been tweeting him for two years and he’s never received a response. Because of this, Ochocinco thought the best way to make it up to Victor was to invite him to Saturday’s game against the Broncos–which he obviously didn’t turn down.

It’s safe to say there are plenty of celebrities that will never respond to some of their followers considering how many daily messages they receive, but this is a pretty cool gesture on Ochocinco’s end. His numbers may not have been the best during the regular season, but this is just one of the many reasons why Ochocinco is one of the best athletes to interact with because of how much he loves his fans.
