Yesterday, Chad Ochocinco started tweeting about people meeting him at a restaurant in Indianapolis, claiming that he would buy the first 64 people there dinner. He followed up on that ... by buying 64 fans in Indy dinner.
The dinner at St. Elmo's Steakhouse , was also funded for the Bengals. Regardless, it was popular.
Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio spoke to Todd Wright of Sporting News Radio (who has a "source" at St. Elmo's apparently) and he relayed the news that Ocho "was very cordial and took great care of employees."
This isn't going to be a one time event though: Ochocinco announced on his Twitter feed that he planned on meeting up with fans in every city that the Bengals traveled to, "especially" New York and Atlanta.
Needless to say, this whole slew of public goodwill events are going to be immensely more popular than Chad's touchdown celebration idea for Week 1, which he announced on, duh, Twitter: "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."
Don't get me wrong -- that would be pretty awesome too, just not likely to be as popular with the league.
