Regardless of what you think about his play on the field, Ocho has been an excellent teammate all year and that is something many of his critics said were impossible.
He has never complained once, has been encouraging of all his teammates and not responded to any of the slander fair or unfair he has received.
Considering the success Ocho has had in the league, he could have complained about getting more touches or maybe some specific routes for himself, but he hasn’t been a distraction and has been rewarded with a trip to the Super Bowl.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Ochocinco bought 70 Beats By Dre headphones for each of his teammates to have during their flight to Indianapolis on Sunday for Super Bowl XLVI.
Beats By Dre, created by legendary hip-hop producer Dr. Dre, are considered to be among the best — and priciest — headphones on the market, with even the basic model running upwards of $100 a piece.
And I was right. Per the Boston Herald, Chad dropped roughly $28,000 on the “Beats Pro” model for his comrades.’
I have no rooting interest in the Giants or Patriots winning the game.
I do hope Ocho, who just recently lost his father, contributes in some way. Just saying you caught a pass in the Super Bowl is a big thing and I hope he gets that opportunity.
By the way, this is a much better gift than Tom Brady handing out a pair of UGGs to everyone.
