Chad Ochocinco has been lonely with Evelyn Lozada out of town for the last couple of weeks. So cruising around Miami on Valentine’s Day was especially somber.
He tweeted the following.
When one of his 3.2 million followers @choppacitymayne decided to throw something out there.
A few tweets are exchanged and all of a sudden Chad Ochocinco is at this guys house, sending out a twitpic.
Say what you will about Chad needing to be the center of attention, but the guy takes care of his fans. Last month a fan tweeted him about ignoring him for 2 years, so Chad invited him to the AFC Championship Game. He also famously got a ride from a fan in a Honda Civic a little while later.
I think its fantastic that Ochocinco has taken his interactivity with fans to this level. There really is no risk in him just showing up at a guys house. The chances that the dude is a psycho are minimal, he was in and out of the guys house in a few minutes so no time for the media to assemble and make it a spectacle and not enough time for everybody the guy knows to show up at his house unless they were really close by.
What he did was do a really cool thing for a fan, who will have a memorable story to tell his friends.
He announced last week that he would take a fan to the Heat vs Knicks game next Thursday in Miami and sit with them courtside. As it turns out, that lucky fan will get to witness LeBronsanity vs Linsanity.
I do live in Miami.
