Chad Ochocinco tweeted about his lack of catches against the Dolphins on Monday and ripped his quarterback about his metrosexual inclinations… Wait! What? He didn’t tweet any of that? He actually praised his quaterback and his team’s performance? That can’t be because Tedy Bruschi nearly blew a gasket about Ochocinco’s tweet. So, what exactly did he tweet?
Just waking up after a late arrival,I’ve never seen a machine operate like that n person,to see video game numbers put up n person was WOW!
Oh-My-God! The nerve of Ochocinco! How dare he be so supportive. He’s actually promoting his team instead of himself. What happened to the old Ochocinco that obsessed about his name and creating the next quotable phrase that would make him a pop culture icon?
How did Bruschi respond?
Drop the awe factor, OK, Ocho, Chad, drop the awe factor,” Bruschi began. “You’re not a fan, all right. You’re not someone who’s on another team or watching TV. You’re not an analyst. You’re a part of it. They want you to be a part of it. So get with the program because obviously you’re not getting it and you’re tweeting because you’re saying, ‘It’s amazing to see’? It’s amazing to see because you don’t understand it! You still don’t understand it and it’s amazing to you because you can’t get it.
“Stop tweeting and get in your playbook,” Bruschi went on. “Wake up! If you’re just waking up now — I don’t know when this was, six minutes ago? — get out your bed and get to the stadium and watch some film if you still think it’s amazing. If you’re in it and you know what you’re doing and you execute out there you don’t think it’s amazing. You know why? Because it’s what you’re supposed to do.
Finally, someone with the courage to bash a player for showing love for another teammate! Way to go, Bruschi! You clearly have set aside the most pressing issues in the NFL to take the time to bash a guy for… well, for being supportive of his team.
Seriously? Tedy, you could pound me into a fine dust, but I feel compelled to give you two pieces of advice that may anger you to the point of a battering rage.
1. Shut up! Chad Ochocinco was doing nothing more than giving props to his team and teammate, Tom Brady. In the history of team sports, that has never been perceived as bad. Not once! I gotta think somebody pissed in your Corn Flakes just before you made your statement.
2. Have some human decency and add another ‘d’ to you first name.
If you choose to follow only one of the two pieces of advice, I would suggest going with number one. I can live with the Tedy thing.
