The NFL just recently fined Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver and marketing specialist Chad Ochocinco $30,000 for wearing a sombrero after scoring a touchdown in their week 13 win over the Detroit Lions. Ochocinco, a man who’s already been in trouble for his previously hilarious antics, was sent the following statement from league officials:
“During the second quarter of the Bengals game, you were observed gesturing for, and then wearing, a decorative poncho and sombrero in the bench area…Compounding your violation is the fact that your actions were premeditated and deliberate. Prior to the game on your publicly accessible Twitter account, you posted the following: ‘What I’ve planned for today will get me fined when I score but it’s so worth it.’”
The Bengals are currently 9-3 and sitting atop the NFC North Division heading into their next game on Sunday against the NFL North leading Minnesota Vikings. Chad has already mapped out his next big performance, tweeting on Tuesday: “Adam this Sunday when I score I’m taking that loud horn from the Viking mascot and using it<–is that a fine to?”
