Video: Chad Ochocinco kicks an extra point in preseason game

| No Comments | No TrackBacks


The powers-that-be would have us believe that the NFL preseason is a necessary evil, a chance for players to hone their skill sets and practice the things they're paid handsomely to perform on Sundays.

They'd have us think that adjusting to the game speed and learning the intricacies of their specific position is why we're watching games that essentially mean as much as the co-ed intramural matches going on at Lincoln Park.

But then things like Chad Ochocinco kicking an extra point happen and we realize we can't wait for the regular season.

After Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Travis Henry pulled in a 24-yard touchdown pass tonight, celebration and tweeting enthusiast Ochocinco (is it just "Cinco" on second reference ... my AP Stylebook never prepared me for this) trotted out to boot the point after.

He got the job done in the form of a rocket right through the uprights and minimal histrionics. Check out his Twitter page later for the inevitable witticism from No. 85.
