The H.O.F. gets an early nomination

Again, during a game against the Ravens, Ochocinco grabbed a touchdown pass from Carson Palmer. With the game being played on Monday night, the whole country was watching and waiting to see what the legendary wide receiver would do. After the catch, there was a moment of slight disappointment when he just ran to the sideline, seemingly to celebrate privately with his teammates.

Luckily, the cameras stayed with him as he pulled out a golden jacket, put it on, and turned around. The back of the jacket read “Future H.O.F. 20??”, making it perfectly clear where he thought he deserved to be.

The beauty of this celebration is in the pre-made prop that he was planning on using. Many Ochocinco celebrations were thought out well in advance and prepared to make sure they were just right during the game. The jacket showed the amount of planning that went into executing this celebration.

This was also a different look for the Bengals star because he did not have to do anything other than just wear the jacket. The advanced planning lets Ochocinco just wander the sideline while getting all the attention and claim that his antics provide.
