On Friday night in Montreal, former NFL star wide receiver Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson caught his first professional touchdown pass since the 2011 NFL season with the New England Patriots. After the catch he shared a nice moment with one of the game officials.
Back in April, Johnson signed a two-year deal with the Montreal Alouettes. The 46-yard touchdown pass, from former Heisman trophy winning quarterback Troy Smith, was his only catch of the game and gives Johnson a grand total of three catches for 66 yards through three games in the CFL.
It's going to be interesting to see how "Ochocinco's" TD celebrations evolve as the season progresses and he gets more comfortable north of the border. The CFL does not have the same limitations to touchdown celebrations as the "No Fun League" in the US.
I remember that there was one time in the NFL that Johnson has a horse waiting down the tunnel in Cincinnati. I assume he was planning to ride it around the field if he scored...which he did not. That sort of behavior might be welcomed in the CFL.
We'll keep our eyes on the situation all summer long. Stay tuned.
