Nick Lachey became a huge Cincinnati sports fan while growing up in Ohio. And even though he calls Cali home these days, his allegiance still lies with Cincy. So when the Cincinnati Bengals traveled to California to play the San Diego Chargers on Sunday, Lachey went over to Qualcomm Stadium to cheer on his hometown team. Unfortunately, the former member of 98 Degrees wasn't able to see the game in its entirety.
Originally, TMZ reported that Lachey was kicked out for excessive trash talking, but according to the man himself, that wasn't necessarily how it all went down.
For the record, i was not kicked out of the chargers game for excessive "trash talking". no, that honor belonged to the guy in front of me!— Nick Lachey (@NickSLachey) December 3, 2012
i simply don't appreciate someone turning around and putting their finger in my face. call me crazy, but that deserved a reaction.— Nick Lachey (@NickSLachey) December 3, 2012
A former boy band member with street cred? That's a first.
again, aside from a few exceptions, i had a great time hanging with Charger fans all afternoon. honestly, some of the nicest fans around.— Nick Lachey (@NickSLachey) December 3, 2012
Ah, we take that back.
