After doing just absolutely nothing during the Patriots/Dolphins game on Monday Night Football—despite Tom Brady's record-setting performance—Chad Ochocinco was, dare we say, selfless yesterday morning when he jumped on his Twitter account and praised the Pats' offensive performance the previous night. He didn't complain about his lack of touches or call out Brady for not looking his way more often. Rather, he seemed in awe of what he'd seen. "Just waking up after a late arrival," he tweeted. "I've never seen a machine operate like that n person, to see video game numbers put up n person was WOW."
Innocent enough, right? To you, maybe. But, to former Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi, it was anything but an innocent tweet. In fact, Bruschi was so upset by Ocho's words that he called him out for it during an interview on Boston sports radio station WEEI yesterday by telling him to "drop the awe factor" and "stop tweeting and get in your playbook."
"You're not someone who's on another team or watching TV," Bruschi said. "You're not an analyst. You're a part of it. They want you to be a part of it. So get with the program because obviously you're not getting it and you're tweeting because you're saying, 'It's amazing to see'? It's amazing to see because you don't understand it. You still don't understand it and it's amazing to you because you can't get it...Wake up! If you're just waking up now...get out your bed and get to the stadium and watch some film if you still think it's amazing. If you're in it and you know what you're doing and you execute out there, you don't think it's amazing. You know why? Because it's what you're supposed to do."
And just like that, Bruschi became the first man to ever shut Ocho up. He hasn't tweeted since... [via ESPN]
