While catching passes in the NFL, Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson made a name for himself with his over-the-top touchdown celebrations. Years later, now as a member of the CFL's Montreal Alouettes, he's still all about the theatrics. 

Johnson scored his first career CFL touchdown Friday—a 46-yard haul from former Ohio State Heisman-winning quarterback Troy Smith—to momentarily put his team ahead of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. After hitting paydirt, Johnson proceeded to hug the referee, as if to say "I'm so happy to be back."
