Not only does Chad Ochocinco score touchdowns, he scores with his heart as well.

For all of you Ocho haters out there, who cares? The man is having fun with his life, no matter what you think of him; he still wakes up doing something he loves and gets paid handsomely for it.

Ochocinco made a nine-year-old's dream come true. Homeless Ruben St. Hilaire wrote a letter to Ochocinco last year telling him about how he was his favorite player. After Ocho received the letter, he sent him a jersey.

But Ruben received a surprise visit from his hero on his birthday. Check out the video below.
