Terrell Owens, Chad Ochocinco: Celebrations and Possible Collaborations
Touchdown celebrations should be in full force this upcoming season in Cincinnati.
With both Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco playing for the Bengals, there should never be a dull moment when either reaches the end zone.
From dance moves to popcorn eating, the pair has gotten its fair share of fines over the years from the NFL.
Some fans love them. Other fans hate them.
But they do entertain them.
Here are five of Owens' and five of Ochocinco's top celebrations along with four potential collaborations for this year.
No. 1 Terrell Owens the Cheerleader
Those San Francisco 49ers cheerleaders sure look happier than usual following a touchdown in 2002.
That's because Terrell Owens took two pom-poms and struck up a freestyle routine as the Green Bay Packers got ready for the extra-point.
Owens just needs to find a clip of this past performance and show it to the producers of "Dancing With the Stars."
No. 2 Chad Ochocinco the Lifeguard
With teammates telling others to stay back, Chad Ochocinco performed CPR on a football he caught for a touchdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
From here, his technique seems a bit off. The referee seems to look the other way.
No word on whether the football made it.
No. 3 Terrell Owens the Popcorn-Eater
Football comes down to entertainment, so why not grab a bag of popcorn?
That's exactly what Terrell Owens did in 2007 after scoring a touchdown against the Green Bay Packers.
Pretty sure the fan didn't mind the wasted snack that might still be stuck in Owens' old Dallas Cowboys helmet.
No. 4 Chad Ochocinco the Golfer
Not only does Chad Ochocinco try for the putt, but he pulls off his best Tiger Woods impression when the golfer was still at the top of his game.
Ochocinco did the infamous Tiger fist pump after the pylon—er club—got the football into the imaginary hole.
No word on whether PGA officials will now look into his skills set and request a change of sport.
No. 5 Terrell Owens Mocks Ray Lewis
As a Miami Hurricane, it takes some major guts to mock Ray Lewis.
Not only is he one of the greatest linebackers of all time, but he's an intimidating force for the tough Baltimore Ravens defense.
A feud between the pair led to a 2004 game when Terrell Owens imitated Lewis' entrance dance following a touchdown.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?
No. 6 Chad Ochocinco Proposes
Turns out Chad Ochocinco has been married before, Cheryl Burke.
His "Dancing With the Stars" partner should look at this 2005 clip against the Indianapolis Colts as proof.
Following a touchdown, he got down on one knee and proposed to a cheerleader, with fellow wideout T.J. Houshmandzadeh serving as the best man.
The best news is she said yes. What happened, kids?
No. 7 Terrell Owens and John Hancock
Before more details came out, everyone wanted to know who the autographed football went to.
Turns out that after his touchdown on Monday Night Football in 2002, Terrell Owens pulled out a Sharpie and signed the football for his financial adviser who was in the stands.
Surprisingly, Owens wasn't fined for the celebration, but after Joe Horn later celebrated with a cell phone, the NFL banned props of that kind.
Fittingly, Sharpie got Owens onboard as a celebrity endorser.
No. 8 Chad Ochocinco Riverdances
Perhaps the producers of "Dancing With the Stars" saw Chad Ochocinco's potential in this very celebration.
After a touchdown against the Chicago Bears, he broke out into full Riverdance mode.
Question is, how long did it take for him to practice that?
No. 9 Terrell Owens Serves a Football
Instead of going with the celebration that caused too much trouble (see his take on Emmett Smith's touchdown ritual in Dallas), here's a meaningful one.
When Terrell Owens scored his 100th career touchdown in Philadelphia, he
decided to become a waiter and serve up a healthy dose of football.
After pulling a towel from his waist, he folded it over his arm, and then placed the football in the palm of his hand, holding it over his shoulder.
Where's the beef?
No. 10 Chad Ochocinco Wants No Fine
Let the guys just have fun.
That's all Chad Ochocinco asked for following a touchdown. That's what he and Terrell Owens will try to do this upcoming season.
The NFL's response to his stunt above: an ironic $10,000 fine.
Future Celebration: Dancing with the Stars
With both Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco on the same team, wouldn't it only make sense if the "Dancing With the Stars" veteran decided to help T.O.?
What better way than for the pair to collaborate on a routine following a touchdown.
It doesn't have to be a couples dance like the above photo.
Future Celebration: Pylon Lightsabers
Chad Ochocinco has already donned a jacket and sombrero.
Why not take it that extra step and duel with Terrell Owens following a touchdown? They could be two musketeers. Or "Star Wars" characters.
It's sure to get the home crowd going.
Future Celebration: Imitation of Bengal Cubs
The cutest animal at the zoo is arguably a baby tiger.
Its favorite football team? The Cincinnati Bengals.
What better way to celebrate this fact than have Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco work out some playful imitation? Or carry out the tune from "The Hangover"?
Future Celebration: Make the "Decision"
Chad Ochocinco is a Miami native.
LeBron James' "Decision" became a television event of the summer.
Who's to say that Terrell Owens and Ochocinco can't jokingly write up a quick note to show the camera that says they're headed to South Beach too?
Though it would come off as bad taste since they play in Ohio...
