Chad Ochocinco takes his fair share of abuse on this website and others, but his latest antics deserve only praise.
One day before his wedding to Evelyn Lozada, Ochocinco received a tweet from a woman named Cheryl Minton, who asked the Miami Dolphins wideout for encouragement and prayers after her husband passed away in June.
The woman clearly is in a tough spot. Ochocinco invited her to a happier one.
Ocho's Twitter feed told the story:
You have a passport? RT @cheryl2958: I'm feeling pretty low today. Lost my hubby 2 weeks ago. Together 30 years. Very hard.- Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) July 3, 2012
Can you pack and come to the wedding? RT @cheryl2958: @ochocinco Yes I do.- Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) July 3, 2012
Check ya DM... Just start packing... Evelyn will make arrangements... see you tonight/early a.m. RT @cheryl2958: Yes.where is it?- Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) July 3, 2012
@ochocinco o. Ok. I'm flabbergasted! I love you!- Cheryl Minton (@cheryl2958) July 3, 2012
Ochocinco periodically is a nuisance, but there's no denying his heart on this one.
From the wide angle, Ochocinco's issues with the New England Patriots' playbook are relatively meaningless. His place in the world is secure, no matter how long he plays. Good work, sir.
(With that said, we're still not sure about those wedding shoes.)
Update: Ochocinco later tweeted a photo of Minton and himself at the wedding.
