Ochocinco defies bedtime to watch Obama speak

Chad Ochocinco references his self-imposed curfew like a badge of honor, so it's going to take special circumstances for the professional tweeter Patriots wide receiver not to be tucked in by 8 p.m.

President Barack Obama's State of the Union address on Tuesday night apparently qualified, joining a category of sacred exemptions that includes playing video games with Michael Vick.

Ochocinco watched the President with the wide-eyed wonderment of a young boy, his unfiltered thoughts documented via social media.

This is why Twitter was invented. Let's dive into the mind of Ochocinco, shall we?

I can't go to sleep what time is the State of the Union Address? — Chad Ochocinco (@ochocinco) January 24, 2012

Not being rude but if they stand up and clap on every statement Obama says this could go on well over 3 hours.

Anybody notice the guy over Obamas left shoulder doesn't seem very happy and he's not smiling. He's not clapping with joy

@SpeakerBoehner Just read some of your tweets and you seem pretty angry kind sir. I can see you on tv but you're not smiling. Hope you're ok

Speech is awesome but how did he manage to memorize so much material? RT @wolfclaw5: @ochocinco what do you think of the speech so far?

Has there ever been a President speak without a teleprompter? Difficult RT @Dlawsage: @ochocinco he reads it on a prompter in front of him.

I learned that Obama will again and John Boehner isn't a happy guy. RT @NotChooch: @ochocinco so what did you learn from the #STOU

Will? Will what? Win? Lose? Give us the answer, Ochocinco!

On Wednesday morning, Boehner responded to repeated Ochocinco messages.

@ochocinco: Thanks & good luck in the @SuperBowl; we'll see you in the playoffs next year. Go #Bengals #WhoDey

— Speaker John Boehner (@SpeakerBoehner) January 25, 2012

Your government at work for you!
