Earlier this week, Cincinnati WR Chad Ochocinco promised to perform the famous Lambeau Leap if he scored a touchdown against the Packers. The game’s at Green Bay, so you can only imagine how thrilled the fans would be if the Ocho came flying into their front row seats and looking for a hug.
(Hey, he found some Bengals fans! Wait, how did they get those seats?)
Well, the touchdown did indeed happen in the third quarter today. It was to give the Bengals the lead, as a matter of fact, something the Packer faithful probably didn’t expect at this point in the game. All of which is to say that if you taunt some extra salty Green Bay fans like that, don’t be surprised when you get a fat middle finger waved at you on national television.
Picture & video, for Puritans’ sake, is below the fold.

BAM! That’s doing it like you mean it.
If Cincinnati holds on - they’re up by 7 with the ball halfway through the 4th as of right now - expect plenty of suicide pools to go down in flames today; Green Bay was favored by eight, and most people probably cashed in on Detroit in week 1.
Ochocinco… what more can you say?
*UPDATE*: Chad has the last laugh, Bengals beat Packers 31-24.
