BOSTON (CBS) – A young man in a small Florida town is packing his bags for Foxboro, and thanking Chad Ochocinco for a ticket to the big game against the Broncos Saturday night.
After a friendly back-and-forth on Twitter, the Patriots wide receiver decided to pick-up the tab for the whole trip.
Victor Gonzalez, a Florida college student, has been tweeting the NFL’s social media king for two years, only to be lost amomg Ochocinco’s three million followers.
Victor’s tweet drew a rather speedy response from him.
Ochocinco offered Victor a flight, hotel room and a ticket for this weekend’s playoff game against the Broncos.
He pledged Victor a phone call with all the details, but over the next 72 hours, nothing.
Just a couple of weeks ago, though, Ochocinco bought dinner and chowed down with a group of local college kids who reached out to him on Twitter.
So why not Victor?
Sure enough, his cell phone rang Wednesday night.
Ochocinco promised it’s a done deal.
