Marvin Lewis Nixes Ochocinco’s Attempt To Mail Mustard To Heinz Field

ESPN:

Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis has put the kibosh on condiments.

Receiver Chad Ochocinco tweeted this week that he planned to send mustard to the Pittsburgh Steelers in advance of their game Sunday at Heinz Field. When Lewis got wind of the plan, he put an end to it.

I get it — mustard is the opposite of ketchup, so by sending mustard, the Steelers will… the opposite of win… which is lose? I think? Makes sense.

Maybe Hines Ward should retaliate by sending the Bengals whatever the opposite of Cincinnati is — how about a Lombardi Trophy? AWWWWW SHHHHEEEEEEETTTTTTTT I TOTALLY WENT THEREEEEEEE U DO NOT HAVE A SUPER BOWL TROPHY U LOSERS HERE WE GO STEELERS HERE WE GO WOOO WOOO HERE WE GO STEELERS HERE WE GO WOOO WOOO [“Renegade” plays on a loop for nine hours]

Seriously, though, Chad Ochocinco has definitely entered the rare group of legitimately entertaining athletes along with guys like Shaq and Gilbert Arenas, as opposed to the much more common “laughing at them” athletes, like the Raiders. Any pregame banter that deviates from Mike Tomlin essentially singing the song “RESPECT” about the Steelers’ opponents every week only makes things more interesting, as far as I’m concerned.

Mustardgate nonwithstanding, the Steelers are still 7 point favorites. Crazy.
