Best in show: We need T.O. and Ocho in Cincinnati

Wed, Mar 10

A couple of years ago, Al Pacino and Robert De Niro appeared on screen together for only the second film in their game-changing careers. That film, "Righteous Kill," was deemed by pretty much everyone to be a cinematic disaster. And it was … but it was still crazy entertaining, sort of like this YouTube spoof by a dude named Max Koch parodying both actors. Any time I get to see Pacino and De Niro playing cartoon versions of themselves, I'm game. When I can see them do it together in the same film for 100 minutes, I'm even more game.

This is why I'm a huge fan of the "Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens in Cincy" idea.

I can't think of a better move, as long as Ocho and T.O. go all-in. And by all-in, I mean entertainment over football. No NFL dudes can play caricatures of themselves better than Ocho and T.O., so why not take this chance and get into some epic showin'-out?

I keep hearing them talk about the Lombardi trophy and football stuff. Forget all that -- I want them to set aside a few hundred G's apiece just for Roger Goodell. I'm talking about doing the Kid 'N Play dance … for first downs, even if neither of them catches the ball. Come out with a rap album -- with a Carson Palmer diss track -- and set up tour dates for Saturday nights, in the city of that week's opponent. Go on UStream and cry a few times -- together. Wear minks on the sidelines. I'm talking all-in.

Early in February, on the NFL Network, Owens said, "The league don't want to see [Ochocinco and I on the same team]. That's too dynamic." Yeah, whatever man -- you're talking football again. All I know is that I definitely want to see a full season of Ocho and T.O. in Pacino/De Niro "Righteous Kill" mode … because it'd be too awesome.
