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.
