Chad Ochocinco Kicks Extra Point for Bengals: Chad Ochocinco made the deciding score in the Cincinnati Bengals preseason game versus the New England Patriots last night -- a point after touchdown. He also sent the next kickoff to the 10 yard line. Ocho Cinco, a soccer fan who has traveled to Europe to pal around with Thierry Henry, said afterward, "I think Ronaldinho would be proud of me right now." See the video.

I'm glad someone posted this. I hate Ochocinco, but that was the coolest thing I've seen in a while. Credit where credit is due. Chad, you had me at hello.

I really hate saying this - I liked it better than Flutie's drop kick.

I also liked that he didn't go all crazy with himself afterward. He was fairly composed. Just went out and did his thing for special teams.

Technically, you could see he doesn't have the strength training and the efficiency of form and movement that a full time kicker has. Looked like he was overworking the motion a bit.

But who cares? He did great. And with some training, he could be powering straight through those kicks and really driving the ball.

"I think Ronaldinho would be proud of me right now."

Except Ronaldinho usually tries to get them under the crossbar.

That was the best part of that game for me.

Ditto on LLB's point. This was absolutely the best part of the game.
