Chad Johnson -- known as Chad Ochocinco during his days as a Patriot, even if Chad Uno Cinco might've been more appropriate, considering he caught just 15 passes during his lone season in Foxborough -- found himself with some free time on Sunday afternoon. So, naturally, the now-Dolphin receiver decided it was a fine time to connect with a few of his 3.6 million Twitter followers.

The prolific tweeter has pledged he'll post just once a day during the work week, so before the weekend was finished he held a Q-and-A session, in which we learned what his ultimate touchdown celebration would be, that the proudest moment of his life was losing his virginity, and that he realized his wife was "the one" when he discovered she was a person for whom he was willing to pause his video games.

We also learned he believes he's already mastered Miami's West Coast offense -- and that's saying something, considering his understanding of the Patriots' playbook apparently never even progressed to the point he was even convinced New England was conducting its business in English:



Based on reports from training camp, Patriots fans can take comfort in knowing early returns indicate the new ocho cinco -- No. 85 Brandon Lloyd -- has received a copy of the gameplan written in his native tongue. Or at least a translated version. Plus, Tom Brady is still around, and even if he and the quarterback didn't connect on the field too often, his ex-receiver certainly still respects him off it.

And, in Johnson's world, that usually seems the more important realm anyway.
