A lot of people feel a lot of different ways about Tim Tebow and the Tim Tebow media experience, but has anyone ever stopped to consider how this has affected Chad Ochocinco?

That man's need for media attention has fed his co-dependent relationship with the media and sports blogs for years. The Ocho needs headlines. But right now, for anyone to grab a headline from Tim Tebow, it seems like they'd have to go full O.J.

Fortunately, Chad Ochocinco's found a workaround. He's done something awesome, and it warrants attention.

A few days ago, a college student named Victor Gonzalez let Chad know on Twitter that he'd been tweeting to him for two years and had not gotten a response. What do you have to say to that, Chad?

He's making it happen, too. The Ocho has hooked Victor up with a ticket to the game, a plane ticket and a hotel room. Victor will be in the house to see Chad and Tom Brady and the Patriots take on the Broncos and their somewhat popular quarterback.

Nice work, Ocho. You're a kind man.

Gracias, Larry Brown Sports.
