Ochocinco Takes Steelers Fan on a Shopping Spree
Over at his Twitter account on Friday, Ochocinco tweeted: "Hotel manager name is Jesse, first person to say my name Ocho Cinco to Jesse at the Marriot we about to act a donkey in the mall."
Jesse Staigler, one of the shift managers at the hotel, turned into a minor celebrity as at least 50 people who headed down to the Pittsburgh Marriott to find him (Ochocinco was in town for today's Steelers-Bengals game). David Anderson was the first person to get to the Marriott, so he was the lucky winner of a shopping spree paid for by the Bengals wide receiver. Fans were still calling the hotel hours later asking for Jesse. Like most everyone else who lives in the Pittsburgh area, Anderson is a Steelers fan.
The shopping spree is only the latest in a long line of publicity stunts by Ochocinco. He was fined by the NFL for his fake attempted bribe of an official in last week's game and he had promised to send a crate of mustard the the Steelers' defensive backs because they couldn't "ketchup to him." Bengals coach Marvin Lewis banned Ochocinco from sending the mustard, but a crate showed up anyway with a card saying it was from a Fan of Ochocinco.
