But his trip to D.C. was not for nothing; the well-known soccer fan and former MLS trialist took in Saturday’s El Clasico at Public Bar in Dupont. The bar posted a couple of pics on its Facebook page, writing “Thanks for stopping by and being a gentlemen b-4 the big game tomorrow!”

My pals at the Reliable Source reported that Ochocinco “stayed low-profile, sipping ginger ale and chatting with a female friend,” but plenty of people noted his presence on Twitter. Sadly, he did not wear his custom-made Ochocinco D.C. United jersey.
