Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco invited Victor Gonzalez, a Florida college student who he met on Twitter, to New England’s playoff game this Saturday against the Denver Broncos, according to CBS Boston.

Gonzalez drew Ochocinco’s attention by sending him a tweet telling the Pro Bowl receiver that he had never received a response from him despite tweeting to him for two years.  Ochocinco responded last Sunday to the young fan by inviting him to this weekend’s game.  Gonzalez received a confirmation phone call from Ochocinco Wednesday night offering to pay for Victor’s flight, hotel, and ticket for this weekend’s game.
