Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Ochocinco just invited a fan to his wedding, thanks to a Twitter conversation. Cheryl Minton told the NFL player about the recent loss of her husband and now finds herself a guest to a celebrity wedding.
It started with a tweet many athletes must get on a regular basis. "I'm feeling pretty low today. Lost my hubby 2 weeks ago. Together 30 years. Very hard. Please pray for me. Thanks..."
Was Cheryl Minton, who directed that tweet earlier today to the Dolphins player, expecting a reply from Ochocinco? She might've been surprised to then see the wide receiver quickly reply back "You have a passport?" When she said yes, he then asked, "Can you come to the wedding?" He was referring to his upcoming wedding on July 4, at a location to be determined in Miami. Evelyn Lozada is marrying the receiver, who promised to live-tweet the nuptials.
Ochocinco then wrote to Minton, who hails from Ohio: "Check ya DM... Just start packing.."
Minton replied with a hearty, "Ok. I'm flabbergasted! I love you!"
The former Bengals and Patriots receiver has been known for helping his fans. He made a nine-year-old dream's come true, and in January 2012 he gave away a playoffs ticket to a Twitter fan.
