Ochocinco eyes rifle after TD

Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco is calling his "shot".
Rhona Wise/Icon SMIMinutemen fire their muskets after Patriots touchdowns at home games.
In anticipation of the season-opener against the Patriots on Sept. 12, Ochocinco is already planning his touchdown celebration.
"If I am able to score Week 1 in New England, I will be taking the Minutemen rifle and firing as they do when the Pats score," he wrote on Twitter.
For each Patriots game, the team has Minutemen standing behind each end zone, and they react accordingly when the team scores. This has been an annual tradition as part of recognizing the history of the region.
No word on if Bill Belichick is expanding his game-plan to include the Minutemen and "rifle security."
But the anticipated sellout crowd might consider ducking if Ochocinco, who weekly discovers new ways to integrate humor into his pre-game routine, finds his way into the end zone.
