No Reindeer Games

I was pretty excited about Chad Johnson's plan for a touchdown celebration featuring a live reindeer. Unfortunately, it did not happen on Saturday. In case you missed the story, here's what Johnson promised:

"On the highway, I hit a deer," Johnson said Tuesday, insisting he was serious and that the animal wasn't hurt. "I kept him. He's at home in the garage. I'm going to use him for the celebration this weekend. He's a prop. They might suspend me for the last game, but I think this one is worth it."

..."This is going to be the greatest celebration of all time, man," he said. "I actually use an animal."

And here's what occurred after Johnson scored a touchdown in the game:

Never will you see someone who just scored a touchdown walk to the sidelines with such dejection. Chad Johnson took one to the house against Buffalo, but could not find his reindeer afterwards.

He went to the sidelines, couldn’t find whatever it was that he was looking for, and was completely dejected. A ref came over and looked like he was explaining something to him. ... Chad did manage to salvage a little something, however, by opening up a bag of gifts he had and distributing them to some fans.

I was bummed that this did not pan out. There's always next Christmas...
