TCA Press Tour: Chad Ochocinco tweets himself into a guest spot on FX's 'The League'

How did Chad Ochocinco land a guest gig on FX's second-season premiere of "The League?"
Using his favorite medium, of course.
The Cincinnati Bengals tweet-aholic saw an episode of FX's comedy about a fantasy football league in which Andre (Paul Scheer) says "Child, please," a catchphrase Ochocinco used frequently on "Hard Knocks." Ochocinco contacted Scher via Twitter and asked him to put him in the show.
Executive producers-spouses Jeff and Jackie Schaffer were happy to oblige.
"He's perfect for us because he comes from the world of football," Jeff Schaffer said. "He had a blast."
If he didn't, we're sure we'll hear about it on Twitter.
