Chad Ochocinco

Takes Patriots Fan to Dinner

9/14/2010 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chad Ochocinco didn't hold a grudge against Patriots fans this week just because Cincinnati played New England -- in fact, Chad singled out one Pats season ticket holder and bought the guy the dinner of his life.

The lucky fan is a dude named Will Ditullo -- a die-hard Pats supporter who built a friendship with Ochocinco through Chad's iPhone app.

After learning that Will recently lost his mother to diabetes ... Ochocinco made an effort to connect with the guy in Boston before the game.

We're told the two met up at a fancy restaurant near the Bengals' hotel in Boston -- and Will had the "night of his life" ... in which the two talked about everything from sports to how he coped with his mother's death.

Of course Chad picked up the bill -- but you can't really put a price on a night like that.

Why doesn't Kim Kardashian date Chad? they would be a perfect couple and he meets all of her qualifications. He is black, has a 6 pack, is an athlete and makes alot of money.

They both love to talk about themselves and be the center of attention, this would be a match made in reality heaven!

This guy seems like the real deal. It's nice to see someone famous that doesn't act like it!

I had dinner with Chad in Indianapolis 2 weeks ago at St. Elmo's. He treated 64 people to filet mignon, cheesecake and drinks. It was the most amazing time of my life. He was so nice and down to earth. He had Terrell Owens with him and he was an okay person, I am just not a fan of his. Ocho made us all stand up, hold hands and pray before we ate. He signed autographs, got pictures taken with his fans. He is truly a gentleman and he gave me a night I will never forget. Thanks Chad!

Now that was classy. Kudos Chad.

TMZ needs more stories like this that tell about the good things celebrities do instead of rewarding their bad behavior with free press.
