â†µRight before the clip, Terrell Owens shouted over the P.A. system, "Coach Lewis, is this tampering?" It was a funny moment in the continued campaign by Chad Ochocinco to bring T.O. to Cincinnati. (For what it's worth, Marvin Lewis didn't ever appear to actually talk to T.O. that I could see, so the tampering comment was purely in jest. Lewis was much busier talking to Spike Lee and Mike Zimmer for most of the night.) â†µ
â†µAs for the rest of the party, it was one of those nights that makes you say, "Oh, so this is what it's like to be rich and famous? I could get used to this." Of note that you'll see in this slideshow: Ochocinco, Owens, Spike Lee, Tracy McGrady, Marvin Lewis, Brady Quinn, Josh Freeman and Alfonso Ribeiro (aka Carlton from Fresh Prince). â†µâ†µ
â†µHad a chance to talk with Lee about sneakers. (He was wearing the upcoming and at this point unreleased Air Jordan 2010.) Also chatted with Jordan Palmer, the brother of Bengals QB Carson Palmer, about his burgeoning side career creating athlete iPhone apps. (Expect to see something on FirstCuts on that front in the future.) We probably walked right past numerous other NFL guys, so if you spot any in the pictures, point them out in the comments. â†µâ†µ
