Hundreds Line Up For Free Bengals Tickets

    CINCINNATI  --- (Fox 19) ---  Hundreds of people lined up overnight at Paul Brown Stadium to grab up a pair of free tickets to Sunday's game against the Houston Texans.

     Many people waited overnight Friday into Saturday for two of the 1200 seats being given away after they were purchased by Motorola and Chad Ochocinco,  the Bengals wide receiver.

    The tickets were purchased to make the game a sellout and  the team could avoid a blackout on local television coverage.

    To keep the giveaway fair and orderly,  the team gave bracelets to fans line and each bracelet was good for a pair of tickets.

    The last bracelet was given by 2:30 am Saturday morning and tickets were handed out at 11:30 am. 

    Chad Ochocinco showed up to greet the crowd.   He handed out several autographed footballs.
