New England Patriots' wide receiver Chad Ochocinco tweeted on the disturbed look on the face of Speaker of the House John Boehner during President Obama's State of the Union address on Tuesday night, causing a bit of a twitter stir.

"Anybody notice the guy over Obamas left shoulder doesn't seem very happy and he's not smiling. He's not clapping with joy," Ochocinco tweeted during the President's address.

After one of the NFL's twitter followers helped him identify Boehner as the House Speaker, he decided to reach out to the man who is third in line to succeed the president.

"Just read some of your tweets and you seem pretty angry kind sir," Ochocinco wrote in a post to Boehner. "I can see you on tv but you're not smiling. Hope you're ok."

After receiving no response from the U.S. House Speaker, Ochocinco decided to give it another try on Wednesday morning, with an even stranger tweet.

"Hello Mr. Boehner, hoping you are in better spirits today. If all else seems bad in life just remember I love you kind sir."

Boehner finally responded to the six-time Pro Bowler wishing him and his team good luck in the upcoming Super Bowl, where the Patriots will face the New York Giants.

"Thanks & good luck in the @SuperBowl we'll see you in the playoffs next year," Boehner tweeted back. "Go #Bengals."

Boehner is a Republican representative from Ohio's eighth district, near Cincinnati, where Ochocinco spent the first decade of his professional football career as a Bengal.

One twitter follower was not pleased with the football player and past reality star's exchange with Boehner. "wtf ocho..you didn't even know who he was until last night dummy," the follower wrote.

Ochocinco, never one to mince words, responded, "Well now we are friends you f****** Pansy."
