Six-time NFL Pro Bowl wide receiver Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson has been issuing challenges to his fans on Twitter to play video games with him while he travels to different states across the U.S.

Johnson has been traveling to support his daughter's athletics, but in his downtime, the man who calls himself "#FIFA18KING" just wants to play some video games. The game, FIFA 18, is a soccer video game in which Johnson has an undefeated streak.

When Johnson tweeted that he was going to be in the Des Moines area, 20-year-old Pete Ruden replied, challenging Johnson to a game. But Ruden and his mother never expected the former NFL star to actually show up at their house.

Ruden and Johnson played three games, and Johnson won all three. But for Ruden, who watches and idolizes Johnson, the experience was a dream come true, even though he lost.
