Retired football star and noted fashion icon Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson dropped a nod to Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers on Twitter on Saturday, repping an orange McDavid sweater while smoking a cigar.

Real recognize real. It’s always cool to see stars across other sports and platforms toss a nod to McDavid and the Oilers. The best hockey player on the planet and one of the best team aesthetics in the league? You love to see it.
Just for fun, here are some other times that stars repped the Oilers…
Drake came on stage wearing a McDavid jersey when he did a concert in Edmonton a few years ago.
Legendary hockey fan Snoop Dogg also rocked an Oilers jersey, with Snoop 19 on the back, at a show in Edmonton.
And then there’s this iconic photo of the late Kobe Bryant wearing a Watne Gretzky jersey before a game in the 2002 NBA Finals.
