At this moment, Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson is standing near the 8-yard line conversing with Green Bay Packers cornerbacks Al Harris and Charles Woodson.
Johnson is looking exceptionally dapper in his blonde mohawk, frayed black T-shirt with a silk-screened image of himself and gray sweat pants.
The trio is enjoying a laugh, although I'm certain at least a portion of the conversation relates to Johnson's assertion that Harris and Woodson will soon be denied check marks on his "Who covered 85 in 2006?" list.
For once, C.J. isn't the feature attraction for the Bengals.
The emotional return of Carson Palmer to the Paul Brown Stadium turf is approximately 90 minutes from now.
