TORONTO -- They won't meet for another 10 weeks, but the excitement is building for the first Alouettes/Roughriders matchup of the 2014 season.
And true to form, Chad Johnson is smack-dab in the middle of it all.
While fielding questions from fans on his massively-popular Twitter account yesterday, Johnson singled out Roughriders safety Tyron Brackenridge as someone who he's excited to go up against at some point during the upcoming campaign.
The ensuing reply from Brackenridge, and the resulting conversation between the two stars had the CFL Twitter community, especially those from Rider Nation, pumped for the Week 8 clash.

@ochocinco your cfl career will be short messing with me! You better ask your teammates or better yet find out for yourself..— TYRON BRACKENRIDGE (@TBrack41) June 10, 2014
@ochocinco they speak highly of me for a reason. It's a thin line between tough & stupid. If your not looking out for #41 you'll regret it..— TYRON BRACKENRIDGE (@TBrack41) June 10, 2014
