Pop singer Nick Lachey got kicked out of the Bengals-Chargers game on Sunday.  Some stellar lip reading reveals the reason why.

Nick Lachey is well known for being the former husband of Jessica Simpson and the lead singer of the band 98 Degrees.  Don’t let the smooth taste fool you though.  Nick Lachey proved on Sunday that it’s dangerous to judge a pop singer book by its cover.

Lackey got kicked out of Qualcomm Stadium on Sunday for getting into an altercation with another fan.  The Cincinnati Bengals beat the San Diego Chargers 20-13, but Lachey didn’t see the outcome from the stands.  He was ejected for taking part in some stadium smack talk.

If you look really closely, Lachey (gray Bengals shirt) can be seen having words with a fan decked out in an Igor Olshansky #99 jersey.  The fan clearly says, “Quit playin games with my heart.”  Lachey replies by yelling, “I was never a member of the Backstreet Boys, punk!”  It was on from there.

Okay, maybe my lip-reading skills need some work, but it’s pretty darn funny that a pop singer got kicked out of an NFL game for having words.  We’re not joking when we say NFL crowds are getting crazier and crazier.
