Up In Lights: Robert Griffin III

Robert Griffin III’s welcome home festivities are officially under way.

Even before he became the No. 2 overall selection by the Washington Redskins in April’s NFL Draft, the quarterback has been a sensation in the D.C. area — and even nationwide, as evident by his Heisman Trophy from his final season at Baylor.

The Griffin III mania should reach an all-time high tomorrow, when the Redskins play host to the Indianapolis Colts at FedExField in Washington’s first home preseason game of the 2012 season.

The homecoming was made official last night when a 74-foot-tall image of Griffin III was projected onto the Newseum’s First Amendment Wall along Pennsylvania Avenue for four hours.

The projection of Griffin III’s image on the wall was an effort to officially welcome the native Texan to D.C., said Cathy Trost, vice president of exhibits, programs and media relations at the Newseum.

Here’s the facts: Griffin III has played in two preseason games so far. He hasn’t taken a single regular-season snap in an NFL game. He doesn’t have any meaningful highlight touchdown passes or electric runs in a Redskins uniform under his belt.

But one thing’s for sure: this area sure likes this guy. And they should. And that’s all that matters right now.

I’m sure Griffin III will earn the rest of the praise on the field this season and beyond.
