It’s a no-brainer these days that Robert Griffin III will be the most talked about figure in sports when you wake up in the morning. Hearing an update on No. 10 has become as much of your daily preparations as brushing your teeth. Everyone is talking about him.
Actually make that every moment of every day. If Griffin III buys blueberries from the grocery store, expect a spike in sales of all blue fruits in the coming days. Seriously, he has that type of effect on produce. Or just his loyal fans.
If you’re one of the millions who tunes into SportsCenter after a hard day’s work at 6pm daily, this serves as a reminder that “RGIII: The Will to Win” by NFL Films and Gatorade Productions is set to air on tonight at 7 p.m. EST so don’t turn your fancy high definition TV’s off after top plays. Otherwise you’ll miss a fantastic feature on the life of not only the franchise quarterback, but of a young man who’s adjusting to married life away from his native Texas.
For you West Coast fans out there—enjoy having the reigning AP Offensive Rookie of the Year being your get my out of work early card.
Before you hit record on your DVR tonight, here are a few snippets/promos from the documentary:
As most were hitting the snooze on their alarm for a fourth time, Griffin III was doing wind sprints inside of the Redskins indoor practice facility.
In his first homecoming since being drafted by the Redskins last, No. 10 feasted on the Dallas Cowboys’ defense en route to an epic 28 point second quarter. If that wasn’t enough, he thwarted the Cowboys bid at an NFC East title in Week 17. As the rivalry enters a renaissance, the star quarterback received a coffee from a Dallas fan that will be used to “drown your sorrows after we whip you this year”.
Obviously No. 10 is always on the go. You should have gotten him a travel mug.
Despite a serious knee injury at the end of the first playoff game at FedExField since 2000, Griffin III has put in an incredible number of hours to rehab. While it’s still unknown when he will trot to the huddle as the starter, he asks the question: how can you come back if you were never gone?
