Tweet Your Way Into #RG3toDC Mosaic

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 27, 2012 – 7:49 pm

Over the last 24 hours, the Redskins have endorsed a Twitter campaign based on the hashtag #RG3toDC.  The Twitter gatekeepers at Redskins Park (i.e. me) have kept an eye on the tweets throughout the day to monitor the excitement level from fans.

Not surprisingly, it’s off the charts.

Over on the Redskins.com homepage, a landing page has actually been set up to track these tweets, by turning the twitpics into a Griffin mosaic.  If you hover over the mosaic, the pictures become visible, and if you click on a given pixel, the corresponding tweet appears.

It’s pretty cool.

Most of the mosaic is being filled in by average, die-hard Redskins fans, but a number of celebrities have rolled out the burgundy carpet for Robert Griffin III, recording video greetings.  Those videos have been tweeted out throughout the day on our Redskins Twitter handle (@Redskins), and I encourage you to check up on each video.

After watching the videos, put together your own welcome video, and tweet it to @Redskins with the hashtag #RG3toDC.

Here’s the VIP list of welcomes to the district for Robert Griffin III. Click on the twitvid link to watch: Read more »

Earlier this afternoon, new Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III boarded Redskins One bound for Washington D.C.  This is Griffin’s first trip to his new home as a member of the organization, and he enjoyed the relaxation of the team’s official charter plane.

Griffin will arrive at Redskins Park later this afternoon, to meet with the coaching staff and get started on his journey as a Redskin.  #RG3toDC is in full effect, and we’ll be covering every step of this young man’s path.

The Most Interesting Man In Washington

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 26, 2012 – 9:33 pm

At a little before 8:15 p.m. EDT, the Redskins ended months of speculation and secrecy, turning in their draft card for the No. 2 overall pick.  It was written in perfectly legible hand writing, so that there was no mistake in their intent:

“Griffin III, Robert”

But with the stroke of a pen and the passing of a card, the Redskins took a major leap towards a Redskins Renaissance, adding the elusive franchise quarterback.

Make no mistake–the journey has only just begun, and the work is still yet to come.  Griffin has never stepped foot on an NFL field, and between now and September 9th, he will have to ingest a playbook and prove his muster.

But it feels like a victory tonight, and Griffin, team executives, and Redskins fans have every right to be excited.  The rumors and speculation are over, along with the apprehension of disaster.  #RG3toDC is in full effect, and one of the most electrifying playmakers to ever play quarterback is scheduled to board his flight to Washington tomorrow.

Congratulations Robert, congratulation fans, and Hail to the Redskins. Say hello to : Read more »
