Morning pixels:


On Sunday Dan pointed out that Robert Griffin III had taken a black marker and written the word “heart” on his pregame warmup gear. The rookie quarterback has a history of adding inspirational sayings to his clothing, so it wasn’t a huge deal.

Until we realized that he was using the “H” in the word to cover up a Nike swoosh.

The NFL is in its first year of an apparel deal with Nike, and as we all know, RGIII is an adidas guy. Not so subtle, Griffin.

A league source told ESPN yesterday that the clever modification did not sit well with the league.

“It won’t happen again,” said NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy.

I asked RGIII about it at yesterday’s press conference and he played coy.

“I have not heard from the league yet,” he said with a smile. “That’s all I’ll say about that.”

BECAUSE YOU DON’T READ THE PAPER...
* John Lannan replaces Strasburg. Nats win.

* Boz says the Orioles are not just a fluke. Hey look. Orioles.

* Notre Dame is joining the ACC for all sports except football and hockey.
