As expected, Griffining isn’t going away.
You’re going to see a lot of the newest Redskins meme in the next few days, but there is a movement forming to quell the practice. A dedicated Twitter feed, @StopGriffining, is developing a following of people who find the act of posing on your duff with your hands in the air just plain silly.
The feed’s bio explains:
“Remember how cool Tebowing was? What happened to Tebow? RG3 is actually a good QB and not a novelty. So treat him that way. Yes I’m a Skins Fan”

QUOTE OF THE NIGHT
R.A. Dickey on the Nats lineup:
““That’s the best lineup that I’ve faced. They’re just so functional. They’ve got guys that can run. They’ve got great energy. They’ve got old guys that have good approaches. They’ve got young guys that go first to third on you. They’ve got power. Every one of them can hit a home run on you, just about. There’s not a lot of breathing room.”
