Robert Griffin III’s love of all things superheroes is no secret, but dropping a reference into a press conference still gets a laugh from his media audience.
During Griffin’s weekly Monday presser, he was asked about any conversations he’s had with fellow rookie Alfred Morris about the running back’s game performance.
“Like I told him after the game, I grew up with Captain Planet, so I say, ‘We got our rookie powers. Unite.’” Griffin said. “So he’s doing a good job.”
The Captain Planet reference gave the media crowd enough pause to allow RGII to make his press conference escape.
“Gotta leave ‘em speechless,” he said as he walked off the podium.
