A new Homewood Suites by Hilton is being constructed in Springfield, Va., and the company will be holding a job fair on Dec. 10 to find 35 new employees for the hotel. Along with the usual qualifications required for employment in the hospitality business, the hotel has announced that they’ll be paying special attention to applicants with the initials “RGIII.” Seriously.
“Like everyone else in the Washington area, we have RGIII fever,” said Chris Tyner, general manager of the Homewood Suites, via HeraldOnline. “To show our support for the Redskins we are giving extra consideration to job candidates with those initials. We’re looking for 35 men and women, regardless of their initials, who can provide the same sort of excitement and flawless execution to our guests that RGIII does on the football field.”
I’m not sure what “extra consideration” actually means, or if you have to have the suffix to get it. But with Robert Griffin III’s marketability, a hotel staffed by RGIIIs could make some cash.
BECAUSE YOU DON’T READ THE PAPER
* The Wizards have a spring in their step after beating the Heat.
* The Ravens have not done well on the road, which is a good sign for Sunday.
* RGIII is approaching rockstar status.

A.J. Price, describing Shaun Livingston’s dunk from Tuesday night:
“Surprising. A full windmill, not a chinmill. In New York, we say chinmill.”
QUOTE OF THE NIGHT II
Shaun Livingston on his dunk:
“Every now and then, an old dog pulls some tricks out the bag. Back in my young days, I had a little bounce. You’ve got to pace it now because the recoveries take longer now.”
