I can’t even remember when or why Robert Griffin III became the new Tebow, but it sure seems to have happened. The latest confirmation came Thursday morning, when SportsCenter went live to Ashburn for live and amazing footage of RGIII stretching, live.
Viewers, not surprisingly, were fascinated.

I’m not even mad that they’ve had me watching RGIII’s butt while he stretches for like 10 min

Eventually, he stopped stretching and starting throwing passes, leading to headlines like this one: “RG3 on the field, throwing passes at Redskins’ OTAs.” Which was accurate.
It’s May, by the way.
