RGIII thanks fans for wedding gifts

via @RGIII

When I found Robert Griffin III’s wedding registry and linked to it a couple of weeks ago, I figured some fans would purchase an item or two for the soon-to-be-married couple. But you guys went nuts, and RGIII tweeted a pic of the empty boxes with this thank-you message.


It appears that some things have been added to the registry since the day it went public, so it’s far from completed.

After RGIII’s tweet, some on Twitter voiced the opinion that perhaps he shouldn’t be accepting gifts from fans who most likely make less money than an NFL quarterback. He addressed those concerns with this explanation.

If one of you gets a thank-you note from the couple, send along a pic.
