In the third quarter of Monday night’s game, 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith cut through the line and landed a shot to Robert Griffin III’s most sensitive of areas. It appeared to be unintentional, but that’s no solace to RGIII, who hopped around the field in pain for a while before being able to shake it off.
The internet response was immediate, and the variety of ways in which you can relive the moment is quite impressive.
First, some Vines…
And last, the commentary.
