Well, if you’re good at something might as well show it off.
Redskins QB Robert Griffin III was on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night, but he wasn’t showing off his masturbatory skills as WTOP 103.5, Washington’s only all-news radio station, would have you believe with the above headline. No, RG3 flashed his winning smile, “Go Catch Your Dream” custom socks with cape, and impressive beatbox skills to Leno and his audience.
And yes, WTOP has changed the headline to read “RGIII shows off his socks and his beat on Leno,” which is a tad more appropriate, not too mention family friendly. Probably just an overtired, overworked editor on the night shift who didn’t realize what exactly was being implied with the original racy headline. Or someone who didn’t give a sh*t because it was their last day on the job. Either explanation is plausible.
Here’s RG3 on Leno (the beatboxing comes near the end of the clip)…
Wait, he’s not only a talented football and basketball player who can beatbox with the best of them, he writes songs too? It’s like RG3 is the genetically perfect love child of Bo Jackson, Liza Minnelli, and Darren “The Human Beat Box” Robinson from The Fat Boys. I just blinded myself with science!
