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 ca

Look what was waiting for WTOP radio station mobile app users in the D.C. area this morning. Backstory: RGIII was on Jay Leno last night doing some beatboxing. Blah, blah, blah. Of course nobody cares what happens on Leno at midnight. What we care about is the headlines dropped the next morning by some underpaid producer who gave us this “RG III beat off on Leno,” gem.
I don’t have nearly as much of a problem with this as the Tim Tebow O’s jersey. At least O’s/Skins fans exist. I’m one of them, and, considering there wasn’t an NFL team in Baltimore or MLB team in D.C. from 1984-1995, there are probably many more.
Still, if you’re going to get an O’s shirsey you should probably get an actual O’s player on the back. They do own...

Life is good for NFL rookies Robert Griffin III and Trent Richardson, they enjoyed the Laker game last night and hung with rapper “the game” at LA Live afterwards. Not a huge fan of “the game” so I would have passed on the picture.-TO
RG3 Goes Back to Black?
RG3′s Brother From Another Mother
Is there anyone left who doesn't like Robert Griffin III after his appearance on the Jay Leno Show Thursday evening?
The man showed grace and wit as though he's done Leno a hundred times before last night.
RG3 revealed a little more about his character in his answers to Leno's questions.
What single play does he believe clinched the Heisman Trophy for him? Griffin...
Typically, when the number one overall NFL draft pick is a quarterback, he gets most of the headlines in the endorsement field. This year, Robert Griffin III is changing that. As the number two player taken in the 2012 NFL draft, RGIII is racking up the early endorsements. Having already signed with Adidas, Griffin has now signed Evoshield. According to Darren...
Robert Griffin III was on with Jay Leno last night and was pretty much the most likeable version of himself, which is to say he was the most likeable person ever. The full interview is above, starting with the band playing “Hail to the Redskins” and ending with RGIII beatboxing. Yes, he even makes beatboxing likeable. [Real Redskins]

There was no breaking news about the Washington Redskins’ selecting of quarterback Robert Griffin III in the first round (second overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft, as the choice was expected. Nevertheless, it was great news for the Redskins and their fans.
“That is the one we always thought we would get from the beginning,” said Redskins executive vice president/head coach Mike...
Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night. He talked about President Obama, his military connections, and of course, his socks.
The Redskins haven’t cultivated a great image for themselves the past few seasons. Dan Snyder’s PR record is terrible. Management continues to fumble rebuilding efforts. (Although, they do...

Previously: RGIII Appears On The Tonight Show With Jay Leno
Now that, my friends, most definitely — to utilize NBC’s old tagline when it dominated prime-time television viewing — would not be “Must See TV.” Ouch. Fans of either unwatchable late-night television talk shows or the Washington Redskins (or both) are aware that Robert Griffin III made an appearance on The Tonight Show on Thursday [...]
Robert Griffin III cracked up The Tonight Show with Jay Leno audience after telling the host that he has met President Barack Obama and challenged him to a game of basketball.
"I have met him, I have not been to the White House since he's been there," said RG3. "I heard he's a huge basketball fan, and I challenged him to a game of basketball. But he told...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. The Orioles are a dramatist's dream and a copy desk's nightmare. They're deadline-killers in cleats, a late-night thrill ride, three-and-a-half games up on the Yankees and two games back of Jay Leno. They sleep for the first two hours of the ballgame, only to awaken like a hungry bear and spend the next half-hour going medieval on the furniture.
Gone are the days when NFL rookies and their agents try to hold out and milk as much money from their new teams as possible as they miss out on rookie minicamps and other offseason workouts. Say what you want about Roger Godell, but realize that his help in the implementation of the rookie wage scale has changed the offseason in the NFL for good. This makes the overall game of football...
