RGIII is a pretty big deal. On Monday night, Robert Griffin III led his Washington Redskins to a 17-16 win over the New York Giants, moving the team to 6-6 and keeping their faint playoff hopes alive for at least another week. In the game, Griffin went 13-for-21 passing for 163 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions, adding 72 yards in five carries on the ground, as well. Despite the Chiefs’ middling ways, Griffin has become one of the biggest sensations in the NFL in years, so suffice to say he’s getting pretty popular in the Capital Beltway. On Tuesday, Griffin hoped to lend through osmosis some of his athletic talents to the lowly Washington Wizards, who came into their game against the Miami Heat stuck at 1-13 on the season. Taking on a supremely talented team like the Heat, most probably didn’t expect that second win to come on Tuesday, but perhaps Griffin brought some of Monday night’s magic with him. With Griffin in attendance courtside, the Magic disposed of the Heat 105-101 despite LeBron James‘ triple-double. Griffin apparently arrived a bit after tipoff, but was announced on the video board some time during the first quarter as the P.A. played “Hail to the Redskins.” Not that Griffin was necessarily taking sides. For the record, he gave hugs to both Washington’s John Wall and James. Check out a picture of Griffin at the game below.

Photo via Twitter/Lindsay Clubine Quote of the Night “The bird was in front of him and I was about 50 yards up on a hill. He got the bird up and lost track of where I was. He pulled the trigger and was like, ‘Uh, oh.’” –Cubs manager Dale Sveum explaining how he got shot by Hall of Famer Robin Yount Tweet of the Night Yes, the Red Sox are currently leading baseball with a leadership index of 17.9. And also yes, I made that number and stat up. When is Baseball Reference’s clubhouse chemistry metric coming out? The Red Sox are front runners to lead the league, right? — Doug Kyed (@DougKyedNESN) December 4, 2012 Video of the Night Rudolph may have a red nose, but what he really needs for Christmas is GPS.
