From Larry Brown Sports:

Robert Griffin III is so popular in Washington, D.C., he even has Christmas carols about him.

A group of children from Janney Elementary School in the Tenleytown neighborhood of D.C. sung a rendition of the popular holiday carol "O Christmas Tree," but they turned it into one about the Redskins quarterback and called it "O RG3."

According to D.C. Sports Bog, the carol was shown on CSN Washington's pregame show prior to Washington's 27-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 16.

Griffin tweeted about the carol and clearly appreciated it:

When you lead the Redskins to first place in the NFC East and have a rookie season that puts you in the conversation for NFL MVP, these are the types of honors you receive in return.

From Christmas carols to social media trends, RG3 sure has taken over the nation's capital.

  • REALLY???? Brainwashing them at such a young age SHAME on you!!!!!
  • notsonice, i completely agree...do they even look happy?
  • LIGHTEN UP!!! Kids and adults here like RGIII. Do you think kids can't form their own opinions? He is young, polite and stays out of trouble. This is the kind of person I would like my kids to emulate.
  • Right On!!!!!
  • scrooge.
  • Truly heaven sent?

    What if one of those kids comes from a non-christian family?
    And even if they do, who says they want to grow up christian?

    Brainwashing young children into singing about jesus and heaven, reciting the pledge of allegiance "one Nation under God"...

    What makes christian think it's okay to force their beliefs on other people...especially these youngsters who haven't even had a chance to make up their own mind?

    This makes me sick.
  • Makes you sick. That's whats wrong with our country. Its the small percent of people like you that we have to change everything in this country. Maybe if people listened to the masses and not the few we wouldn't have idiots like you posting stuff like this on websites.
  • What makes me sick is the fact that our country has expelled God from the schools. So please don't ask "where was God"? after a tragedy strikes. We kicked Him out!! I guess you want your children to grow up in a Godless society that is heading toward anarchy. Oh, you forgot to capitalize "Jesus".
  • Get a life hanthion. With all that has happened in the past week you could direct your hatred elsewhere. RG is a great person on and off the field. I hope that my kids look up to that kind of athelete.

    And, if these children are from a non-christian family I don't think their parents or guardians would have allowed them to participate.

    Find a job and move out of your parent's basement.
  • This is awesome...that song would have NEVER worked with "Rex Grossman"
  • I think I just threw up in my mouth a little...these must be the same idiots that came up with that mind numbing BHO chant!
