Found May 19, 2013 on Fox Sports Southwest:
People sure do love RG3. How much so? Enough to shower him with wedding gifts even though he could probably buy them all himself. News broke earlier in the month that Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was getting married July 6th to his longtime fianc Rebecca Liddicoat, and the couple had registered at Bed, Bath and Beyond. It didn't take long for the Baylor alum's fans to take action and congratulate the QB on his big day. Earlier Sunday morning, RG3 tweeted a shot of him standing in a room filled with packages of items from the registry and thanked all the fans for their blessings. But, not everyone is happy to see the rich get richer. One 'Debbie Downer' tweeted "something is wrong when the poor buy goods for the rich. Hmmm." to which RG3 replied "Which is why I appreciate the gesture." Even with all the fans hospitality, there are still some items that have yet to be fulfilled, so feel free to show your support as well. The Vera Wang Toasting Flutes are still available. If leading the Washington Redskins to their first division title in 13 years gets RG3 some house goods, there's no telling what people will do if he wins the franchise a Super Bowl.

Grading the Draft: Washington Redskins

Lacking a first-round pick thanks to last year’s blockbuster trade for Robert Griffin III, the Redskins didn’t have any picks in the top 50 this year.

What you missed over the weekend: Weddings, Engagement Rings, Rugby and Barbecue

Via @RGIII.  - Fans reportedly bought out RG III’s wedding registry at Bed Bath and Beyond, but if you look at the registry there are still quite a number of items still listed as needed, so either RG III is big on hyperbole or if the couple is adding new items to their wish list. (Or perhaps in a fit of sanity, fans are canceling their orders.) Thank you to the Fans who are...
