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 the AL’s best record through 40 games and early MVP candidate Adam Jones even wears No. 10, you know.
(Many thanks to fellow Skins/O’s fan @mattfacini for the tip-off.)

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...
With the Orioles currently in first place in the powerhouse A.L. East, the Nationals just 1.5 games behind Atlanta in the N.L. East, and the Redskins having drafted Robert Griffin III, things are slowly starting to improve in the Maryland area. Fans have a reason for optimism, and that optimism spans across multiple sports platforms for a change. As you can see from the photo above...
On Thursday, Washington Redskins long snapper Nick Sundberg tweeted an updated pic of the massive, sprawling tattoo he originally started having inked upon his back in 2010. Sundberg explained the theme of the ginormous piece of body art to The Redskins Blog in August 2010: “It’s not finished yet,” Sundberg told Terl, “but it’s a [...]
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]

QB Robert Griffin (Washington)
Cam Newton’s rookie season has fantasy players very excited about Robert Griffin and rightfully so. Griffin won’t rush for the 14 touchdowns Newton rushed for because, well no one does that. As I said under Cam Newton’s write up, the all-time leader in quarterback rushing touchdowns is Steve Young with 43. In his career. And he never had more...
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...
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...
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 [...]
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...
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...
