Robert Griffin III is going into his third season with the Washington Redskins. He should know how obsessive the team's fans can get.
Seriously, these people dress like pigs in women's clothing. Well, a handful of them do anyway, and that's a handful more than the world really needs.
So the last thing the rest of us need is for the Redskins' star quarterback to actual encourage an over-the-top fanatic. But that's exactly what RG3 did before the team broke training camp in Richmond, Va.
As the players did their thing on the practice field, one man belted out what seems to be a self-composed Redskins fight song centered mainly around Griffin (and his nickname, which is repeated incessantly throughout).
I can't get the song out of my head, so maybe it's pretty catchy ... or maybe it's because the dude keeps singing it over and over and over.
Anyway, he sings it with such enthusiasm (and volume) that it catches the attention of several players, including Griffin.
Much to the delight of the crowd, Griffin jogs over and jams along to the song, while also allowing the singer to poke and stroke him while belting his little heart out. The 2012 offensive rookie of the year even applauds the effort.
And, thus, a stalker was born.
Seriously, Robert, do you really want to encourage that guy? Sure, it's pretty funny now, but will it be when he's singing the same song at your car after practice every day — or outside your window every night?
At the very least, you've helped create a nuisance for the normal Redskins fans (assuming their are some), who will have to put up with that song everywhere that guy shows up.
And don't think that a guy who has enough time to compose his own team song doesn't have the time to show up at pretty much every Redskins-related event from here on out now that the team's superstar has acknowledged his existence.
Nice going, RG3 ... RG3 ... RG3 ... RG3. (Sorry, couldn't help myself).
