Subway provides Robert Griffin III with some food for thought
New York --- Twenty-six potential first-round picks are in town this week for Thursday’s opening round of the NFL draft. They’re being shuttled around the city, meeting with kids, stopping by hospitals and the New York Stock Exchange, and, in the case of Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III, checking out a food sculpture of himself.
Let him explain.
“Subway made a statue out of barbecue chicken for me,” he said. “Some people were like, ‘Oh my God, tear it down!’ But I enjoy a good laugh, and it was a good laugh. You never dream as a kid that, ‘Hey, I want to grow up and have someone make a food sculpture of me.’ ”
And how accurate was it?
“You can never have something look exactly like someone,” he said. “But it was actually really good. My hair was made out of chili peppers, and my teeth were made out of onions. That was probably the only knock, because I had onion breath.”
