adidas now selling Robert Griffin III ‘Griffining’ shirts (photo)
Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III’s play thus far this season has been an eye-opener, even for the most optimistic Redskins fan. Few suspected he would make such an impact so early on and those who said they did are either lying or are far better NFL football minds than most folks.
Trying to capitalize on the RG3 phenomenon is adidas — a company that just so happens to have an endorsement deal with RG3 — as adidas now has made a “Griffining” shirt available for sale.
For $22.00, one of the below bad boys can be yours, so everyone knows exactly that you’re the kind of person who enjoys sporting apparel that celebrates a celebration, that celebration being the pose Griffin struck while seated on the turf after completing an 88-yard touchdown pass to Pierre Garcon against the New Orleans Saints in Washington’s season opener.
As D.C. Sports Bog astutely points out, adidas was a bit slow on the uptake on this one, as several other versions of a Griffining t-shirt are already available, including one that salutes Griffining for sale at the Redskins team store. But hey, if there’s a dollar or two or a million to be made, companies like adidas and those of their ilk are sure to capitalize on them.
