If you think Redskins fans are the only Washingtonians excited about the arrival of Robert Griffin III, you may want to check with the new inhabitants of RFK Stadium.
The fine folks at Major League Soccer’s D.C. United put together a welcome video for Griffin III, featuring the 2011 Golden Boot scoring champion, Dwayne De Rosario. In the video, De Rosario holds up an authentic D.C. United game jersey with “Griffin III” printed on the back.
On Sunday after rookie mini-camp practice, Griffin III was given that jersey as a housewarming gift, and was thrilled to see his preferred name and draft number. Is it any coincidence that in soccer, the No. 10 is always the most important player on the pitch?
I think not.
Thanks to D.C. United for the kind gesture, and enjoy the welcome video from De Rosario, below:
