Last week marked the first time that heavily touted rookie quarterback, Robert Griffin III (RG3 for short), played in an NFL game. Griffin surpassed expectation and led the Redskins to a 40-32 win over a heavily favored New Orleans squad.
RG3 scored his first touchdown pass with three minutes left in the first quarter. During the throw he was knocked down and after the touchdown the camera showed him raising his hands in celebration. This pose has paved the way to an internet craze known as “Griffining” which is less christian than Tebowing and more celebratory than Romoing. It also is less annoying than Twilighting but not as erotic as 50ShadesofGreysing.
