And fans — people who he’d never met, who already make him rich through tickets and merchandise purchases and television viewing and whatnot — bought him a bunch of stuff!
Most galling of all? American football fans have bought Robert Griffin III and his future wife exactly ZERO of the eight NewWave Premium Platinum 5-Piece Place Settings that they’re hoping for.
