Robert Griffin III Beat 2 Defending Champs In 24 Hours

What did you do with your Monday and Tuesday nights?

1. Robert Griffin III continues to lead the Washington Redskins to relevance. They even have a shot at their first playoff appearance since 2007 if they can get past the defending Super Bowl Champion New York Giants.

2. So in a nationally televised must-win Monday Night Football game against the Giants, RGIII stepped up.

3. He consistently ran all over the defending champs, and this fourth-quarter touchdown was the difference in a 17-16 win.

5. RGIII’s so magical that even his reckless fumbles…

6. …get picked up and run the rest of the way into the end zone by teammates.

7. Anyway, DC sports fans weren’t expecting a second great night, because on Tuesday their Wizards were up against the defending NBA Champion Miami Heat. The Wizards had the league’s worst record (1-13), while the Heat have a guy who does this:

8. So Washington gets steamrolled in sports like usual, right? Not so fast. Facing four perennial All-Stars, somehow the Wizards looked good.

9. Like, really good.

10. As in “knock down threes over Dwyane Wade to beat the defending champs” good.

11. How did the Wizards magically gain this kind of swagger? There can only be one explanation…

12. Of course! RGIII was AT THE GAME, his magic rubbed off, and he’s now beaten two defending champions in 24 hours.

And don’t forget the April 26th Heat-Wizards game from last season. RGIII attended, they put his face on the Jumbotron, and it powered the Wizards to a 34-point blowout win.

13. “Crap” is right, Miami Heat team owner Micky Arison. Better make sure Robert’s not interested in seeing the NBA Playoffs live.
