RGIII Meets Sandwich, Skateboard And TV Icons At The White House

Robert Griffin III, Pierre Garçon, Ryan Kerrigan and Stephen Bowen all attended an annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House on Monday.

The players did not get to spend time with Barack Obama, but they did meet the First Lady and a smattering of random celebrities such as Jared the Subway guy, who probably gave RGIII the secret Subway Illuminati handshake before challenging the quarterback to a push-up contest.

Tony Hawk was there. I think more people have played video games as Tony Hawk than RGIII. How many people like that do you think Griffin III meets like that?

Rocsi Diaz of “Entertainment Tonight” and “106 & Park” fame posed for a picture with the quarterback.

Dr. Oz snatched a group shout with all the Redskins and Doug. E. Fresh. I like to think this shot was followed by the doctor rap battling the Redskins behind a Fresh beatbox.

Griffin III snapped a selfie with Indianpolis Colts tight end Dwayne Allen…

Who also pulled off a textbook photobomb.

Washington Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez greeted the Redskins.

Preschool rock stars The Ohmies posed with Griffin III.

Actor Jeffrey Wright, a vocal Redskins supporter and an excellent Muddy Waters mimic, got a shot with the quarterback.

As did Clicky the internet safety robot.

Pierre Garçon flashed his million-dollar smile… 

And pointed out Griffin III wore his cleats inside the White House, which seems like a place you would look suspicious running and cutting.
