Robert Griffin III Takes in U.S.-Brazil Soccer Match

While the Washington Wizards were crestfallen over their third overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Washington Redskins' second overall pick, quarterback Robert Griffin III, was at FedEx Field for what is likely to be one of his rare appearances there as a spectator (hopefully).

Griffin attended the U.S./Brazil friendly Wednesday, and while there was not much to cheer about (Brazil decimated the U.S., 4-1), RGIII seemed to have a great time.

Once Griffin received his customized kit, he took the field, watching from the sidelines and making the rounds with the USMNT.
