Redskins’ RG3 reflects on early accomplishments
“There’s no moral victories, but we walked out of the game feeling that we won the game, because we did dominate the game. We should have won the game,” Griffin said. “We’re upset that we lost, but we don’t hang our heads saying, `Man, we went out there and got our butt whipped.’”
Griffin took some time away from football Tuesday to indulge a couple of passions. He was trying out the soon-to-be-released Assassin’s Creed III video game, and the game’s publisher is featuring him in a painting that’s being auctioned off to benefit Rock the Vote.
“I grew up in the military,” he said. “I’ve lived that life. I know that our soldiers are out there fighting for our right to vote and they’re out there fighting for other countries’ rights to vote. … Guys have been dying for it, and we have to go out and exercise it.”
Griffin is registered in his home state of Texas. He has met President Barack Obama and has challenged the commander in chief to a basketball game, but he declined to state his own political beliefs, saying that race, religion and politics are “three things you don’t talk about.”
He will talk video games, which he says work better as an offseason hobby.
“It’s easier to watch a movie than it is to play a video game during the season, just because you can fall asleep on the movie,” Griffin said. “Usually when you play a video game and you get into it, you want to keep playing. That kind of can hurt you during the football season.”
