Robert Griffin III found out his wife is in labor during the Fiesta Bowl
He was part of a replacement broadcast for Robert Griffin III Fiesta Bowl between No. 3 TCU and No. 2 Michigan, but had to cut it early.
The former Washington quarterback took a phone call at the end of the third quarteralthough it became an instant classic before everyone’s eyes.
His partners on “The Pat McAfee Show” were clearly confused at first that he had his headphones off and was on the phone; one of them asked “what are you doing? we are in the middle of a game”.
“Alright guys. Gotta go,” RG3 said pointedly.
One of his partners was shocked.
– To the toilet? someone answered.
Griffin then came clean, telling his team that his wife was in labor.
His broadcast partners congratulated him, and he sprinted into the tunnel and out of sight.
An ESPN camera also gave chase.
He is Griffin’s fourth child, and third with his wife Grete.
Griffin joined ESPN in August 2021 after spending eight seasons in the NFL: four with Washington, one with the Cleveland Browns and three with the Baltimore Ravens.
TCU won, 51-45To make it the biggest upset in College Football Playoff history, they were eight-point underdogs.
RG3 missed the finish, but adding him to the family is a nice consolation prize.
