D.C. Radio Station Changes Name to Honor Robert Griffin III

How crazy are they about Robert Griffin III in the Washington, D.C., area? We already know that RG3 tattoos exist and that they've remixed a Christmas carol just for him, but with Griffin recovering from major knee surgery, one local radio station has raised the stakes. 

WPGC 95.5, "D.C.'s home of at least 18 jams in a row," has changed its call letters to support Griffin during his rehab. No word on if this is permanent or even technically official, but 95.5 on your FM dial is now WRG3.

At the very least, a little extra publicity has been gained, especially since the new name apparently shows up on displays across the district. 

Griffin underwent surgery to repair tears to his LCL and ACL on Wednesday morning. The famed Dr. James Andrews performed the procedure, which he said was successful. The recovery time is expected to span anywhere between six and 12 months and the regular-season opener is eight months away, so he'll surely take any support he can get.
