This afternoon on “Grant and Danny” on CBS Radio’s 106.7 The Fan in Washington, D.C., there was a segement centered around prom. The hosts were taking calls from people who were too nervous to ask someone else to prom, so they wanted to help out.
Lexi called up (who sounded every bit of 17 and nervous) and needed help from the station to ask Jack to prom. Unbeknownst to Lexi, the hosts had Robert Griffin III on the line waiting to assist.
Once Lexi got over the shock of RG3 being on the line, she gave him some quick pointers on what she wanted him to say to Jack. The station then got Jack on the line and the following ensued:
“Alright, Jack. This is Robert Griffin III, in case you were wondering,” RGIII smoothly introduced himself. “My friend Lexi, she’s a great girl, but she was a little shy. She wanted to ask you to prom, man. So, here I am as her personal prom-asker — Will you go to prom with her, man?”
Jack didn’t hesitate.
“Lexi, I would love to be your date to prom,” he answered.
Griffin offered up a few prom night tips — from dancing to dinner — and not surprisingly dished out some advice on his favorite fashion accessory.
Listen to the actual radio exchange here. Will this win back some of RG3’s naysayers? Can’t guarantee that, but this was decent of him to do.
