No, not "Never get high on your own supply."  The one that says You shall have no other gods before me!  And what is this that I see?  Many of you worshiping a new god: Robert Griffin III.  Who some of you call RG3.  Which is moronic.  He has a perfectly good name for a god; Griffin.  Instead you insist on referring to him by a name that is reminiscent of a chess maneuver or a spot on the board in a game of Battleship.  Though I shouldn't be surprised at the name from a group of people who root for a team with a name that even the ancients would have considered less than culturally sensitive.  But, I digress, what could be more regal than a lion with wings?  Alright, a lion with wings, lasers and a sweet sound system.  But you'd agree that a lion with wings is pretty cool.  Toss on a helmet and pads, and you've really got something.  But even so, should he be worshiped before me?  I hardly think so.  Yes, he beat the Saints, but are saints really noted for their toughness?  Hardly.  They're more noted for their martyrdom.  And yes he hurdles . . . hurdles in single bounds.  But they're not very high, are they?  Though I am coming off as too much of a wet blanket.  I am hardly the type to argue for moderation amidst the throes of ecstasy.  Enjoy Cloud 9 while you're on it.  Or in this case, Cloud #10.  And don't worry, your old buddy Leon will be there to catch you if you fly too close to the sun.
