Robert Griffin III abruptly exited the College Football Playoff broadcast on Saturday after receiving news that his wife was in  labor.

Griffin III is seen sprinting off the set of the Michigan and TCU broadcast after being told by somebody over the phone that his wife was on the brink of delivering his newborn.

This moment seems like it was scripted from a movie. To receive this sort of news live on television is wild to me.

RGIII wrote on Twitter that he flew home to be with his wife but that the baby was not ready to be delivered yet. He said even though it was a false alarm, “GOD KNEW where I needed to be” in reference to him being at home with his pregnant wife.

If I learned anything in 2022, it’s how ELECTRIC RGIII is on television. It seems as if he says or does something controversial, yet hilarious, every single time he’s in front of a camera.

RGIII is a national treasure. There is nobody quite like him in the public eye.  He’s truly one of the funniest broadcasters there is in this world. Him sprinting off the set Saturday just adds to his catalog of memorable television moments.
