Robert Griffin III's cast sold for $1522 to a podiatry student
Robert Griffin III's foot cast from last season has been auctioned off for charity, with the winning bid of $1,522 coming from a podiatry student and diehard Redskins fan named Rich Bruno.
Bruno says that when Griffin went down with a dislocated ankle last season he was inconsolable at first but then realized it was a perfect meeting of his two favorite things, according to The Washington Post.
“All of my loves in life had combined into a singular moment,” he wrote on Facebook. “I squealed like a school girl thinking about how one day, maybe I could be that specialist a player sees.”
The Redskins super fan says he will be selling off some of his other memorabilia to pay for the cast. And as for the possibility that his new prized possession may be a little rank, Bruno tells the Post that is part of the appeal.
“The worse it smells, the happier I am, because that makes it more unique. Some people have RGIII game-worn jerseys, and they’re stained or whatever. I might have his foot stink. That’s special to me.”
If you are going to be a podiatrist, you are not going to be afraid of a little "foot stink."
