Count Bryce Harper as the latest member of the Robert Griffin III fan club.

Griffin’s socks have been a part of his identity since his college days. He became known for wearing cartoon socks during all occasions — press conferences, the Heisman Trophy ceremony, and the NFL draft — and adidas has made him a custom line of socks.
The cool thing about the story is that even though Harper is a superstar in his sport, he’s still acting like your typical 20-year-old football fan when it comes to RG3.
