Blake Griffin at The Cage

Posted on: June 24th, 2009 at 8:21 am by

Early yesterday afternoon, Sooner superstar Blake Griffin was spotted at the Cage near West Fourth Street. Dressed in a Subway jersey and towering above all other players on the court, his presence appeared to be little more than a public relations stunt to announce this most recent endorsement. Indeed, in his own words:

Glad to be a part of the subway family. Tomorrow [6/23] at west 4th street courts i will be playing someone in horse come check it out.

Join me Noon tomorrow [6/23] at the Cage in NYC. Playing a game of S-U-B-W-A-Y, a la H-O-R-S-E with Jared, I’ll pick 1 person to play with me.

The event was filmed, so it will probably end up in some commercial or viral video. How many Five-Dollar Footlongs can this man consume? Place your bets!
