Robert Griffin III bolts Fiesta Bowl broadcast after announcing his wife was in labor

The Fiesta Bowl was one of the wildest bowl games in history.

It also provided a surreal moment on the field during one of ESPN’s megacasts.

Robert Griffin III was at work with his colleagues when he took a call on his cell phone.

While his teammates waited intently, Griffin finally told everyone he had to go because his wife had gone into labor.

Griffin sprinted off the field — he was a track star as well as a Heisman winner at Baylor.

The baby was arriving early as hours earlier Griffin tweeted he and his wife were expecting a daughter in three weeks.
