WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – Robert Griffin III celebrates his 24th birthday.

In an age in which Retweeting birthday shoutouts is the equivalent of thanking your offensive lineman after a game-winning drive, what better way to bring in your 24th year on earth than doing exactly that?

Here’s a list of ‘Happy Birthday’ tweets RGIII has Retweeted thus far, to give you a better idea of how to appear on the Redskins’ franchise quarterback’s Twitter timeline, for all his 1.12 million followers to see.

If you’re DeAngelo Hall, and throw out a sports pop culture reference which can be perceived as mocking the Dallas Cowboys, you’ve got a great shot.

You can be a former teammate, like Jordan Bernstine.

Or perhaps you could take the angle of this fan, who Picstitched his way into the quarterback’s heart, with four photos chronicling the rise and fall of Griffin, and subsequent rise again.

A standard Happy Birthday could do it, so long as its accompanied by one of your favorite Robert Griffin III motivational quotes.

Maybe you’re just a loyal, diehard fan who’s in it for the long haul, and have a photo illustrating as such.

You can also be a reporter, who happens to share the same month of birth and/or astrological sign.

Or send RGIII a gift (actually, you better not — for his sake).

Perhaps you’re in possession of a professional football team’s Twitter account.

Photoshop expert, NFL?

Or just give it the old college try, and be a barbecue restaurant from Waco, Texas.
