welcome to the washington area nissan dealer's sports xtra. >> you know, i just wish there was something to talk about in sports today. >> these are the type of debates we have in the sports department. what do you lead with?
11:46 pm
do you go with rg3 or the caps or bryce harper? here's what we're going to do. we're going to compromise. we're going to go with the young phenom. to be 19 again, barely out of high school and have the world at your feet. for bryce harper, it's the baseball world. tonight at fame dodgers stadium, he said, hello world. >> to the plate, making his major league debut. >> booed at dodgers stadium. after the boos, there's his first at bat. a dribble back to the box. shake off the helmet and show you a little. leek it? all right, here we go. to the 7th. history in the making. there it is. his first ever major league hit on a 3-2 pitch. takes off the helmet. that's a standup double and what do you know?
11:47 pm
his first hit goes for extra bases. he's one for three on the night. right now the nats and dodgers are tied up at 1 in the 8th inning. congratulations bryce harper. the o's beat the a's tonight. today began the second series of your second season for your washington capitals. if you recall, they lost game one versus boston and managed to win that series. so this could be just another case of history repeating. versus the rangers, scoreless in the second, but trouble behind the net. he was so good versus boston. a little shaky today. gets the goal right there, 1-0 blue shirts. but the caps would respond just before the end of the period. and gets that one to go. he beats hendrik lundquist. going into the third period, but in that third, it's the rookie, not even 21 years old. six games into his nhl career and chris arrived, he gets that one. the rangers score another goal
11:48 pm
90 seconds later and a 1-1 tie becomes a 3-1 new york victory in game one. how about d.c. united hosting houston. here comes chris. i'm just going to say this. the united undefeated since he came on the morning show with me. that's a great pass to mike. 1-0 black and red. second half, it's dwayne and this is why he's such a good scorer. gets that one to the back of the net. 2-1d.c. houston would tie it up at 2 and watch santos again. somehow going to get the high redirect right there and d.c. united wins it 3-2. they win their unbeaten streak to seven straight games. impressive. today it began for real for redskins fans. their chance to meet and greet the man they hope will be the savior at the quarterback position for the better part of the next decade. no pressure for robert griffin, iii, right? rg3 meeting the d.c. media for the furs time. yes, he will be wearing number
11:49 pm
10. just like he was wearing at baylor. he said the last 48 hours have been a whirlwind. he's eager for what will happen. that's all in the past. >> you know, try not to take the weight of the past 20 years on my own shoulders. realize there are other guys on this team that can help us be successful. i don't have to do everything. all these guys are very talented. many all americans. all conference players. so everybody on this team is here for a reason, because they want to win and they are good at what they do. i don't have to do everything by myself and just be myself, go out, work hard, learn the offense, continue to do the things that help me be successful as an individual and help build that through the team, with the quality i can help add to a team. >> he is very fast. and he was met by thousands of adoring fans that were chants of rg3 that rained down. the new face of the franchise,
11:50 pm
if you will. and not knowing they would be this great, he did anticipate it to be a good day. he said the skins told him the same thing all along. >> you know, i didn't hear anything much different other than it's official, you know, i'm a washington redskin. they are excited about that, happy to have me as part of the organization. and they are relying on me. that's what dan schneider told me. they are relying on me and i like to be relied on, because i feel like i can help in any way possible. >> they are going to rely on him big time. there were other people taking the strappy side for robert griffin, iii. this is a red scratcher to a lot of people, because he took rg3, you think another quarterback. that will be debated for a while. alfred morris, a runningback. they also added one more offensive lineman in the sixth round and two cornerbacks in the seventh round. so again, that kirk cousins pick is the one that is a bit
11:51 pm
puzzling. we don't anticipate this to be competition for rg3, but a compliment. god for bid he gets hurt, they have another rookie they like. but it was definitely a head scratcher. >> i was listening to the radio and a couple guys are angry. >> it is like rg3 day today and you ruffle the feathers a little by drafting curt cousins, but he was a good value pick. it just wasn't necessarily a need pick after taking rg3. >> real quick question here. it's loaded. do you think this kid can have an um pact on the redskins first season? >> he better. because if he doesn't, that's all the pressure. that's what we're talking about. he can handle it. he seems to handle it well. he's calm, poised, and says all the right things. he just is very thoughtful. i think he's going to be the type of guy that can handle the pressure that will come this year. >> let's hope. >> he gives us hope.
11:52 pm
>> he does. all right, thanks. so, two days after becoming a redskin, rg3 merchandise is a big seller. at the team store, people couldn't wait to get their hands on a jersey with his name and number on the back. john hanrahan has the story from fedex field. >> reporter: so, are redskins fans excited about the fourth coming arrival of robert griffin iii? oh yeah. >> i'm not taking mine off today. >> there was a steady stream of customers throughout the day in and out of the fan store at fedex field. the single hottest item, rg3 jerseys. william of mitchellville had a fistful of rg3's. >> six. two adults and four for my boys. for my kids. total of six. i can't go home empty handed. i can't get one and not get all. >> college student, daniel harrell picked out a griffin jersey. >> showing support.
11:53 pm
we are hoping he's going to do good for the team. us die hards have been waiting a long time for a good season. so we're really excited. >> reporter: who is paying for the shirt? >> mom, because she loves me. >> reporter: official nfl merchandise is pricey. the rg3 jerseys are $115 for regular sizes and $130 for larger sizes. but the selection by the redskins of robert griffin, iii, is creating real excitement. >> he has a nice charisma. he's a good hard worker. his family background is great. he is perfect for us, for the offense. i'm glad they jumped and got him. >> historically, first year out of college quarterbacks don't often do all that great. should fans expect everything this first year? >> well you know, i said that too until when cam newton got
11:54 pm
drafted. he did very well. so you know, anything is possible. >> at the redskins store at fedex field, john hanrahan, fox 5 news. a dream come true for students in indiana. how prom night helped heal the wounds after a nightmare of a twister tore down their school. back after this. [ banker ] mike and brenda found a house that they really wanted.
11:55 pm
11:56 pm
it was in my sister's neighborhood. i told you it was perfect for you guys. literally across the street from her sister. [ banker ] but someone else bought it before they could get their offer together. we really missed a great opportunity -- dodged a bullet there. [ banker ] so we talked to them about the wells fargo priority buyer preapproval. it lets people know that you are a serious buyer because you've been credit-approved. we got everything in order so that we can move on the next place we found. which was clear on the other side of town. [ male announcer ] wells fargo. with you when you're ready to move.

11:58 pm
having a good time. >> reporter: this is especially a night they don't want to forget. >> i didn't think at first they were going to pull it off, but this is even better than all the past proms. >> reporter: to say these students have been through a lot is an understatement. two months ago, an ef4 tornado stole their school. caught on surveillance video when the tornado ripped through. the community was also hit hard. >> none of us have had anything like this happen, and it's a big deal. a lot of these kids lost their homes. >> reporter: hundreds of students got a chance to have a normal part of their school year. >> dance and have some fun. >> reporter: everything here at prom was donated for the students to have a great night, which they say they are grateful for. the community played a major part in henryville's prom. they donated their facility to use to make the night possible. >> it was wonderful to have all the outreach of communities
