Robert Griffin III and his fiance are just like many other soon-to-be-married couples in that they registered online for their wedding gifts.

Unlike those other couples, however, this one just happens to have the superstar quarterback of the Washington Redskins as the groom. Some of his crafty fans discovered the registry of Griffin and Rebecca Liddicoat on the Bed, Bath & Beyond website and decided to send some pre-wedding gifts -- lots and lots of them.

Check out the photo RG3 posted on whosay of himself in front of a big ol' pile of boxes from BB&B.

Most of the already-purchased items on the list are of the more inexpensive variety as far as wedding gifts are concerned, such as napkins ($1.99 each), dish cloths ($4.99) and a variety of kitchen utensils (a $7.99 vegetable peeler, for example) -- although some people (quite possibly not fans but some of the quarterback's wealthier friends) have purchased a pair of $439.99 outdoor seating sets and a $399.99 mixer for the couple.

Griffin is going into the second year of his guaranteed $21-million rookie contract and stands to make quite a bit more in salary and endorsements throughout his career. Nonetheless, some fans decided to use this as a way of showing their appreciation for the quarterback who gave his all (he is now rehabilitating from January knee surgery) to get their team back into the playoffs.

Plus isn't it kind of fun just picturing your idol and his wife making a fruit salad together with the melon baller you gave them?

But apparently others weren't too happy about an ultra-wealthy star registering for gifts in the first place. Griffin had this response for them:

And this:

But just in case you are a non-hater who wants to send along a little something to the happy couple, fear not. There is still plenty remaining on their wish list -- including a $499.99 non-stick cookware set and a bunch of $7.99 hand towels and washcloths.

Happy shopping (or happy hating)!
