Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman stole the show in more ways then one during the NFC Championship game. Aside from making a big play to seal the win, Sherman’s post-game interview with Erin Andrews was the talk of the game. A lot of people said he needed to show some class while others enjoyed him breaking free of the typical cliches athletes use.
And it was all perfectly summed up in this cartoon:

Reporters seemed to echo this after the game as well.

Anyone bothered by Richard Sherman tonight has never sat through a one-game-at-a-time cliche fest. Speak your mind, Richard.

I appreciate Richard Sherman’s honesty. Everyone complaining can have all the cliches these guys try to give you. I’ll take THAT instead.
