Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was simultaneously the hero and villain of the NFC Championship game. His incredible pass defense sealed the win for the Seahawks and a trip to the Super Bowl to face the Denver Broncos. Unfortunately, his incredible play was overshadowed by his mouth during a post-game interview with FOX reporter Erin Andrews.
A transcript of the interview via BuzzFeed:
– [Sherman:] “Well, I’m the best corner in the game! When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that’s the result you gonna get! Don’t you EVER talk about me.”
– [Andrews:] Who was talking about you?
– [Sherman:]“Crabtree. Don’t you open your mouth about the best. Or I’m gonna shut it for you real quick. L-O-B.”
Still, it is on to the Super Bowl.
Remember that Denver area liquor store that had a sign that read “Tom Brady drinks appletinis” before the Broncos played the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game? Well they’re back and this time they’re taking aim at Sherman with a sign that reads “Richard Sherman drinks Mickey’s Big Mouth.” It is an obvious shot at Sherman’s mouth.
