Richard Sherman certainly seems like a man who enjoys the spotlight, but sometimes that spotlight can get a little too bright even for Richard Sherman.
Sometimes Richard Sherman wishes he could wind back the clock to those care-free days before his on-air tirade when nobody knew who he was (via Fox Sports).
“It’s difficult at times. It’s more frustrating at times,” the star cornerback says about that anonymity being gone. “When you’re at dinner with your family or you’re just trying to be out hanging out on vacation and you can’t just sit there and sit on the boat without people driving up to the boat, constantly trying to take pictures and then them calling you rude because you say you just want to relax and be on vacation for a second.
“It gets to be a bit much when you lose your personal time.”
Sherman says that now when he wants to escape he locks himself in with his video games for a few hours and forgets all about the world outside.
“I really put time in it, I focus on it. I cut my phone off. Nobody comes and bothers me when I play my games,” Sherman said. “It allows you to clear your head for a while, and when it’s time to get back to work it’s time to get back to work.”
What am I doing, Richard Sherman? I’m playing the world’s smallest violin for you. Really, my heart aches for you, Richard Sherman.
I’ll keep you in my thoughts the next time I’m having dinner and no one is bothering me.
