Richard Sherman Turns Into Booker T

It was like something out of an old WCW or WWF/WWE Monday Night Raw. Richard Sherman had just broken up a pass to seal the NFC Championship for the Seattle Seahawks. He starts talking smack to Michael Crabtree of the 49ers, as the two presumably don't like each other much. Erin Andrews goes over for a post-game interview and Sherman morphs into former pro wrestler Booker T, as Andrews looks like she just stumbled into the middle of Compton circa 1992 while Sherman angrily rips Crabtree.


It will go down as one of the most memorable post-game interviews ever. It's also safe to say not many neutral fans may be cheering for the Seahawks to beat the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII from Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. Sherman was just caught up in the heat of the moment though in the few minutes after his clash with Crabtree. Anyone else would have been just as fired up with their adrenaline still pumping.

The Broncos beat the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship. Patriots coach Bill Belichick called Wes Welker's block on Aqib Talib "one of the worst plays I've seen" and "deliberate". Maybe so, but the hit looked technically legal by NFL rule though, it happened while the ball was in play right nearby, not after it was already gone. By the way, it was also deliberate to spy on opponents to gain an advantage in the Super Bowl. Funny that the Patriots haven't won a Super Bowl since getting caught with Spygate, basically becoming the 1990s Buffalo Bills since then.
