Richard Sherman Was Dressed As Harry Potter At A Conference For An Adorable Reason!
Richard Sherman surprised Seahawks fans when he arrived at his Wednesday press-conference dressed in full Harry Potter attire.
The cornerback was wearing the famous Hogwarts robe, glasses and even had a magic wand to go with it. He explained to the reporters at the press meet that his son had asked him to dress up for Halloween, and he gladly obliged. He compared playing three quarters of football to a game of Quidditch.
Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman arrived at his usual Wednesday media session in full Harry Potter regalia, Gryffindor robes, wand, and circle glasses included. “Five quarters of football is pretty tough, but Quidditch — the beaters, the chasers, trying to find the golden snitch, things like that — that’s tough,” he said.
“Five quarters of football, though, in the elements, I’d say that’d take the cake.” “When you’re a wizard like we are out here, sometimes you have to show it to the Muggles out in the world,” Sherman joked when asked about his attire. “We’ve got a lot of wizards — my son’s a wizard, Earl Thomas does some magical things, Michael Bennett is Black Santa but he’s also a wizard — so you know, you just have a good time.”
Sherman has been a fan of Harry Potter for a long time. His fandom is well-documented and dates back to his youth. He’s read the books and he’s seen the movies as well. They even asked him about the new ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ book, which didn’t quite live up to the hype. He also accused the NFL of taking the fun out of the game saying, “If the NFL had its way, we would all be robots.”
“Antonio Brown can’t twerk after a touchdown because it’s sexually suggestive,” he wrote. “But every Sunday, on most sidelines, there are rows of cheerleaders doing the same types of moves to entertain the crowd.” “Part of the problem is that players are being told to ‘act like they’ve been there’ by a group of people who have never been there themselves,” Sherman said.
