Everybody in the world has an opinion about Richard Sherman’s weird post-game interview with Erin Andrews minutes after he sent the Seahawks to the Super Bowl with a sensational leaping play to knock away a potential touchdown pass to Michael Crabtree.
Was Sherman just being funny in a pro wrestling way or was his tirade classless and an insult to good sportsmanship?
This is a good time to bring in the baseball players, who we know are very sensitive to things like guys showing up other guys, and guys celebrating and guys being too demonstrative.
Pitchers especially are sensitive to this kind of stuff, it seems. Of course in baseball pitchers have a chance to mete out their own justice to over-demonstrative opponents. They just buzz a guy’s tower if they don’t like his antics.
And that’s exactly what Justin Verlander says he would do to Richard Sherman if he pulled that kind of stuff in baseball.
So Russell is a class act! Sherman on the other hand…. If he played baseball would get a high and tight fastball.

So, a warning to Richard Sherman. If you ever become a baseball player, don’t get crazy in post game interviews or Justin Verlander will put one in your earhole.
