Following the National Football Conference (NFC) Championship game between the Seahawks and the 49ers, Erin Andrews ran into a surprising and uncomfortable interview with Seattle’s cornerback Richard Sherman, who just minutes ago had made the game winning tip that lead to an interception. Obviously raging with excitement about the play, Sherman exclaimed to the world, “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!” After many reactions around the sports world, Sherman apologized on camera for his boast, specifically for calling out another player in Michael Crabtree. He told ESPN’s Ed Werder, “I apologize for attacking an individual and taking the attention away from the fantastic game by my teammates.” It was nice to see a guy with such a great story — coming out of Compton, playing football at Stanford, and becoming the best corner in the NFL — taking responsibility for his uncalled for postgame antic.
