I’ve always been a big fan of Richard Sherman, actually… he gives amazing interviews, too.

A little illustrative video of this:

He comes from the Rorschach school of running backs: “None of you seem to understand: You think you’re going to hit me, actually I’m going to hit you”

I was really happy about the publicity that his comments got about owners funding their own damn stadiums. I can’t imagine the owners were too happy about that, so good on him.

He’s a treasure… his reaction to being called a “thug” was on point… Also, this was adorable.


#9

“I’m here so I won’t get fined.”

If you want a picture of the future, imagine Marshawn Lynch running through a human face, over and over and over and over and over and over.

Because everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.

Marshawn is probably my favorite player of all-time. Off the field, he is extremely generous. His foundation does great things in his beloved hometown of Oakland. On the field, he was probably the hardest back to bring down since Jim Brown. His punishing style would leave defenders battered, and their will broken. So…he’s right.

I want to see this guy on Celebrity Jeopardy!

In the bag of tricks I have to put a smile on my face or lighten my mood, I have a few from Marshawn.

and

The Skittle presser
This one is a lot funnier if you have followed all the press conference shenanigans by the NFL, sports media, and Marshawn leading up to it.

Marshawn is a tremendous athlete, one of the best RBs to hit the field, and a beautiful forthright soul.

Roll on Beastmode.
