NFL or WWE?

Great game yesterday between the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers…..especially since I’m a huge Seattle fan.  I must have aged five years watching the teams slug it out.

Today the discussion in the media and on all the social networking sites is…. Richard Sherman.  Say what you want about Sherman’s over the top trash talking but his bravado is getting more people hyped about the Superbowl.   As a long time fan of professional wrasslin’, his interviews remind me of many a cocky, self absorbed, “heel” looking straight into the camera and calling out the all-American clean cut “baby face” hero.  Is he related to Booker T?  Maybe it’s just me but I’d rather have an honest reaction like Sherman’s then the typical canned, politically correct, sound clips that star athletes are expected to say and have been saying since they were stars in high school.

That being said I hope he nevah “batchi” himself.  And maybe twenty years from now if he does have a long hall of fame career and becomes an NFL analyst like Deion Sanders, the public will look back on yesterday’s interviews and laugh.

Should be a great Superbowl!  Good luck to the Denver Broncos……NOT!  Legion of Boom gonna shut Manning down if ya smellllllllll….what the Hawks are cookin’!
