IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT: Richard Sherman postgame interview!!!

After making a fantastic play that led to a NFC championship-winning interception on what could have been a game-winning 49ers touchdown, Richard Sherman ran over to dejected San Francisco wide receiver Michael Crabtree. Like a modern-day Eddie Haskell, the Seahawks corner offered his hand to Crabtree. For some, it would have been a classy move of respect. For Sherman, it was the ultimate in postgame taunting on the biggest stage in sports.
Sherman promptly got shoved in the face, just like he deserved.
Lest anyone doubt the motive behind Sherman’s handshake, the All-Pro corner made his feelings clear in a postgame interview with Erin Andrews.

“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. [...] Don’t you open your mouth about the best or I’m gonna shut it for you real quick.”
 
Major, major props to Andrews, whose perfectly-timed “who was talking about you” question will go down as the interview question of the year.
It’s been a long time since Super Bowl week has had a villain. Richard Sherman is going to be all too happy to play that role.
