If you don’t know who Richard Sherman is yet, that’s only because you haven’t been listening. The mercurial and uber-talented Seattle Seahawks corner has never been afraid to speak his mind, and those outbursts have proven to be pure blogosphere gold.
On Thursday, Sherman appeared on ESPN’s First Take, and he used the opportunity to tell analyst Skip Bayless exactly what millions of sports fans nationwide would love to say to the opinionated and generally negative Bayless.
Sherman told him things like “I’m better at life than you”, among several other witty remarks. While we here at Gamedayr were far too busy ROTFLing, tons of folks took to Twitter to share their opinions on the totally unexpected piece of television wonder.
First, a short snippet of a hostile moment of the interview:
Now, some of the very best reactions we found:
