Erin Andrews stood her ground.
She asked about the final defensive play for the Seattle Seahawks and the outspoken cornerback gave her the postgame interview of interviews.
Andrews kept composure - with a funny look on her face - as Sherman screamed how good he is, but then she asked the simple question, 'Who was talking about you?"
I had no problems with what Sherman said. He made the play that won the game for Seattle 23-17 over San Francisco on Sunday.
And his comment came minutes later. Who wouldn't be fired up about being responsible for going to the Super Bowl?
A friend of mine said following the comments, “Sherman has really made a name for himself in the last 10 minutes. Any bets on how little he's liked by older people and how much younger people don't care either way?”
Sherman's is a refreshing comment in a world of professional sports where the answer is usually, “We played hard. Gave it 110 percent. There’s no ‘I’ in team.”
Not a comment you want your kids making, but at least he had some kind of excuse - San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree was, apparently, talking trash before the game to him.
But, before that happens, we have to wait two weeks.
And it’s going to be a long two weeks.
