richard sherman

As far as gregarious athletes go, Richard Sherman has to rank near the top of the list. He always speaks his mind and is generally cordial with the media, often getting on the right side of many reporters.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone then that he showed up to a press conference in full “Harry Potter” regalia. The Seahawks cornerback has become one of the best entertainers in the league, so this is right up his alley.

You have to love that he even has a wand to go with it all. That is dedication to the costume. He could have gone about it half-baked, but he didn’t cut any corners here.

This isn’t just someone who thinks it would be fun to dress as a wizard. He even goes as far to say that he was sorted into Gryffindor. Placing Sherman into a house would be awfully tough; some may see him as a Slytherin, but deep down Gryffindor is likely the right choice.

Each year, as more and more athletes dress up for Halloween, we get to see the more creative side of these players, which gives us a slight peek behind the curtain of their lives. These aren’t moments we see often, making it all the more fun when the public gets to see this side of athletes.
