Halloween started a few days early in Seattle.
Richard Sherman decided, well his son decided for him, to get into the holiday spirit a little early. He wore a Harry Potter outfit to his press conference, complete with what appeared to be a magic wand, via The Seattle News Tribune’s Gregg Bell.
“My son told me that he wanted me to wear something,” Sherman said to the media. “So this happened.”
It appeared that it didn’t take his son that much time to convince him because he appeared excited to appear before the media in his special garb.
“This was my first and second choice,” Sherman said to the media. “I had a little bit more to the get up but, ya know, it is what it is.”
The reporters had a lot of fun with it as well. One even asked him what is harder, playing five quarters of football or a game of quidditch. Sherman had to admit that the overtime game at University of Phoenix Stadium against the Arizona Cardinals was more difficult.
This is not the first time Sherman has let it be known that he is a huge Harry Potter fan. In a New York Times profile in 2014 he talked about reading all of the books and going to midnight screenings of the movies.
