When you're a parent, your kid's opinions are important. Duh. When you're Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, they're career-influencing. Sherman claims his 20-month son, Rayden, really wanted him to go to a press conference on Wednesday dressed as Harry Potter for Halloween. So that's what he did.
In front of a room of reporters, Sherman discussed his post-game thoughts in a wizard cape, pointing at different people with his wooden wand, and walking onto the platform playing the Harry Potter theme on his phone.
"This is a serious occasion. It's Halloween," Sherman said. "My son told me he wanted me to wear something, so it's happening."
Discussing the Seahawks' game against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, which resulted in a 6-6 outcome after overtime, he admitted that football is more difficult than Quidditch. "Five quarters of football is pretty tough, but Quidditch, you know, the Beaters, the Chasers, trying to find the Golden Snitch like that, that's tough," he said. "Five quarters of football though, in the elements, I'd say that'll take the cake."
Of the costume: "When you're a wizard, like we are out here, sometimes you have to show it to the Muggles out in the world."
