It was the post-game interview that became bigger than the game itself when Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman delivered a verbal smackdown to San Francisco 49ers wide reciever Michael Crabtree.
For those who have been off the internet for the past 24 hours, here’s how it went down: the 49ers arrived in Seattle to challenge the Seahawks to a spot in the Super Bowl to face the red-hot Denver Broncos. The game was tight and down to the very last play, with a 49ers pass to the end zone meant for star receiver Michael Crabtree. In an outstanding clutch play, Sherman leaped and deflected the pass which a teammate intercepted. In a brilliant troll move, Sherman quickly ran to Crabtree to offer a handshake only to be met with Crabtree’s hand to Sherman’s face mask.
After the game was over, Sherman had some choice words for Michael Crabtree.
