Richard Sherman. Man.
This whole Richard-Sherman THING is amazing on so very many levels. You have Sherman himself, who is a fascinating individual. You have the role that sports plays in our society and its importance on greater racial issues. You have the reaction of people. You have the meta-reaction that social media always creates with modern stories. And, also, you know, somewhere in all of this is a football game. I could write for HOURS on this but I'm going to make this short. This post has two points: 1) To bring everyone up to speed on the story and 2) To paint, what I think, is the real picture of Richard Sherman. But first, we must jump.
