After Sunday’s tie against the Cardinals, Richard Sherman was exhausted to say the least. But Wednesday, he was back and spreading the holiday magic around.
Sherman walked to the conference podium wearing a Harry Potter robe complete with wand and glasses. The Harry Potter theme song even played when he entered the room.
“You’ve got to bring your own music, this is a serious occasion,” Sherman said. “It’s Halloween. My son told me he wanted me to wear something, so it’s happening. It’s happening.”
It looks like Sherman is a Gryffindor and his favorite book is Book 5: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
When asked about the costume, he responded with:
“When you’re a wizard like we are out here, sometimes you have to show it to the Muggles out in the world. We’ve got a lot of wizards — my son’s a wizard, Earl Thomas does some magical things, Michael Bennett is Black Santa but he’s also a wizard — so you know, you just have a good time. I just went to Harry Potter land, I felt like that was home.”
Richard Sherman of Gryffindor took some questions today.

And of course reporters asked about his health. He was suffering from heat exhaustion and he had the perfect answer for them.
“Well, I’m definitely a wizard, so if you’re asking if I feel like a Muggle again, I don’t. But I started feeling better probably around late yesterday, last night, just getting more fluids in me and more energy, legs started getting back under me.”
