Richard Sherman wore a Harry Potter costume to a press conference, because why not?



This is how Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman walked into his latest press conference.

That's right. Sherman was dressed as Harry Potter, everyone's favorite wizard.

'50 points for the Seahawks'

The NFL star was dressed in a Slytherin house robe, a deluxe tie and Draco's wand when he spoke to reporters on Wednesday.

Sherman said playing five quarters of football is tougher than Quidditch, the wizard game in the Harry Potter books.

When asked why he was dressed up he said, "My son told me he wanted me to wear something. So it's happening." Sherman ended the news conference by waving his magic wand and saying "wingardium leviosa," a spell from the Potter books.

The Seahawks played a quarter of overtime against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
