It was the interview heard around the world.
It practically broke twitter. The second after the FOX producers cut away from that interview, I turned to my fiance and said, "Twitter's about to melt down."
And of course it did. It's been a major storyline following the Seahawks-49ers game. On one hand, I understand why folks would be upset at it — it possibly overshadows the team's on-field performance and a great game between two rivals. On the other hand, this is another fantastic moment in the 49ers-Seahawks rivalry, which has ascended near the top of the NFL's best.
With 28 other NFL teams at home watching Sunday's games, Ravens players were bound to catch the interview. They naturally took to twitter to voice their opinions on Sherman's antics.
