These are the dog days of the NFL. Players are on vacation and getting the batteries charged up for the season and the fans are trying to grasp for anything that is football related. Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks threw a celebrity softball game during the down time and over 7000 fans came out to see the event.
The Seahawks were well represented at the event with players like Russell Wilson, Kam Chancellor, Earl Thomas, Bobby Wagner, Golden Tate, Sidney Rice, Doug Baldwin and Percy Harvin participating in the festivities.
A notable referee was also in attendance. Remember the fill-in referee that made the call TOUCHCEPTION call from last season? He was acting as an umpire for the game this time around and he took a nice little shot with Golden Tate during the game.
My Spin: Richard Sherman might have one of the biggest mouths of the game, but for some reason it keeps me entertained. He is one cocky SOB and inviting out the ref that called the touchdown for the game is a classic move. I wonder how Aaron Rodgers and the Packers feel about bringing the ref over and posing for picture with him. It sounds like a big “SCREW YOU GREEN BAY” to me.
