We’re Loving Richard Sherman’s Halloween Costume

We’re all huge Potter fans! But, Richard Sherman, the cornerback for the Seattle Seahawks, may have us beat. He attended a news conference on Wednesday night dressed a little differently than normal. Sherman said that his son wanted him to dress up for Halloween this year, so he did just that.

Apparently, Sherman is a die-hard Harry Potter fan, so who else would you go as? Harry Potter of course!

In an interview with USA Today, Sherman revealed who his favorite character was from the series. 

RS: Ron Weasley. I like Neville too and I like Luna Lovegood, but Luna’s kinda crazy and Neville seems a little slow, so yeah, Ron. Because Ron always surprised you. Ron always seemed like he knew what was going on, but was always in the right place and came through in the clutch when he needed to. It was like he did some really cool stuff in the Deathly Hallows, in the first Deathly Hallows, him coming through and getting the sword of Gryffindor, come on. That was a huge deal. People don’t give him any credit. The first one, the Chamber of Secrets, they’re definitely not winning the chess game without Ron there.

And it’s no surprise that J.K. Rowling loved it and tweeted about it!
