Richard Sherman is done saying he's done playing. And he let the world know it by helping the Seahawks beat the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game last night and then calling Michael Crabtree out in an epic post-game interview. He also continued to let everyone know it by dropping this gem on Twitter a short time after the game:
"Done saying I'm Done playing"— Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) January 20, 2014
That line is, of course, from Drake's latest album, Nothing Was the Same. On the first bar on "Too Much," Drake raps, "Done saying I'm done playing." Er, or is it?
Back on 50 Cent's debut, Get Rich or Die Tryin', Eminem used a similar line on "Don't Push Me" when he rapped, "I bullied my way in this game, man, I'm done playin'/Man, I'm done sayin' that I'm done playin'."
So which rap line was Sherman referring to? Really, it doesn't matter. Either way, he was quoting a rapper, which is pretty cool. But we bring it up because even that triggered a lot of anger on Twitter last night with regards to Richard Sherman.
Some people thought Sherman was referencing Drake:
Others called those people idiots and thought Sherman was referencing Em:
@RSherman_25 Everybody saying this is Drake is dumb. Check Eminem's verse on 50 Cent's "Don't Push Me". Get the facts straight y'all.— Robert Diaz (@bobby_diaz24) January 20, 2014
@RSherman_25 tweeting the eminem lyric. I like it.— YaBoySamuelTroy (@YaBoySamuelTroy) January 20, 2014
And all the while, we imagine Sherman was sitting back with a smile on his face while his name shot to the top of Twitter's trending topics.
Who do you think he was quoting after the game last night?
