The Evening Redness in the NFC West

Richard Sherman thinks pretty highly of his fellow Seahawk Kam Chancellor, so highly that he’s willing to tout the fact that Chancellor “damages people’s souls.”

Saturday night, it happened. I watched a man perfectly time – twice…in a row – a hurdle over the long snapper to attempt a field goal block. He somehow missed the first block, but there was a false start call. He then blocked the second one, but lightly touched the kicker, which made the clown pirouette violently to the ground. Penalty. A third field goal attempt followed. The man rested, showing mercy to his opponent, leaving his audience in awe.

He would later effectively end the game with a 90 yard interception TD return.

Like the judge in Blood Meridian, I now imagine Chancellor like this: “His feet are light and nimble. He never sleeps. He says that he will never die. He dances in light and in shadow and he is a great favorite. He never sleeps, the judge. He is dancing, dancing. He says that he will never die.”

Sherman speaks truth. My soul weakens.

      No, the kid would be the opposing team’s QB.

        Actually, I think it’s the other team’s kicker. Did you see how he flinched after the third kick? He was definitely expecting the Chancellor again.

      For those who weren’t there, this was the music playing during the wedding party’s introduction at our wedding reception.
