The Richard Sherman Reaction to the Malcolm Butler Interception Is Painful to Watch (GIFs)
Just minutes after Seahawks wide receiver Jermaine Kearse some how came up with the luckiest, most insane circus catch in Super Bowl history, Pete Carroll decided to call a slant pass on 2nd and 1 instead of handing the ball (and the game) to the guy they call Beast Mode. Next thing you know, Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler makes what is probably the greatest defensive play in Super Bowl history, intercepting the pass from Russell Wilson to Ricardo Lockette to seal victory for his team.
The ending to Super Bowl XLIX was a lot of things to a lot of people. To some it was thrilling; to others it was heartbreaking. To some it was miraculous; to others it was maddening. And nowhere were these emotions more evident than in the faces of the people it affected most.
Watch Pete Carroll bend over in shame:
Watch the look of abject horror and despair come over the face of Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman:
And watch Tom Brady jump around like a giddy school girl:
Agony and ecstasy, folks. That’s what sports is all about. Agony and ecstasy.
