Seahawks defenders Richard Sherman and Bobby Wagner were on hand at PAX West this weekend. In between their time spent crushing helmets with tanks, GeekWire caught up with the athletes to talk video games and geekiness.
Are Richard Sherman & Bobby Wagner geeks? Sherman was quick to answer with a resounding “yes” and then proceeded to taunt Wagner about his knowledge of the fantasy role-playing game Elder Scrolls.
Wagner refused to engage in debate, returning the taunts and questioning Sherman’s ability to beat him at Madden, NBA2K and Call of Duty.
Who is the biggest gamer on the Seahawks? According to Sherman, Doug Baldwin takes the title of biggest gamer on the Hawks, using video games to warm up before games.
Who is the biggest video game trash talker on the Seahawks? Sherman and Wagner flung accusations and pointed fingers at each other for this title, also mentioning Doug Baldwin in the process. It is clear that the Seahawks team philosophy of “Always Compete” extends to video game trash talking.
Which Seahawks player would make the toughest video game boss? Sherman and Wagner both concurred that defensive end Michael Bennett would be the toughest video game boss to defeat. They outlined a strategy of using a razor to cut off his beard, which apparently would weaken him. Seahawk rivals may want to take note of this strategy.
