Richard Sherman re-enacts rant for the sake of school lunches

Seattle Seahawks star Richard Sherman showed he can eat his words — for the right cause.

During a White House visit last week, Sherman and teammates Russell Wilson and Earl Thomas filmed a video for First Lady Michelle Obama’s campaign to improve school lunches and fight childhood obesity. Spoofing his infamous “I’m the best corner in the game” rant, a natty Sherman sliced peppers, tweezed garnishes, and informed “sideline reporter” Obama that he and his crew are the best chefs in the game.

“Take me through your final plate, Richard,” Obama urged. Sherman showed off a dish of salmon cakes, corn and succotash, saying with a more serious bent that “whether you’re a pro athlete or just a kid at school wanting a healthy meal, you’ve got to put the right fuel in your body in order to perform at your best.”

We won’t spoil the joke at the end; watch below for the full video.
