Sherman talked to one Seahawks fan, who said of the team, "I've been a die-hard fan since the beginning … of 2013."

Sherman then showed a photo of de Blasio and berated him for overhyping the treacherous blizzard that never was.

"I've seen bigger blizzards at Dairy Queen," Sherman lamented. He also referred to DeflateGate as "Ballgazi, aka the e-ball-a crisis."
