Richard Sherman cooks at the White House

NFL player Richard Sherman knows how important it is to eat right, which is why he recently stopped by the White House to help First Lady Michelle Obama with her Let’s Move campaign.

Spoofing on his infamous post-game sideline rant in January, the Seattle Seahawks cornerback yelled his way through presenting the healthy school lunch he whipped up in the White House kitchen: salmon cakes and succotash.

He had a little help from Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and safety Earl Thomas, and of course the support of the FLOTUS, who played “sideline reporter” and interviewed Sherman about the meal. While chopping peppers and seasoning salmon, Sherman narrates, “This is how champions are made.”

When the First Lady asks him to take her through his “final plate” (har har), he shouts, “We the best chefs in the game!”

The question she missed: What kid would willingly dig into salmon cakes or succotash? Still, the video’s worth a watch. Check it out below:
