Watch Richard Sherman Cook While Michelle Obama Plays Sideline Reporter

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:

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
