Fox Sports host and interviewer Erin Andrews.
In fact, the host, who was the subject of many memes in the days following the rant, said that the interview was one of her best.
“It was awesome because I’ve done so many interviews that are just so cliché and so rehearsed and the same old same old where you feel like you’re sleepwalking,” Andrews said in an interview with ELLE magazine. “This is one where I was like, ‘What is happening right now?’ I’ve never been a part of something like that, and obviously that’s why everyone nationally is talking about it.”
And what about those rumors that Andrews was extremely uncomfortable during the infamous rant that has inaccurately painted Sherman as a “thug” to America?
“I actually really like Richard Sherman a lot,” she said. “He’s probably one of my favorite football players. The guy is so smart and he’s got an unbelievable story. That was just pure, raw emotion.”
To prove it, she posted a picture of her favorite guy via Twitter on Thursday:

Too bad Sherman’s critics don’t feel the same way.
