I feel like the more controversial and 'against the grain' Sherm is the better he performs. I'm not so sure I like this 'new' and 'tamed' Sherm. He sounds a bit too 'nice' and 'politically correct'. I don't think it will but I have to admit I've had a few thoughts about whether all the recent media hoopla might affect his performance. I want to see that trash talking, brash, cocky guy before and during the game!
