I created the U MAD Bro for Sherman.

  • Some of you might know me as the guy with the hawks motor home. I'm also the guy who made the "u mad bro?" meme and sent it to Richard Sherman. I had no idea that it would become what it became. It just took off with a life of its own. I was a little disappointed that Sherman never mentioned who sent it to him..but meh ..who cares. Just thought you guys might find the story interesting. :)

    lol I wasnt going to send it to him. I originally made it for my facebook friends and my girl goes "Send it to Sherman's twitter he will love it" and Ba-BOOM!!

    Literally 10 second photoshop job . I found the pic on the AP sight IMMEDIATELY after the game. Before anyone had even seen the shot.

  • Big deal. I never got credit for the "how do u like them apples" saying after the Pats game. Someone turns it into a meme and they win the Internet.

  • It is pretty interesting how that got a life of its own. The reason it took off for the NFL AM guys is that they though Sherman had done it as part of his trash talking efforts against Brady. If he would have retweeted it acknowledging the creator, I wonder how much traction it gets from the national guys?

    Same with Florio and NFL.com. The Seahawks supposedly asked Sherman to take the tweet down. I wonder if he mentioned to them that it wasn't his work or he just let it stand as his work?

    One of our local guys should ask him about this just to see how much play the national folks would give it if they found out he didn't do it? He and Earl still gave Brady grief during and after the game so it wouldn't diffuse the uproar from back then. Interesting.

  • Well, did you give credit to the photographer? I'm not trying to say it isn't cool that you created the meme. It is. But, unless you took the picture yourself, you're really more of a co-creator, wouldn't you say?

    Also, on a side not: Richard Sherman sure is a great player, eh?

    Ahh yes you are correct. But in my defense the photographer had no intention of MY intentions. He ended up being a photographic remix if you will. To be quite honest I wasnt really thinking much when I made it. I just did it for fun to jab at the fans of the pats. It wasnt supposed to be HUGE like it is today lol.

  • I'm glad you sent it to him. The way the whole thing worked out, Sherman got a ton of national attention. He was probably the biggest pro-bowl snub last year, it would have sucked balls if that somehow repeated itself this year. He was something like 5th in pro-bowl voting around the time that picture was made.

    That reminds me, it's really stupid that fans get any input on the pro-bowl options. I was looking over the top vote getters and aside from QB it's a pretty horrible list.

    To be fair, I only whipped up that meme for the fine folks here. Someone else then lifted it from .net and tweeted it to the players and Danny O'Neil, and they're the one who got photo credit in his blog. And two days later, no one cared, myself included. Such is the internet: contribute entertainment, and expect only entertainment in return. Besides, God help us if a few memes are the pinnacle of our creative output in life.

  • I made up the nickname "Futch" for Steve F-ing Hutchinson when he signed with the Vikings. That is my proudest moment, because I saw it catch on over every Seahawk site and even saw it appear on Sando's site. That made me pretty proud. Nothing better than turning somebody's name into a combo of their name and a four letter word. I am sure my parents would have been so proud having known their son had come up with something so witty. ;)

  • Someone just linked a Yahoo! article about Sherman, and in there, he admits he probably didn't say "u mad bro" to Brady after the game, and that a fan tweeted it to him, and he retweeted it. So he's not taking full credit at least.

    He didn't give the twitter handle but he did acknowledge it wasn't his work.
