J.K. Rowling: 'Did I ever mention that I'm a Seahawks fan?'

Updated:

J.K. Rowling is a Seahawks fan. 

The author of the Harry Potter series tweeted about her fandom a day after Richard Sherman dressed up as Harry during a news conference

In true Halloween spirit, Sherman wore his Harry Potter best, with wand in hand, to Wednesday’s news conference.

“When you’re a wizard, like we are out here, sometimes you have to show it to the Muggles out in the world," he said.

SB Nation reports it was actually Sherman’s son idea for the Seahawks cornerback to dress up. But there's no doubt Sherman is a legitimate Harry Potter fan:

  • Sherman says “Order of the Phoenix” is his favorite book.
  • He says that Quidditch is pretty tough compared to five quarters of football.
  • He considers himself a Gryffindor and not a Hufflepuff.
  • According to a New York Times article, he went to midnight screenings for the movies.

But back to the football field, Seattle Seahawks got first their first tie in franchise history on Sunday against the Cardinals.
