It's time to announce another memorable sporting highlight from 2014 as we countdown to the number 1 moment of the year being announced on New Year's Eve. Coming in at number 24 is Richard Sherman's passionate outburst live on TV.

Sherman and his Seattle Seahawks beat the San Francisco 49ers in the 2013 NFC Championship Game, but it was Sherman's last second interception and subsequent post-game interview that will longer in the memory of football fans.

The stage was set for something special at CenturyLink Field in Seattle, Washington. With 25 seconds left, the 49ers were down by 6 with the ball deep into Seattle territory. Enter Richard Sherman.

Colin Kaepernick fired off a pass into the endzone looking for wide receiver Michael Crabtree. But Sherman was with him step-for-step and managed to tip the pass to fellow Seahawks defensive back Malcolm Smith for the game ending interception.

And then Sherman went absolutely ballistic in a post-game on-field interview with Erin Andrews, where he laid into Crabtree and the Niners.

“Well, I’m the best corner in the game! When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that’s the result you gonna get! Don’t you EVER talk about me,” Sherman said.

Don’t you open your mouth about the best. Or I’m gonna shut it for you real quick. L-O-B.”

Sherman's comments went out live on TV and shocked the whole of North America and the rest of the watching world. An outburst like that had never been seen before and it generated an immense amount of conversation and debate.

But without a doubt it raised the buzz around Sherman who is now known as one of the best corners in the NFL and signed what was the biggest deal ever signed by a player at the position.

The Seahawks won the game, made their way to the SuperBowl, and destroyed Peyton Manning's Denver Broncos after more incredible defensive play from the Legion of Boom.
