Colin Kaepernick On Richard Sherman: “Come On”
Colin Kaepernick was in a private room on the sixth floor of a West Side event space, standing in front of a white scrim festooned with corporate logos and posing for photos with a succession of lesser VIPs.

You can pull off that kind of look when you happen to be Colin Kaepernick. Well, him or Knight Rider.
