Yes. I've hiked it many times in all seasons and don't care about ticking lists. I can always find something interesting on a Colorado mountain, even Sherman.
Coincidentally, you've responded to the only part post that wasn't 100% flippant sarcasm.
I'm still not looking forward to this ascent (Unless Salvation Mountain II pops up on the summit.)
It can wait forever. I cannot.

Nice. It can be a much different mountain in winter, for sure. One of the best 14er powder days I've had was on Sherman after a big storm - it was a mellow ski but loads of snow!
I'll take the summit of Sherman over sitting in an office any day.

Yeah, the worst day on the easiest mountain is WAY better than the best day in the office.
