The Seattle Seahawks came up just short in their attempt to upset the San Francisco 49ers today but Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch had a solid individual game. In the 4th quarter he had a 4-yard TD run giving him 11 consecutive games with a TD. It was also the first rushing score allowed by San Francisco this season. Lynch finished with 107 yards on 21 carries.

During Seattle’s 31-14 win over the Philadelphia Eagles earlier this month Lynch was caught by cameras eating Skittles after scoring a TD and  reportedly ended up receiving a 24-month supply of the candy as well as a dispenser for his locker from the company. Not to be left out Nike got in on the act and created a special edition shoe for #24.

 

 

 

What’s next?

    It was funny at first when he busted out the skittles on the sidelines because it didn’t seem so staged. But now it’s so pathetic how obvious it is that this is a commercial. He’s getting paid to do this thing with his cleats, and I’m sure he was promised money if he did the little skittles celebration that he did a couple of weeks ago.

    Just like that “dunk contest” (if you want to call it that) where Blake Griffin was dunking over the Kia. Gee I wonder if the NBA got some information that Griffin was going to be a spokesperson for that car and let him have the dunk contest. How pathetic is it how staged these things are now and the idiot fans just buy into it like “wow he really loves skittles!! just like Griffin really drives a Kia!!”
