Marshawn Lynch, Real Life Buffalo Bill

Posted by: Avinash on Friday, May 4th, 2007

There’s some grumbling in Buffalo about choosing Marshawn Lynch with the #12 pick, considering the Bills have had past character issues with running backs (Lynch’s so-called troubles are plenty exaggerated) this decade. But it seems the city is starting to warm up to him after his press conference:

Marshawn Lynch was so eager to get started, the Buffalo Bills’ top draft pick was spotted peaking around the corner of the team’s media room well before the press conference began Monday.”I got caught in the act,” the former star University of California running back said a few minutes later, flashing a wide gold-toothed grin. “Whew, I’ve been waiting for this since Day 1. This is what I woke up every morning from Pop Warner on for.”

Lynch then held up the Bills jersey—No. 1 with “Lynch” printed on the back—presented to him by team owner Ralph Wilson.

“I was just telling someone, this is really my name on an NFL jersey,” Lynch said. “I accomplished something. And it don’t stop here.”

We’re fairly certain Marshawn will just do fine in our birthplace (he’s moving there with his mother, according to the article), especially if he’s allowed to keep on celebrating like this:

Unfortunately, we’re pretty sure if he tried a stunt like this after the Bills won a game, the No-Fun League would fine him $50000 or suspend him without pay and Peter King would lambast him for standing up the losers. Monday Morning QBs suck.
