EDIT: January 31, 2012 - The word “Beastmode” has officially entered the sports world lexicon and general parlance as being “for those young people” and “the compliment du jour” by the 10PM West Coast edition of SportsCenter. Therefore, almost two years after its inception, I regretfully retire the Marshawn Lynch shrine and his subsequent “Lynchisms.” The original post in its entirety, save for a January 8, 2011 edit after Marshawn’s magical run in the Wild Card Round of the 2011 NFL Playoffs, is enshrined here for your entertainment.
Hello M.S.H.ers! You might be wondering why the hell we have a page dedicated to Marshawn Lynch, but then again, I’d wonder why you’re even wondering.
Marshawn Lynch is a former California (UC Berkeley) running back. He achieved and maintained over a 3.0 undergraduate GPA while at Cal, a feat which would leave the vast majority of its sleep-deprived Asian population almost wide-eyed.
However, Marshawn decided to leave his beloved UC Berkeley to play football professionally, and declared his eligibility for the NFL Draft. An engaging, soft-spoken intellectual, Marshawn likens his transformation from “ordinary life” into “game time” persona as becoming a “beast.” Marshawn was drafted 12th overall by the Buffalo Bills, and continues to provide great moments for us while helping the Buffalo Economy. After some run-ins with the law in Buffalo, Marshawn relocated to Seattle to play for the Seahawks, where he would finally be allowed to smoke bricks upon bricks of Uncle Pete’s hash.
This page is dedicated to Marshawn Lynch, whose tireless work ethic, ability to laugh after getting hit, and self-destructive pursuit of fun has inspired me to keep this blog going. Whenever I’ve thought about ditching the blog altogether, I’ve asked myself: What would Marshawn do? And his answer is simple, insightful, and duo-syllabic:
UPDATE: So on January 8, 2011… this thing happened… where everyone’s favorite Seattle Seahawk decided to basically ruin Tracy Porter’s now-late career. Of course, we at M.S.H. supported Marshawn when he was doing completely in
sane shit, like ghost-riding the injury cart. However, we here at M.S.H. don’t look down our noses to those who didn’t know Marshawn’s potential before this historic run; the way we see it, the more Marshawn fans worshipers, the better. So take a gander. Without further ado, Darren Sharper, HOLD MAH DIIIIIIIIIIIIICK.
