Marshawn Lynch dodges Skittles, demands fan’s whiskey bottle during parade (videos)


In what probably was the third best day in Mashawn Lynch’s life — outside of the Super Bowl and being born (of course) — the Seattle Seahawks running back was living it up while riding high on a duck boat during the team’s Super Bowl victory parade through the streets of Seattle on Wednesday afternoon.

Fans lined the streets to pay tribute to the team and celebrate its thorough beatdown of the Denver Broncos on Sunday. Marshawn Lynch — as he has been throughout the playoffs — was one of the most lauded and loved of all the players.

At one point during the festivities, Lynch, wearing a facemask to protect himself from the cool temperatures, noticed a fan had in their possession a bottle of Fireball whiskey. Lynch proceeded to go “Beast Mode” on the fan, pantomiming his desire to relieve the fan of the bottle.

After some effort, his demands were understood and Lynch procured the bottle. Well done.

Too bad no one makes Skittles-flavored whiskey, right?

Speaking of which, here’s Lynch dodging Skittles raining down upon him.

Lynch also threw Skittles at fans to get in on the act:

Yeah, it was a good day.
