Marshawn Lynch delivers overly descriptive term about having to take drug test

Marshawn Lynch delivered a classic — not to mention colorfully descriptive — line after the Oakland Raiders’ 24-17 victory over the New York Giants when explaining why he couldn’t meet with reporters. And it all had to do with being ordered to take a drug test.

The enigmatic and eminently quotable Raiders running back — who rushed for 101 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries in Sunday’s win — explained to the media after the game that he needed to provide “ding-ding sauce” to the league.

“I’m sorry, though, look,” Marshawn Lynch said as he showed reporters a notice from his locker that he had been selected for a random drug test after the game, via ESPN’s Paul Gutierrez. “It’s either this, or that, and I can’t afford that. I apologize. But if you do not understand what this is, it’s when you put your ding-ding sauce out and give them a sample.”

And there you have it. Um, gross.

Lynch’s line just might be the most creative — and bizarre — way to characterize providing a urine sample. Then again, this is coming from the guy who created a Super Bowl media day catchphrase to end all catchphrases when saying, “I’m just here so I won’t get fined.” Lynch, in fact, actually obtained a trademark for the classic line. So there you go. Perhaps he ought to being the process of trademarking “ding-ding sauce” as well. Actually, maybe he should not.
