SHAWN WATCH — Check out this video of Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch training with the “fast feet dude” at the beach. Amazing.

TMZ Sports report:

“Marshawn Lynch hit the beach with Luis Badillo Jr. who’s said to have the fastest feet in the world. He’s trained world class athletes like Cristiano Ronaldo, Asafa Powell and tons of NFL players. This time, he flew up to the Bay Area to put in some work with the Oakland Raiders star — and it’s clear these dudes ain’t messin’ around.”

Wow, dudes.

ESPN Body Issue to go Beast Mode again

SHAWN WATCH — The ESPN Body Issue will go Beast Mode again in 2017. Or so the story goes.

CBS News released a teaser of ESPN’s upcoming body issue with six images. I excitedly flipped through them and the only running back they showed (twice) was Dallas Cowboys rusher Ezekiel Elliott who is also on the cover.

That’s nice. But not the running back I want and probably most everyone else wants to see. Come on ESPN! We want to see our man.

In the meantime Lynch is preparing for his return to professional football with the “home team” while giving out free haircuts for good grades and 2,000 free waterpark tickets to Oakland kids, among other things.

But Business Insider reports, “Marshawn Lynch, one of the newest members of the Oakland Raiders, has been quick to ingratiate himself with the city’s youth.”

Don’t you hate that sort of jaded reporting? Oh, look. The author Sam Belden is a Sports Intern at Business Insider. Do your homework Sam and offer some facts instead of uninformed opinions.

Fact. Lynch does not ingratiate himself with anyone.

Fact. Lynch chose to stay in his community when he could easily have left.

Fact. Lynch has been helping the youth in the Oakland area since he joined the NFL in 2007.

Fact. Lynch’s Fam 1st Family Foundation has been helping thousands of kids since 2006.

Fact. Lynch is a remarkable man.

ESPN’s Body Issue hits newsstands July 7.

SHAWN WATCH — Silver and Black Pride report that:

“Marshawn Lynch joined the Oakland Raiders on April 27 under much fanfare. He took number 24 as expected and the orders immediately started pouring in from fans wanting a piece of history as Beast Mode will finally suit up for his hometown team. Making his jersey the top selling for the month of May at NFL shop.

“It wasn’t hard to predict the popularity of Lynch’s merchandise upon joining the Raiders. He is an immensely popular former All Pro running back who is beloved in Oakland and beyond.

“Lynch may be the top selling jersey, but he isn’t the only Raiders player jersey among the league’s top 25. Derek Carr was the 6th best selling jersey and Khalil Mack was the 15th best selling.

“The Raiders are the only team with three players in the top 15.”

Yeah.

NFL changes Twitter header image to Derek Carr and Marshawn Lynch

SHAWN WATCH — The NFL continues its love / hate relationship with Marshawn Lynch. Take a look at this. This is the NFL’s Twitter header.

247 Sports explains:

“The Oakland Raiders have been making waves over the past season or two, finally breaking a 13-year playoff drought and getting back over .500 in 2016. To go along with that, the growth of quarterback Derek Carr and addition of running back Marshawn Lynch have been talking points as well.

“Now, it seems that the NFL’s official Twitter page is throwing some love their way as well, as they’ve made a picture of the new dynamic duo their header.”

SHAWN WATCH — Oh my man Lynch. I am getting in Beast Mode mindset early even though his first return game is months away with this Best of Sound FX — Marshawn Lynch. Some pretty awesome clips in this video including Shawn’s second beastquake run and SB49 reactions.

Afterwards, I watched a bit of Super Bowl XLIX. I was so stunned at the final play and everything that followed it, I had forgotten what a monster game Lynch had in that game.

It is only right that Shawn gets another Super Bowl ring this time with his beloved Oakland Raiders. I have always had a sentimental spot for the Raiders and Raider Nation from way back when I was kid. Kenny “the Snake” Stabler. Are you kidding me? I also adore Derek Carr so it would have thrilled me to no end to see the Raiders win a Super Bowl without Lynch. But with Lynch? Let’s do it.

OAKLAND, Calif. — Well, after all the gossip, speculation and hype it appears Marshawn Lynch will become an Oakland Raider.

I was so thankful when he left the NFL that Lynch retired in one piece, and that I was around to watch this remarkable athlete play.

Yet, how thrilling it will be to see the great man in action once again, and for the team he grew up dreaming about playing for.

Even though the American part of me is a Texas gal, I always loved the Raiders. They have some of the most devoted and craziest fans in professional football. What a joyful occasion for Oakland to have their great local hero joining the team.

I pray that all goes well for Marshawn Lynch. Yes Lawd!
