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