The Marshawn Lynch Dress Code: Wear Whatever the F–k I Want (Pic)
Marshawn Lynch is in Turkey right now—along with a bunch of other players nobody cares about—working with the NFL’s “American Football Without Barriers” program.
What is the NFL’s “American Football Without Barriers” program? Ostensibly it is a program that aims to teach the joys of football (and serious head injuries) to people in nerd countries that tend to prefer inferior sports like soccer. In reality, it is a program designed to help the NFL grow new markets and make even more money.
But that doesn’t really matter. The point is, Marshawn Lynch is in Turkey with “American Football Without Barriers.” And he is being his very Marshawn Lynchiest.
On Monday he gave an interview to a Turkish sports network in which he finally shared his thoughts on the ending of Super Bowl XLIX, probably just to piss off American sports journalists. Then he went to some official “American Football Without Barriers” function with all the other players and coaches. And while everyone else adhered to the NFL’s dress code, Marshawn Lynch adhered to the Marshawn Lynch dress code—which of course is “wear whatever the f–k I want.”
Take a look:
That’s got to be one of the greatest NFL photos of all time. Just Marshawn being Marshawn, not giving even the slightest of sh*ts.
