For once, Richard Sherman isn’t the leading trend on Twitter, as far as pro athletes’ interactions with the media go. That honor is now in the hands of the a man who is far less loquacious: Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch.
When NFL Network’s Deion Sanders stopped him for an interview during the Super Bowl‘s media day Tuesday, the man known to go “Beast Mode” on NFL defenses had little to say about the chance to play in one of the most televised events on earth.
Here’s a snippet of the interview:
Deion: You look like you’re ready to play, man.
Marshawn: Yep, that’s what time it is.
Deion: You kinda shy?
Deion: You just don’t…wanna talk, really.
Marshawn: I’m just about that action, boss.
Deion: You bout’ to go get it. You just like to do it?
Marshawn: That’s what it is. I ain’t never seen no talking win me nothin’.
The 2-minute exchange is a lighthearted look into the personality of a man who is known to reek havoc on defenders who get in his way on the gridiron. It put a smile on Deion’s face and Twitter felt the same:
You literally can't get cooler than Marshawn Lynch. He's the pinnacle of cool. He makes Miles Davis look like a f*ckin nerd.—
