Former Cal Star Marshawn Lynch Caught Pleading For Whiskey During Super Bowl Parade

SEATTLE (CBS SF) – Former Cal star Marshawn Lynch got one of his more impressive handoffs of the season during Wednesday’s Super Bowl victory parade in downtown Seattle – a bottle of booze from one of the 700,000 fans in attendance.

The Oakland native has known how to celebrate a win since before his days wheeling a golf cart around the Memorial Stadium Turf. Here’s a look back:

But on Wednesday Lynch, who is known for munching Skittles on the sideline, showed his taste is all grown up now.

Riding all alone atop an amphibious tour bus apparently got a tad boring for the star running back of the Seattle Seahawks. So when he spotted a fan with a bottle of Fireball Whiskey in the crowd he demanded a handoff, as this video shows.

As you can see, it took a while for the fan to catch on, but once he did, ignoring the wants of a man known as “Beast Mode” was not an option. As CBS Sports reports, Lynch was later caught sneaking sips.
