Marshawn Lynch returns lost wallet to local resident
Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has endured a recent run of bad press. Most recently was not joining his teammates in the locker room during halftime of Seattle's loss to Kansas City this past Sunday.
A side of Lynch many fans don't see was on display for Seattle-area resident Jason Lynch — of no relation to the Seahawks runner.
Via Seattle's KIRO TV, Jason Lynch wrote about a recent incident involving the one they call Beast Mode on his Facebook page. After seeing Marshawn Lynch at a gas station in Marysville, Wash., Jason Lynch went to pick up his son, only to realize long after the fact he dropped his wallet.
When he returned home, Jason Lynch's neighbor came over to give him the dropped wallet while letting him know who the Good Samaritan in this case was.
Jason Lynch wrote this on his Facebook page:
“Crazy! So I'm at the shell station in Marysville. I'm getting in my car when I see a giant Mercedez van pull up playing music super loud. Marshawn Lynch jumps out and walks into the store. I thought asking for a picture but was in my work clothes and decided not to bother him. I leave to go pick up Junior ... what I didn't know was that I dropped my wallet. When I got home about 10 minutes later my neighbor knocks on door. She told me I would never guess who brought this to her ...I had no clue, but when she said Marshawn Lynch I was shocked!
"I guess I was so distracted by the van pulling up I dropped my wallet. My neighbor said Marshawn, Richardo Lockette and a cameraman were headed to Marysville Pilchuck and decided to bring it to me on the way there. My neighbor tried asking for a pic but they politely refused and their only concern was that I got my wallet back. I can't thank them guys enough for bringing it back and for making my neighbor a very happy lady for getting to a chance to meet them.”
It's easy to pile on Marshawn Lynch based on incidents such as what took place in Kansas City this past weekend. But it's moments like this that help reveal his true character and why he's so revered by the Seattle fan base.
