Marshawn Lynch Jokes About Ending of Super Bowl XLIX on ‘The League’

Marshawn Lynch Jokes About Ending of Super Bowl XLIX on ‘The League’

Surprise.The Seattle Seahawks should’ve run the ball. By now, we all know this.

Just in case anyone forgot, Marshawn Lynch provided a reminder during his appearance on FXX’s The League
The clip above, which will air September 9, features the running back hanging out on the beach as a business member of “Taco Corp.” along with a character named Taco MacArthur.

Another dude, who’s Taco’s brother on the show, asks for a beer, and Lynch’s fellow bigwig insists on throwing it.

“Just hand it to me,” Beast Mode begs. “No need to throw it, man. C’mon. … I could sleepwalk that thing to him, boy.”

“I think I’m going to throw it,” Taco responds. “What’s the worst that could happen?”

And with that, a beer is tossed, and a man is set on fire.

“That’s why you run it,” Lynch says, in what was probably an exact quote of what he mumbled following Russell Wilson’s championship-losing interception back in February.

A Retired Michael Jordan Abuses Trash Talking Bulls Player in 1999

A Retired Michael Jordan Abuses Trash-Talking Bulls Player in 1999 Surprise
You don’t poke a sleeping bear. In 1999, between Michael Jordan’s second and third retirements, Chicago Bulls guard Corey Benjamin learned that the hard way.

When His Airness stopped by Bulls practice, the bold 21-year-old told MJ: “I’m sorry you retired, because I wanted to take you.”

And with that, it was on.

Jordan relentlessly abused the youngster, scoring on him with ease and talking all kinds of trash along the way. At one point, MJ told Benjamin exactly what he was going to do. “I’m going right back over there. C’mon, follow me. … You reach, I teach.”

Turnaround jumper—cash.

MJ also told Benjamin to look around him, referencing all the banners he raised as a Bull.

The one-on-one game wasn’t close, and obviously Jordan won. As he sunk the game-winner, he told Benjamin to “sit down” and not to call him out again.

Vintage MJ.

Chicago players watched in awe as the greatest player of all time gave them all a reality check. Retirement couldn’t hold Jordan back—and neither could some young, cocky guard named Corey Benjamin.

Surprise.Finishing a Father’s Dream: Manute Bol’s Son Could Be a 7’4″ Kevin Durant
A father’s dream, hoped to be finished by his son.

NBA legend Manute Bol stood 7’7″ and was one of the most influential athletes off the hardwood. Manute played 10 years in the NBA and dedicated the majority of his wealth back to helping his native home of Sudan through a horrific civil war.

Manute unfortunately passed away at the early age of 47 and couldn’t continue to aid his native people.

Manute had several children, one of whom is now a 15-year-old, 6’10” high school basketball star named Bol Bol. Bol is one of the top prospects in his freshman class and has the potential to revolutionize the way the game is played with his size and athleticism.

Bol is mature beyond his years, and he knows what a future in basketball could mean. He wants the opportunity to finish what his father started and continue to help the people of Sudan.

Watch the video for the remarkable story of a son already poised to finish his father’s dream.

A special thanks to Bishop Miege High school and family consultant Richard A. Fancher for helping to set everything up.

Jim Harbaugh Interview Gets so Painfully Awkward Colin Cowherd Abruptly Ends It Surprise

Jim Harbaugh Interview Gets so Painfully Awkward Colin Cowherd Abruptly Ends It , Surprise
This Wednesday morning interview with Michigan Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh is what ESPN’s Colin Cowherd would describe as a “clunker.”

Cowherd spent the entire interview asking open-ended questions, but Harbaugh didn’t provide many in-depth answers. A miscommunication in the middle of the interview certainly didn’t help the cause.

Eventually, Cowherd gave up on the interview and abruptly ended it.

Harbaugh would later own up to contributing to the clunker:

‘The Baby-Faced Assassin’ Relive Stephen Curry’s Magical NCAA Tournament Run
The month of March and the NCAA basketball tournament will always be linked together with one word: madness. Every so often, we are fortunate enough to come across a team that takes us on a magical ride, and the 2007-08 Davidson team did just that.

Way before he was a superstar for the Golden State Warriors, Stephen Curry was just Dell Curry’s kid playing college basketball for the Davidson Wildcats. In Curry’s sophomore season, the Wildcats won the Southern Conference, claiming an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament.

Davidson was awarded the 10th seed in the 2008 tournament and was expected to lose—another mid-major school that was supposed to be content with just making the NCAA tournament.

The Wildcats didn’t quite see it that way. Davidson would go on a magical run that year to the Elite Eight, led by its baby-faced assassin, Curry. Davidson was put on the map, and Curry burst onto the national scene as one of the top NBA prospects.

Watch the video as Curry and many others relive one of the greatest stories in NCAA history.

Special thanks to Stephen Curry, Bob McKillop, Bill Self, Jim Nantz, Gus Johnson, Jason Richards, Austin Daye, Davidson athletics and WCCB Charlotte for all of their help in the piece. Some highlights courtesy of WCCB Charlotte.
