Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch found an interesting way to involve the “12th Man” in the team’s Super Bowl parade.
On Wednesday, the members of the Super Bowl XLVIII champion Seahawks rode a set of duck boats through downtown Seattle to celebrate their victory over the Denver Broncos. Lynch, who carried the ball 15 times for 39 yards and a touchdown during the game, waved to fans from the front of one of the boats.
At some point during the Super Bowl parade, Lynch, who also appeared to have a cigar tucked behind his ear, spotted a fan who was holding a bottle of Fireball whiskey. A fan who took a photo of the scene told Deadspin that Lynch reached into the crowd and grabbed the bottle.
“I took this picture as the parade was rolling by our office … This is Marshawn Lynch riding on the front of a duck boat,” Deadspin’s tipster wrote. “A man is reaching to hand him a bottle of Fireball. A second later Marshawn grabbed it.” Deadspin’s photo can be viewed here.
A video from the parade seems to corroborate the story. In the footage, Lynch spots something in the crowd and begins gesturing off-camera toward the object. As the duck boat rolls by, the fan hands Lynch a bottle of whiskey.
Footage of Lynch reaching for the bottle of Fireball whiskey can be viewed below.
