Marshawn Lynch and the Injury Cart Bobblehead
To celebrate the 10 years since Marshawn Lynch took the injury cart for a little ghost riding victory lap, Cal Athletics gave away Marshawn Lynch bobbleheads to commemorate the occasion, complete with real-life Marshawn riding the cart around before the game to "Tell Me When To Go" with the man who took the hyphy movement nationwide, E-40.
It's fun to remember/relive the moment I covered 10 years ago (has it really been that long?)... with my Canon EOS Digital Rebel shutter priority 1/800 at ISO 800 which lead to the stunning f/16 aperture that doesn't do any favors to separate Lynch from the fans in the background.
Since then, I've learned a few things, gone from student-photographer to professional photographer and I've covered the Super Bowl. Likewise, he's learned a few things and gone from student-athlete to professional athlete, and won a Super Bowl... I'd say we're even. But then again, he retired a millionaire and here I am still playing the game.
But I'm so happy for him to get out while still able bodied and energetic, about the next chapter of his life. He looked absolutely gleeful! From being reprimanded for pulling this stunt 10 years ago, to now being asked back to re-create along with his mom, Delisa Lynch and E-40.
When TV (aka media) asked him whether he planned to go left or right around the goal post out of the tunnel, he got to respond "It's unscripted" as are you Money Lynch, enjoy the ride :)
