In honor of his first home game in his hometown, Marshawn Lynch gave us free Skittles.
Marshawn Lynch, newly of the Oakland Raiders, set up five free Skittles vending machines in honor of his first home game as a Raider. For Lynch, eating Skittles has been a part of his pregame routine “Since day one.” It only makes sense then that he teamed up with Skittles to provide them for free around the bay area.
Oakland is everything to Lynch. He’s very active in his community and he always gives back. As of one of the most colorful characters in the NFL now playing in his home city, known as one of the most diehard fan bases in the league, well, that’s a match made in heaven.
Beast Mode is starting his tenure in The Town the right way–the Marshawn way.
Five free vending machines were set up around the bay area, including one at his Beast Mode store in downtown Oakland, that were operational from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The free Skittles won’t be the reason Lynch gets a standing ovation in his first home game as a Raider, but they certainly make his return sweeter.
For bay area residents, Marshawn Lynch is a gift that keeps giving. But the biggest gift he can give the city will be to Just Win Baby!
Going up against an unimpressive New York Jets team, winning shouldn’t be hard for the Raiders. Chances are Beast Mode will show out and put on for his city in his home debut since returning to football.
