Marshawn Lynch was on Bear Grylls show and it was amazing

Published Add your comment

Marshawn Lynch has had a quality retirement so far.

The former Seattle Seahawks superstar went to Australia with his former college team the Cal Golden Bears, has done some charity work in his local community in Oakland, and coached at a football camp in Egypt.

There have been rumours about Lynch potentially returning to the league, but Beast Mode seems happy and was seen last night on Bear Grylls’ “Running Wild” on NBC. It was fantastic.

“It’s a lot of excitement, a lot of fear, a lot of unknowns — and a lot of what the f— am I doing here,” he said in the show’s opening sequence as Grylls took him on a two-day trip in France that saw them need to get from one point in the mountains to the other.

One of the best parts was when the two went hunting for a hog for dinner. The animal fell off a cliff and Bear made Lynch go and get it. It's safe to say that the former Super Bowl winner wasn't too happy.

Lynch seriously said that he is fully prepared to throw hands with Grylls if he were to make him doing any other scary stuff.

The next step was cooking the hog. To get a fire going, Grylls cut off one of Beast Mode's braids and used it as kindling - because of course he did.

Lynch wrapped things up by talking about the greatest moment in his entire football career was the day he retired.

"Being able to retire, and then being able to do this with you after retiring. Most people don’t get to walk out or go out the way that I did. That’s probably the biggest highlight," he said.

Never change Marshawn, never change.
