Hump Day Humor

Dave Ross of has a Christmas-inspired musical tribute to running back Marshawn Lynch. It's a song to the tune of "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" and it's definitely worth a listen. I've also laid out the lyrics below. Enjoy.

You're a mean one, Marshawn Lynch!
The way you just refuse to fall
I will say for what it's worth
You intimidate Big Bertha, Marshawn Lynch!

You're like a 25-ton bulldozer zig-zagging through a mine field with a maniac at the controls!

You're a fast one, Marshawn Lynch!
You grew up where life was rough
You know just what it takes to fight for every break, Marshawn Lynch!

I'd no sooner stand between you and the end zone than I'd stand between Homer Simpson and a 6-pack of Duff!

If you tackle, Marshawn Lynch
Be prepared for what you face
When they peel you from the stack, his cleats are in your back, Marshawn Lynch!

I would say that standing in front of you is more dangerous than going to the Bellevue Square parking deck the day before Christmas and standing in front of the last space!
