Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Tuesday, July 1 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Beast Mode At The Barbershop

Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch will appear on the new FOX Sports 1 show Back of the Shop, which offers an unfiltered discussion between some of the biggest names in sports and entertainment. The show takes place in the back of Jordan Sport Barbershop set just outside Yankee Stadium.

In tonight's episode, which airs at 5:30 p.m. PT, Lynch talks with a trio of MLB sluggers - Yoenis Cespedes, Darryl Strawberry, and Eric Davis - about living in the social media age, the Seahawks' victory in Super Bowl XLVIII, and the story behind his affinity for Skittles.

During the show, Davis asks Lynch if Super Bowl XLVIII lived up to his expectations, and the Seahawks' Beast Mode back responds with:

“It was more. I can’t even downplay the experience, though. Probably the best time I had was, when my family stepped off the plane, to see their facial expressions. My little sister went crazy – they did this little monster thing with these headphones, they wrapped one of these trucks up and it had my face all on it – she’s walking up to the truck, giving it kisses. I’m like, man, what are you doing?

“I think the biggest buildup now is preparing for next season. Because as soon as that was over, they ask you, ‘What’s going to happen next year?’ I’m like, damn, let me kick back and enjoy this one.”

Here's how you can find FOX Sports 1 on your TV.
