Whatever the question, Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has the answer. At a (mandatory) media appearance for the upcoming Super Bowl, Lynch stuck to one response Tuesday: "I'm just here so I won't get fined." After he said it nearly 30 times, he added one word: "Time."
It was a five-minute display of staying on message. And in the process, Lynch showed he can put different spins on a rote response, smiling and using slight changes in his words and delivery to make a steadfast refusal to answer questions seem like a joke he was sharing with his audience.
