Marshawn Lynch Talks Stealing Cart on ‘Peyton’s Places’

Earlier this season on Peyton’s Places, Manning spoke with NFL great running back Marshawn Lynch. Manning showed up to the interview driving an injury cart, a reference to the infamous moment during Lynch’s college career at Cal when he stole a cart and went on a joy ride on the field during a game. Lynch explained how that happened.

“Over time, I had a touchdown that put us up,” Lynch said. “So you know, the offense got us a chance to score, and then Desmond (Bishop) got a pick. He wore number ten, too. He ran it back maybe like sixty or seventy yards, and I was like, ‘I’m tired myself,’ and that cart was just sitting right there. Like, ghost ride the whip.”

Lynch said he wanted to do something that people normally wouldn’t see at a University of California football game.

“I ran and jumped on the cart, so I’m sliding that thing, right. And then people started rushing the field. I’m like, ‘Man, this is Cal. People don’t rush the field here.’ But all these people were just running through, so I’m sliding through that thing. Sus left. Sus right. Come back. Bring that thing back. Sliding, and then it was over after that.”
