WATCH: Remembering When Marshawn Lynch Gave Hilarious ‘Look’ at Buffalo Nightlife

by Kayla Zadel

Marshawn Lynch made the best of his time when he was in Buffalo, New York. He apparently found his place at a couple of different establishments in town.

In this clip below, he takes the NFL through some of his hangouts. “Marshawn Lynch sharing his Buffalo nightlife experience is a classic NFL Countdown feature,” the tweet reads.

First stop, Applebees. “Oh yeah, this spot hot,” the running back says as he walks into the restaurant and high-fives staff members. “I love the ambiance. I love the decor.” Then Lynch continues with a perplexing thought, “I spend a lot of time trying to figure out which one I like more, the ambiance or the decor.”

Next, a cut to Lynch standing behind the bar, filling up his own soda glass. “They let me pour my own drink. I love the sound it makes, so much power,” he says. “I come in here and throw back a few crispy fiesta wrappers. Then I head over to my second favorite joint. Playtime.”

The video then cuts to a clip of Dave & Buster’s. According to the video, Marshawn Lynch loves the arcade spot because it reminds him of two of his favorite people, Buster Douglas and Dave Concepción. Lynch is seen playing a race car arcade game and then shooting hoops with friends and ESPN reporter Kenny Mane.

Mane says, “The rookie has spent most of signing bonus on akee-ball, but he doesn’t care, saying it’s good for the Buffalo economy.”

Sometimes Lynch returns to Applebee’s after Dave & Buster’s to finish out his night.

Marshawn Lynch Drafted by Buffalo Bills

Lynch was drafted by the Bills in 2007 in the first round. However, the retired then non-retired, and then retired again running back wasn’t entirely sure where he was going after he got selected.

“I didn’t know what to expect, I just knew I was going to New York,” Lynch said in an interview. “I thought I was gonna be out there with Jay-Z, and then when I finally landed in Buffalo… [there was] slush on the ground. It had just finished snowing. I didn’t [know anything about snow].”

After all, Lynch did grow up in Oakland, California.
