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.
