What does Marshawn Lynch get for giving Skittles a huge (free!) advertising boost every time he scores a touchdown for the Seahawks by pounding the candy into his esophagus?
How about a $10,000 fine by the NFL for a uniform violation last week when he wore Skittles-patterned shoes (via Brian McIntyre)?
This isn’t the first time Lynch has been fined this year for a uniform violation. He also was docked $5,000 for wearing lime green socks on Monday Night Football.
Here’s hoping Skittles will help pay Lynch’s fine. Or, at the very least, give him a lifetime’s supply of the sugary snack to make up for the $10K out of Lynch’s paycheck. That, after all, could have bought him A LOT of Skittles.
