Marshawn Lynch’s Mom Explains Why He Skipped Trip to the White House
By Michael Klopman
When President Barack Obama honored the Seattle Seahawks on May 21 at The White House for their victory in Super Bowl Super Bowl XLVIII, there was a certain beast missing. Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch decided not to make the trip to the nation’s capital.
Lynch’s mother, Delisa Lynch, told the Seattle Times that her son’s reasoning for not attending was simple.
“He just said he didn’t want to go,” she said. Delisa also said that Marshawn has been mourning the death of a family member but she still initially thought he would go to The White House.
Despite his absence, Obama gave Lynch a shout-out.
