Turn Back The Clock MOE

Marshawn Lynch made a surprise appearance at the spring game of his alma mater, California, and even ran for a touchdown. The biggest giveaway that this wasn’t serious wasn’t that he was wearing his Seahawks shoes or had his shirt untucked, it’s that he didn’t grab his dick as he crossed the plane.
