(New York Post)—Marshawn Lynch’s coldness to the media apparently does not extend worldwide.
The reticent superstar finally opened up about the heartbreaking Seahawks defeat to the Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX, offering his undivided thoughts to Turkish media as part of a promotional tour.
“To be honest with you, I would be lying if I didn’t tell you that I was expecting the ball,” Lynch told NTV Spor, Turkey’s leading sports network, about Seattle’s infamous final play, a 1-yard pass attempt that was intercepted when a Beast Mode punch-in could have been the go-ahead score. “Yes, I was expecting the ball. But in life, these things happen. Like I told a reporter after the game, it’s a team sport.”
