Marshawn Lynch is sound out for a footballing beast

Just one of those Lynch on Lynch Good Samaritan stories

Seattle Seahawks fan Jason Lynch has running-back namesake Marshawn Lynch to thank for returning his lost wallet.

According to Washington’s KIRO 7, the fan misplaced his wallet at a petrol station before the Seahawks star dropped it off with a neighbour.

Jason Lynch explained the series of events on his FaceBook page.

“Crazy!  So I’m at the shell station in Marysville.  I’m getting in my car when I see a giant Mercedez van pull up playing music super loud.  Marshawn Lynch jumps out and walks into the store.  I thought asking for a picture but was in my work clothes and decided not to bother him.  I leave to go pick up Junior … what I didn’t know was that I dropped my wallet.  When I got home about 10 minutes later my neighbor knocks on door.  She told me I would never guess who brought this to her …I had no clue, but when she said Marshawn Lynch I was shocked!  I guess I was so distracted by the van pulling up I dropped my wallet.  My neighbor said Marshawn, Richardo Lockette and a cameraman were headed to Marysville Pilchuck and decided to bring it to me on the way there.  My neighbor tried asking for a pic but they politely refused and their only concern was that I got my wallet back.  I can’t thank them guys enough for bringing it back and for making my neighbor a very happy lady for getting to a chance to meet them.”

While we were sceptical initially, the tale appears to be true as Marshawn retweeted this thankful message from Jason Lynch.
