Yesterday on Twitter, Sportaphile mentioned an amazing blog entry by Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch, where he is holding some “I’m ya daddi boi toy give a way” which includes “lots and lots of toyzzzzzzzz”. Amazed by the content, I was browsing around the rest of the blog and noticed he had his own line of merchandise. Then I saw it, a Beast Mode t-shirt…but it was sold out everywhere on the internets. However, during my search for it I came across a tidbit that mentioned it was for sale at Tops Supermarkets in Western New York. In a matter of seconds I scrambled out of the house. Once I got to the local Tops, I saw it, a wire hanger was holding the medium sized holy grail amongst other Buffalo sports teams apparel on a really wobbly rack. As I paid at the self-checkout (I didn’t want people judging me for buying apparel at supermarket (who needs streetwear boutiques?), I contemplated acquiring a pair of Zubaz pants to match.. I quickly realized that would be going too far.
It should be noted: The Bills aren’t even my favorite team, but Marshawn has really impressed me this year (its hard to avoid Bills games around here).
