Former NFL running back and Seahawks legend Marshawn Lynch appeared on ESPN’s broadcast of Cal football’s game against Washington on Saturday night. While being interviewed by Tiffany Blackmon, Lynch, who played three seasons at Cal, let out a profane 15-second sequence that appeared to beat the network’s censors.
“I’m from the Bay Area, but when I look around the stands and I see these motherf–kers – oops!” Lynch said, eyes wide and covering his mouth. “I mean these stands…”
Warning: graphic language
After that, static noise cut into the broadcast for a few seconds as Justin Forsett, a former NFL running back and Lynch’s teammate at Cal, looked on in amusement.
The static eventually cut out, and Lynch went back to talking — with plenty of time to drop the word “s–t” into the conversation.
Lynch and Forsett were both at the game to be inducted to the California’s Athletic Hall of Fame. The Golden Bears lost to the Washington Huskies, 28-21.
Lynch, 36, was arrested in Las Vegas in on Aug. 9 on a DUI charge. Earlier this month, Amazon’s vice president of Global Sports Video Marie Donoghue said on the “Marchand & Ourand Sports Media Podcast” that Lynch was hired to be a part of Amazon’s “Thursday Night Football” coverage.
