Marshawn Lynch has a great friend in Seattle Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson.
Robinson saved Lynch when the Seattle Seahawks running back’s media obligation Wednesday started to go downhill (“I’m just here so I won’t get fined, boss”) by grabbing a microphone and answering questions for Beast Mode. Robinson ended every answer with “boss,” just as Lynch would have.
Lynch spent just six minutes and 21 seconds answering reporters at Super Bowl XLVIII Media Day, which had the Pro Football Writers Association of America ticked off. Lynch’s session with reporters Wednesday lasted less than seven minutes, as well. Lynch nearly went all season without talking to Seattle’s media.
Robinson has experience getting shunned by Lynch. He attempted to interview Lynch multiple times when the fullback had a YouTube channel called “The Real Rob Report.” If anything, it just gave Lynch more experience evading the media.
Check out how Robinson keeps Lynch’s media session light before it takes a turn for the awkward once again at the end.
