The last time the Saints visited Seattle for a playoff game, Marshawn Lynch’s game-winning 67-yard touchdown run caused what has been described as an earthquake, even if it wasn’t an actual earthquake in the strictest sense of the term. But people like to believe what they like to believe and the incident ended up being one of those instances where it’s been better to print the legend.

Of course, there are many other things to celebrate about Marshawn Lynch, including but not limited to his penchant for downing Skittles on the sidelines to give him energy on the field. And that’s why CenturyLink Field on Saturday will be serving a burger dedicated to Marshawn called “The Beast”.

[It] features two pieces of bacon, two slices of cheddar cheese, two hamburger patties, “several slices of ham,” onion rings, lettuce, tomato and red onion.

And on the side: fries and Skittles. Just crazy enough to be a tasty complement? Perhaps, though I have a feeling a lot of people who get it will save the Skittle to fling in celebration if Marshawn gets in the end zone.
