Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has now completed the press conference trifecta.
From a media availability consisting mainly of “yeah” answers to one filled with “nope,” Lynch opted for good manners after Sunday night’s win over the Cardinals.
Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times has posted the transcript of the session, with every question containing an expression of gratitude.
On his 79-yard touchdown run: “Thank you.”
On how his stomach was feeling: “Thanks for asking.”
On what he saw on the long touchdown run: “Thanks for asking.”
Asked again about the touchdown run: “Thanks for asking.”
“What’s that?” the reporter said.
“Thanks for asking.”
“Can you talk about the run?” the reporter said.
“I know. I said, ‘Thank you for asking.’ I appreciate it.”
The “thank you” routine continued a bit longer before the reporters gave up. Which clearly is what Lynch is trying to get them to do. Eventually, they simply won’t try to ask him any questions at all.
