Marshawn Lynch goes Beast Mode, receives red card in charity soccer match

Marshawn Lynch goes Beast Mode, receives red card in charity soccer match

Marshawn Lynch sat out all last season, so Beast Mode may require a little more training than your other National Football League running backs. Organized by former Seattle Sounders and Portland Timbers player Steve Zakuani, the game featured Major League Soccer players, former NFL star (and soccer fan) Chad Johnson and Lynch. In Zakuani's charity soccer match during the Fourth of July weekend, Marshawn Lynch did what he did best: he ran the ball.

Lynch entered the game wearing flip flops and socks.

It was all in good fun, mind you, because it's always in good fun with Marshawn Lynch.




Lynch received a red card for his antics, and didn't take his punishment kindly.

As the tweeted photo notes, kids can show up Thursday at Lynch's Beast Mode Apparel store in downtown Oakland to land the free tickets. The former Seahawks running back leaped up to snatch the red card from the referee's hand before punting the soccer ball to the opposing side of the field, losing a flip flop in the process.
