Marshawn Lynch missing as Seahawks camp begins

According to Twitter user @chuckbrezina, Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was in Oakland, Calif. on Monday filming a movie.

But that's burying the real story when you see how and what Lynch parked.

Now that's Beast Mode. All about that first-class action, boss.

And here's a pic of him outside the car:

You might not be Lynch's biggest fan, and he can sometimes make himself more difficult to like than he needs to, but when a guy parks his car (one that cost a few nickels short of $400K, mind you) out on the streets of Oakland, bookended by two velvet ropes as if his car is a nightclub, well, then you just say it: The dude is an original.

(Functional questions here: Does Lynch travel everywhere with those ropes or were they provided for him by the movie folks who might have daily access to such things? And if they are Lynch's personal ropes, do they fit into that car's trunk? Have they ever failed to prevent another car encroaching on his car's space? It makes the mind wander ...)

Thanks, SB Nation, for bringing this to our attention. Brilliant stuff.
