The NFL is better with Marshawn Lynch in it. After a year-long siesta, Lynch returned to the NFL this year in the silver and black of his hometown Oakland Raiders, and he’s clearly thrilled to be here. Prior to Sunday’s game he gave away free Skittles throughout the Bay Area, and then he scored his first NFL touchdown since 2015. And when the Raiders went up 35-13 on the New York Jets, well … Marshawn just couldn’t contain himself any longer, as you can see above.
Per local reports, Lynch danced as the stadium around him cheered him on:

Look, that stadium is a dump, and the Raiders are somehow managing to screw over two cities at once. But Marshawn Lynch is a national treasure, and we should treat him as such.
