Skittles Thanks Marshawn Lynch For The Exposure With 24-Month Supply

Saturday December 3rd, 2011

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch had an impressive game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night, rushing for 148 yards and 2 memorable, tackle-breaking runs for touchdowns.  Equally memorable, though, was a sideline shot from the television broadcast showing the 215-pound back downing Skittles candy -- a shot that has earned Lynch the gratitude of the candy's maker, according to Darren Rovell of CNBC.

"Skittles is offering Marshawn Lynch a 24-month free supply & a customized dispenser for his locker for last night's exposure," Rovell tweeted Friday morning.
