Marshawn Lynch was known for hitting people in the mouth on the football field, and making them feel his wrath The same could be said for the shot named after him.
The Hey 19 pub in Torrance, California is home to the “Marshawn Lynch Shot,” and our Worst Shots Team is still wondering why the former running back would ever drink it.
Bartender Dennis Martin said the shot came about when a group of his customers went out drinking in Seattle, where Lynch used to play. The party-goers said they spotted Lynch at a bar and tried buying him shots. The story goes that no matter what they tried to buy him, the only thing he wanted to drink was a mixture of Hennessy and Patron.
The two drinks are barely tolerable apart, but mixed together, really make for a bad time.
Our own Sean Fahmy and Rudy Chaney tried the shot and it forced Sean to make this face:
“This looks like very, very, healthy piss,” Sean said. While Rudy asked, “Why anyone would ever want to drink this, I don’t understand.”
The craziest thing, is that not a lot of work goes into it. It’s two terrible drinks, straight out of a Tupac song, mixed together. Simple, yet deadly.
Why Marshawn would like this shot is a mystery, but we have to believe it probably contributed to his retirement last year.
