Marshawn Lynch is just about that Planet Hollywood, boss.
About 48 hours before Super Bowl XLVIII, Lynch signed autographs at the Planet Hollywood (1540 Broadway, New York) a few blocks north of Times Square in New York on Friday.
Lynch appeared at the entertainment-themed restaurant with fellow Oakland native Josh Johnson, the reserve quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals at 6 p.m. EST on Friday, according to a flyer from the eatery (below).
The pair was joined by Jennifer Montana, wife of Joe Montana. Wait…What?
See, Mrs. Montana designed a “Beast Mode” necklace for Lynch, which he donated for display at Planet Hollywood. Lynch and Johnson stuck around to sign autographs after the presentation.
Duplicates of the “Beast Mode” necklace are on sale in the gift shop and at Montana’s website. Eighty percent of the proceeds go toward Lynch’s charity, Fam 1st Family Foundation, and the Montana family’s charity, the Four Rings Foundation.
We were hoping to see media members munching some Cap’n Crunch Chicken while waiting in line to talk to Lynch. And for him to ignore them.
UPDATE: Here are some pictures from Friday’s event.
