A 17-year-old McDonald’s employee in Dallas was lucky enough to be visited by one of the best McDonald’s fans ever — Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch.
Lynch — who is known for his deep love of Skittles and for his contempt for the NFL’s publicity deal which requires players to conduct interviews on media days, whether they want to or not — was more than happy to use his good fortune to help out a fan. After Downs told him that he eventually wanted to study fashion and own his own boutique, Lynch handed over $500 in cash.
“If you're serious about getting those shoes, here’s some money to help you get ‘em,” Lynch told Downs. “My job is to continue to see you grow.”
