Dun dun dun, dun dundun, dun dundun … boss.
Just in time for the start of the NFL Playoffs, the Seattle Seahawks have seized on the movie of the moment with a meme that celebrates the return of star running back Marshawn Lynch.
The Beast Awakens image showed up on the Seahawks Facebook page on Monday night, linking to a story on the team’s website that said Lynch has returned after missing seven games due to abdominal surgery. Lynch’s face is photoshopped into a hooded picture of Star Wars: The Force Awakens bad boy Kylo Ren.
Lynch hasn’t played since a Nov. 15 Seahawks loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Coach Pete Carroll said Monday that the bruising back is “ready to go” when Seattle travels to Minnesota to take on the Vikings in a wildcard playoff game on Sunday.
