When you hear the term “Beast Mode” used in the context of sports, you can only think of one person — Marshawn Lynch. Well, either him or LeBron James really.

This year, Marshawn Lynch has been a straight beast for one of the top teams in the NFL, the Seattle Seahawks. After eight games this season, he’s racked up 201 rushing yards to go along with 6 TDs and 181 receiving yards with a score, as well.

But it wasn’t always just winning and touchdowns for the 27-year-old Oakland, California, native. He started off his career with the Buffalo Bills where they had some of the most futile seasons in recent memory.

Marshawn had no idea what he was in for when he landed in New York back in 2007, and even admitted in a recent interview that he thought Buffalo was in the Manhattan. His geography was way off and he had a nice little surprise waiting for him — snow. Cali kids don’t get that.

Marshawn was on E:60 last night when he made this admission and more. Beast Mode is more than just a monster on the field, he’s the man off of it too. This video below proves it.
