The Pacific Northwest is a weird place. We stay away from Portlandia and the like because we know there are strange happenings afoot.
But sometimes whatever goes on up there crosses over with sports, and we have no choice but to write about it, slack-jawed:
Marshawn Lynch signed on to play a role in a movie being filmed in Seattle. It's called Matt's Chance. It's about a mid-20-something cowboy who's betrayed by his girlfriend. It sends him into a downward spiral. The movie tackles all the things Matt is going through, from the mafia to corrupt bankers to even God himself.
Lynch's co-stars include the 6 Million Dollar Man, Lee Majors. Plus, Edward Furlong from Terminator 2, Point Break's Gary Busey, and Margot Kidder of Superman fame also co-star in the movie.
Can we open our eyes yet? Is the nightmare over? Or is it just beginning?
