According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, Marshawn Lynch filed to trademark the phrase "I'm just here so I won't get fined" with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. During the Super Bowl XLIX media day, Lynch fulfilled the four and a half minute requirement by replying to every reporter's question with the now infamous response.
"We heard from our fans and so many of them were saying that they wanted that phrase on the clothing," Chris Bevans, who runs Lynch's "Beast Mode" apparel line, told ESPN.com. "This is just listening to the marketplace."
Bevans adds that shirts and sweatshirts incorporating the phrase should be available on the Beast Mode website "within the next month."
It should also be the perfect choice for when you're searching for the right clothing to wear for that job you absolutely hate. Right, Lynch?
