Before he was the guy who repeatedly told reporters, "I'm just here so I won't get fined," at Super Bowl Media Day. Before becoming the legend who cemented his status as Beast Mode with a ridiculous 67-yard touchdown run against the New Orleans Saints in his first career playoff game in 2011. Before all of that, Marshawn Lynch was known as the University of California, Berkeley running back who celebrated a victory by ghost riding an injury cart.
While playing for UC Berkeley in 2006, Lynch weaved through Washington's defense, scoring the game-winning touchdown in overtime from 22 yards out.
Then, out of nowhere, Beast Mode showed up on the field, riding in the injury cart, and swerving around with one hand on the wheel and the other hand just chilling on the seat. Lynch considers that moment to be one of his favorite college experiences, telling SI.com, "My favorite college experience was probably leaving college. But the Ghost Ride was up there, too."
On Saturday, November 5, when UC Berkeley faces Washington at home in California Memorial Stadium, the first 10,000 fans will be able to get their hands on a bobblehead that commemorates the 10-year anniversary of Lynch's Ghost Ride. Earlier today, the Cal Bears released a video, unveiling the bobblehead with Dr. Dre's "The Next Episode" playing in the background.
