Marshawn Lynch Saved $50 Million Because He’s ‘Extremely Cheap & ‘Lives Like He’s Broke’

You wouldn’t think a guy who drives around in a white Lambo with accompanying velvet ropes for parking and has a fish tank in his house complete with an underwater Hennessy bottle is a penny pincher, but apparently that’s the case.

It was reported around the time of former (we think) Seattle Seahawks’ running back Marshawn Lynch retirement that Lynch had saved approximately $47 million over the course of his playing career, spending not a dime of it, choosing only to spend income from endorsements, sponsorships, etc.

This week, Lynch’s cousin, Mistah F.A.B., confirmed those very reports about Marshawn’s thriftiness as well as adding in a few more insights into the very introverted running back’s life via this podcast:

“He lives like he’s broke,”. “He still lives like, ‘Cuz, let me get $10.’ ‘Oooh, $10? Cuz, I don’t know. I don’t got it right now. How much is them? Oooh, $40? No, let me get the $15 ones.’ Like, that’s how he is. You’ll be like, ‘Bro, are you serious?’ Like, we’ll go out to eat or go somewhere and he’ll be like, ‘How much is the whomp whomp? Oooh, hell no! $60? Oh no, no. Let me get the $25 one right there, though, the one on the side of it. Yup, that one’s good!’ I’m like, ‘Cuz, you are a cheap ass hoe, bro.’ That’s just how he is. You learn to love him.”

It’s a beauty because he shows us how to save money, how to keep things going, and he’s a symbol of hope for us.”

We’re sure a lot of young NFL-ers can learn from this guy, both on the field, and off.

  5. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  6. My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
