Candy Wire

Marshawn_Lynch_Nike_Skittles.jpgSeattle Seahawk Marshawn Lynch's fondness for rainbow colored candy just netted him custom-made Nike shoes that have given him super powers, says Deadspin. Per the sports blog, "Before Saturday, no one had rushed for 100 yards against the 49ers defense, and no one had run for a touchdown against the 49ers defense. Before Saturday, nobody had worn Skittles sneakers against the 49ers defense. Correlation is not necessarily causation, but this time it totally was, say scienticians." Even Lynch's Skittles-enhanced super powers couldn't produce a win for the Seahawks though. [Deadspin]
