Marshawn Lynch might want to stick to playing football.
In a Twitter video tweeted Thursday by SportsCenter, the legendary NFL running back was wearing an Avalanche practice jersey and trying his hand at hockey. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
As I’m sure you can imagine, he didn’t exactly look stellar. You can give the video a watch below.

I don’t really know why, but I’ve always found big people on ice skates to be hilarious. Again, I don’t really know why, but I always laugh when I see it.
Marshawn Lynch is a gigantic human. He’s one of the biggest humans on the planet, and that was obvious to anyone who watched him in the NFL.
Now, he laced up the skates and gave hockey a shot. At least he had high energy, which we all know is half the battle when playing sports.

Having said all of that, I think it’s pretty safe to assume that Lynch is never going to make the NHL. He didn’t exactly look like a natural, but that’s okay.
He gave it a shot, which is a hell of a lot more than most people do when it comes to getting on the ice.
