6 Hard To Knock Over Things That Are Easier To Knock Over Than Marshawn Lynch

Even if you never watch football and the only game you tuned in for was Sunday's Super Bowl, a few football-related things were probably clear to you: Cris Collinsworth has a voice that is impossible to do an impression of, Russell Wilson and Tom Brady are, like, crazy good at throwing, and Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch cannot be knocked over.

OK, he can be knocked over, it's just insanely hard because he is unbelievably amazing at dodging tackles, zig-zagging, and spinning around to escape the grasps of massive men. If a 200+ pound man threw himself at the ground not even at me but near me, I would scream and definitely let go of the football (you know, the one I was inexplicably holding for the point of this hypothetical situation), but somehow, Marshawn Lynch just keeps on going, oftentimes into the end zone. It probably helps that he is also a 200+ pound man.

That said, Lynch not falling over is one of the highlights of any Seahawks game, not just the Super Bowl, so I thought it'd be fun to come up with a list of hard to knock over things that are easier to knock over than him. Ya know, so you can toss out the perfect metaphor come next season. Just think, you'll be able to catch everyone off-guard when you exclaim, "Damn! He's harder to knock over than a cat!" (Sure, everyone might laugh at you, but that's cool. At least you'll be right.)

Weebles wobble but they don't fall down.

Marshawn Lynch doesn't wobble.

An Elephant

I imagine elephants are very hard to knock over, but if they really tried, several humans could probably do it if they came together in the effort. (Please don't try this!) Several humans have come together and have still not been able to knock over Marshawn Lynch.

A Cat

Cats are very quick on their feet and steady, but, come on, you've definitely seen your cat attempt some crazy jump only to fail and leave you wishing you'd recorded the moment. (You coulda been YouTube famous!) I think the video above as compared to the video below makes my point for me.

The Ban On Cuba-U.S. Relations


Oh, you thought the ban on Cuba-U.S. relations was soooo sturdy? IT'S ALREADY BEEN KNOCKED DOWN. (With some technicalities, but we don't need to get into that right now.) Lynch is still going.

Katy Perry

How appropriate for the occasion! In "Roar", Katy Perry sings, "You held me down, but I got up." She makes it pretty clear in the song (through lots and lots of cliches) that she cannot be knocked down — at least not for good. But she did get knocked down in the first place, so, ya know...

The Media


The media is resilient. It's been around for a really long time, guys. Not only is the media hard to knock down, Marshawn Lynch has made great strides in doing so. So meta! (Or something...)
