While there are no real football games to discuss yet for the Seattle Seahawks (not for 2023, at least, obviously), there is always something to talk about. Things like, who is better: Tariq Woolen or Sauce Gardner? But are we discussing that today? Nope, that will need to be saved until another day.
There are, however, a couple of really fun items to talk about. Let’s start with offseason acquisition Julian Love having ties to a really cool Seattle restaurant chain. I say “chain” but not in a McDonald’s sense.
Love has family that immigrated from Cuba to Seattle three decades ago and started Paseo. The first Paseo opened in 1994 and was started by Love’s great uncle (his grandfather’s brother), Lorenzo Lorenzo. The business went bankrupt in 2014.

However, some of Love’s cousins opened Un Bien in 2015. Like Paseo, Un Bien serves Caribbean sandwiches that are so good you’ll probably want to pretend you are ordering for an entire family when really the sandwiches are just for you. Maybe they should even give Julian Love a sponsorship.
In your weekly Beast Mode news, former Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch will be a part of a movie called “Bottoms” that comes out in August. The movie is a teen comedy and Lynch will play a high school teacher who will help lead a fight club-type group of kids that have been bullied to take revenge.
The movie will be rated R but seems to take on issues related to gender equality and social norms. Of course, 12s all know how funny Lynch can be, and be funny very naturally. Just Lynch being himself will likely lead to intentional laughs. It could be that Lynch is a bit of comic relief in the film where the story arch seems to imply it will have some teen angst and drama involved.
