In Seattle, Bob Condotta noted Marshawn Lynch has put his "Take Care of Yo' Chicken" quote on T-shirts and hoodies, available on his Beastmodeonline.com site." The offerings are "presumably also available at his stores in Seattle and Oakland." The hoodie "sells for $70, a T-shirt for $39.95." Lynch's stores also "sell clothing with the phrase 'Unfinished Business,' which is what he said was the theme of his return to the Seahawks in late December." Lynch also recently "launched a line of clothing with Australian colors and logo with 100% of profits said to be going to help efforts there to combat fires" (SEATTLE TIMES, 1/15).
