Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch didn't have much to say to the media in the week leading up to the Super Bowl, so it shouldn't come as a big surprise that he didn't have much to say after the game.

Lynch kept his postgame press conference to a concise 45 words, but we did learn a few things about him. For instance, Lynch was asked if Sunday's 43-8 Super Bowl victory against the Broncos was the best day of his life.

"Next to being born," Lynch said. "Dream come true."

Beast Mode was also pretty excited about scoring the game's first touchdown, a 1-yard run in the second quarter that gave Seattle a 15-0 lead. "Kicked it all off, boss," Lynch said.

After the game, Lynch was one of the few Seahawks players -- actually, probably the only one -- who didn't celebrate on the field. That's normal for Lynch, though. "They know who I feel about it," Lynch said. "This has been a tradition since I came, since forever. It's just what I do. Everybody knows it. They respect it."

In his first Super Bowl appearance ever, Lynch finished with 39 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries. Now Lynch just needs to hope that when he gets back to Seattle, the city's Skittles crisis will be over.
