    Delisa Lynch is on her way to Seattle to se her son, Seahawks star running back Marshawn Lynch, play against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Marshawn is born and raised in Oakland. And even though his mother wears her Seahawks jersey every chance she gets, she did have a confession to tell about the team she is supposed to hate.
