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

"I'm geared up. I got my Momma Lynch on," she said. "Marshawn has worked hard."

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.

"When (the 49ers) went to the Super Bowl last year I did cheer for them cause they're Bay Area," she said.

Her son bleeds blue, but his heart is Bay Area strong.

Marshawn's brother, David, is also looking forward to Sunday's big game.

"I'm looking for him to have a good game," he said. "I don't think their defense is tough enough to stop 'em."
