During the Media Day prior to Super Bowl 48, Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch wasn’t much a fan of participating. He was focused solely on beating the Denver Broncos that week, which they ultimately did, 43-8.
However if you’ll remember at one point, NFL Network analyst Deion Sanders did catch up with Lynch as he was trying his best to be incognito, and although he wasn’t fully participating in the event, Lynch delivered probably the most memorable quote of that entire week.
From that moment on for the rest of the week, “I’m just ’bout that action, boss.” became all the craze leading up to the game where Mynch and the Seahawks showed the entire world that they were indeed about that action.
On Wednesday the team took their trip to the White House to get a tour and meet with President Barack Obama. While speaking to everyone in attendance, even President Obama referenced the memorable quote when talking about one of the best running backs in the league.
Obama: “I appreciate Marshawn Lynch’s approach to the press. I could take some tips. He’s jus about that action.” #SuperBowlChamps

There have been songs remixed to that interview as well as t-shirts made, but nothing can beat the POTUS referencing something that you said.
