Russell Wilson is heading back to Seattle for the first time as the Broncos QB after he spent the first ten seasons of his career with the Seahawks.
He’s expected to get a warm welcome when he takes the field, but he might get viciously booed, and it wouldn’t surprise anyone if he sheds a tear or two.
This is a pretty big game for Russ and the Broncos, and as they say, if you look good, you play good. Russ took that to heart with his pregame outfit. It’s a fern platinum green suit with a bowtie, and he looks very clean.
We’ll see if the look pays off tonight. With that being said, please don’t show this to Channing Crowder.
Russ looks like Marvin Berry from “Back to the Future.”
Marvin Berry was the lead singer of Marvin Berry and the Starlighters. He was the cousin of Chuck Berry.
Marvin and his band performed at the Enchantment Under the Sea dance in 1955.
After finishing a set, Marvin and the rest of the band went to their car for a smoke break. While they were in the car, Marty McFly was thrown into the trunk by Biff Tannen’s gang. The band chased the gang away, but the trunk was closed with the keys locked inside. In an effort to free Marty, Marvin used a screwdriver to open the trunk, but badly cut his left hand when the screwdriver slipped. Marvin was left unable to play the guitar for the rest of the night.
Marty gladly played the guitar for the band. After singing “Earth Angel”, Marvin asked if Marty would like to do one more number; something that “really cooks”. Marty agreed to play one more song and chose “Johnny B. Goode”. Initially impressed, Marvin called his cousin Chuck, holding out the receiver at arm’s length so as to allow him to hear the “new sound”. By the time Chuck was listening, however, Marty had segued into playing heavy metal, a “new sound” that nobody was quite ready for in 1955. (What Chuck thought of the “new sound” remains unrecorded.)
Not surprisingly, Marvin was left somewhat bewildered as Marty handed back the guitar.
It is unknown what happened to Marvin after 1955, but he more than likely continued on with his band until at least the 1970s.
