Former Seattle Sounders FC forward Steve Zakuani puts on an annual charity soccer match with star-studded rosters. This year's even drew two NFL mega stars, Chad Ochocinco and Seattle Seahawks legend Marshawn Lynch.

"Beastmode's" two minutes in the match (if it was even that long) went exactly how you might expect it to go.

While it shouldn’t come as any surprise, seeing a grown giant man enter a soccer match against pros while donning a pair of those comfy massaging adidas slip-on sandals still made us laugh. Marcus Trufant says it best in this clip with the laughter that follows: “Beastmode has just been introduced and he comes into the game with flip-flops”:

LOL indeed, Marcus. So while Beastmode had his flippy floppies, were you streaming live or at Kinkos straight flipping copies?

Marshawn Lynch plays in one dang soccer match and is shown immediate red. While likely improvised/choreographed at halftime - once he finished the nachos he bought at the concession stand in the first half seen below - Beastmode made his stamp on the game over the course of 60 seconds and lit the internet on fireworks.

A star-studded group of pros, friends, and fans took the field at Starfire Stadium to help Steve Zakuani, a former Sounders FC stud and current broadcaster, raise money to put kids through school. You can help out his charity, Kingdom Hope, and their goal of getting 50 scholarships over the next five year with a donation today.
