An undrafted player from Harvard to a starring role for the New York Knicks in Madison Square Garden. Lin-Sanity has arrived! Jeremy Lin's run is unexpected and unpredictable. He has played in 7 games, starting 6 of them, and has taken the country by storm. He has averaged 24.4 points, 9.1 assists and 4.0 rebounds per game....all without superstar Carmello Anthony. From February 4 to February 12, Lin had the top-selling jersey at NBA.com (which shipped to 22 countries). In two weeks, Lin has become a trending topic on social media. He had virtually no twitter followers to 380,00. Lin-Sane? Yes! Almost as crazy as Tebow-Mania!
Who would have thought the two most intriguing sports stories lately are Tim Tebow and Jeremy Lin? Not this girl for sure! I am not a New York Knick or Denver Bronco fan....but these two are great players to watch. They are respectable, faith believing, young men. They are what sports is about. Wouldn't you rather have these two as your children's role models than some of their other co-workers? I sure would.
Hopefully when their "winning" stops, the sports world won't forget about them. I know I won't.
Until next time friends!
