And it made me do things I didn't know I could do. Listen to four minutes of yours truly under the influence of Lin-Mania.
Not so special audio guests (because they aren't real guests) include the SNL intro guy, Linda Cohn, Gorilla Monsoon and Jesse the Body Ventura. And it's all under 5 minutes!
In other Lin related news, Jeremy Lin says his faith in God triggered "Lin-Sanity". This will make a fraction of the worldwide audience pissed off for reasons Willy Wonka might be able to explain.
A quote from the story: "I'm not playing to prove anything to anybody," Lin said. "That affected my game last year and my joy last year. With all the media attention, all the love from the fans (in the Bay Area), I felt I needed to prove myself. Prove that I'm not a marketing tool, I'm not a ploy to improve attendance. Prove I can play in this league. But I've surrendered that to God. I'm not in a battle with what everybody else thinks anymore."
In other Lin related news, his high school coach says race hindered opportunities for Lin along the way. Okay so we've got religion and race checked off so far. That's good work.
Lin was named Eastern Conference player of the week. Some other guy won it in the West. That's a joke. Kind of.
Jason Whitlock apologized -- kind of -- for a Tweet he posted about Asian men having small penises. If you're keeping score at home, we've got race, religion and sex cornered, with a little bit of basketball. Let's keep it going.
Wait, has anybody asked Floyd Mayweather what he thinks about this?
Jeremy Lin is redefining his country as told by TIME Magazine.
Finally, China wants a piece of this Lin action. Sure he was born in America. Who cares?
