The Time list of 2012’s 100 Most Influential People omitted any black athletes and praised Jeremy Lin for his lack of “bling.” What’s going on here?
It’s for Time’s list of the world’s 100 Most Influential People, and it’s really really stupid.
Next season, the Knicks might have to decide between Steve Nash and Jeremy Lin as their starting point guard. Also, a baby tiger could be in the mix. Who even knows? That’s just how the world works.
A torn Lin-niscus may have sidelined Jeremy Lin, but at least we can still commission performance painters to dance-brush his visage at half court. Leonardo Da Linci anyone?
Did the Knicks hide Lin’s injury to sell more playoff tickets? Who cares?
Social media has limits, Jeremy!
“Once it’s fixed, it’s fixed. It’s a simple surgery. It’s not an end of my career.” There is a chance Lin could return for the playoffs, should the Knicks make it that far and get out of the first round.
What do you talk about with the guy who got fired for accidentally referring to you as a racial epithet?
Jeremy Lin means different things to different people, clearly. Keep your eyes open for Lin and Landry Fields’ uber-nerdy handshake.
It turns out it might be the most religious handshake in sports too. Who knew?
The New York Knicks’ coach has resigned, and Papa has a few things to say about it.
You’re a professional athlete playing in New York City, you’ve lost six straight games, and everything with your catch phrase on it is marked down 50% at the Times Square Duane Reade. Your popularity is waning at best.
Or “Why I Am Disappointed In The Diminishing Craziness Of The Artist Formerly Known As Ron Artest.”
Can someone please explain what is happening with Jeremy Lin and Steve Novak here? Anyone? Landry? (via @LandryFields)
I think we’ve reached the saturation point.
“And as his legend grew, soon all the women screamed Jeremy! I want you LINside me!” What in the actual fuck? (Also why is Amare on his knees watching?)
The bidding for a pair Lin’s boxer briefs from his Harvard days starts at $1,000.
The controversial Jeremy Lin-inspired flavor was originally vanilla frozen yogurt with swirls of lychee honey and fortune cookie pieces. They recently removed the fortune cookies. It’s currently only available at their Harvard Square store.
“Like an Asian Tebow.” Have I ever mentioned I’m a huge Pearl Jam fan? Have I also ever mentioned I’m 3 billion-years-old?
New York’s newest star has finally arrived now that he has a “Hey Girl” Tumblr of his own. Apparently the ladies love him.
There is finally a website for people who want to know if Jeremy Lin has a game, but don’t want to deal with the absolute headache of going to NBA.com, ESPN.com, or any other sports website.” That’s a demographic that exists, right?
Hmmm, I wonder if an athlete has ever been on the SI cover twice in a row before?
Can we please stop it with the Asian jokes? I know, I know…the guy holding it is Asian, but that’s hardly an excuse.
Was the wordplay really that irresistible? Someone’s getting fired. [Ed. note: According to Deadspin, ESPN has already apologized.]
FAIL ALERT: Clueless FSU Sorority Girl wants to date Jerry Linn (Jeremy Lin) - The non-existent black, super bowl winning Giants player.
Reverend Al Sharpton is caught up in Linsanity. Does this mean the meme is dead?
We’re through the looking glass here people.
Spike Lee can hardly contain his excitement. Who could blame him?
