A Summary of Linsanity

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Basketball, Featured, Sports | Leave a comment

“[I]f you can’t look at Jeremy Lin and see why America is the greatest country in the world, well, then you don’t understand America.” – Jay Kang in Bill Simmons’ Linsanity Mailbag

 

I first saw the name Jeremy Lin on some tweets.  I didn’t pay much attention.  Then I found highlights from his first couple of games set to a rap song.  I was on board.

Then the “flash in the pan” lasted a little bit longer.  The Knicks kept winning.  Jeremy Lin kept leading, giving us the best live-action Disney movie since Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tony Danza, Danny Glover, and Angel Doc Brown gave us Angels in the Outfield.  And the movie’s not over yet! AND JEREMY LIN MIGHT JUST BE AN ANGEL!

After he took out the Lakers in primetime, I bought a Jeremy Lin t-shirt jersey. I consumed all the media I could about him.  I told everyone I know about him. People who don’t like the NBA asked me more and more about him. Writers aptly pointed out what the GOP could learn from him.  It has become a story through which preachers spread the Gospel.  A unique take on the “Race in America” debate pops up everywhere, from the realm of sports to the topic of Asian-American faith traditions.  He pops up on John Piper’s blog.  He is humble on and off the court while firmly stating his faith.  But then, he cold-bloodedly calls off his team for an iso, and drains a game-winner confidently.

Tuesday’s With Tony: Meet Tony!

Posted on by Colin Stovall in Basketball, Featured, Sports, Tuesday's With Tony | 1 Comment

I remember my first time like it was yesterday. Filled with excitement and unaware of the wonders this new adventure would bring, I dove right in throwing caution to the wind.

Early on I learned to avoid athletes on Twitter because of their incessant self promotion. But then, Tony happened. Yes, Tony Allen joined the Twitter world and his viral stream of consciousness was birthed. Unprepared for what Tony was capable of, I began to follow his tweets. I excused his first tweets and attributed them to amateurism with a smart phone and the concept of Twitter. But things did not change, and I began to search for the meanings in Tony’s tweets.

Unfamiliar to the use of the single “)” and multiple “!”, I mulled over Tony’s tweets like Benjamin Franklin Gates and the Declaration of Independence.

Your honor, I would like to present Exhibit A: Read more
