New York Knicks
How bad a play can a professional basketball player make?
For weeks I had eagerly anticipated the arrival of March 14, 2012, when I would attend my first New York Knicks game of the season at Madison Square Garden. I bought the tickets a month before, after the Knicks had won five games in a row with Jeremy Lin leading the charge. I wasn’t sure if Linsanity would last, but I figured the Knicks were on solid footing for the rest of the year. As a hardened life-long Knicks fan, of course, I should have known to prepare for the worst. As I entered the arena, the Knicks franchise was once again in a familiar state of disarray.
Now that Jeremy Lin has performed the unlikely feat of saving the New York Knicks from another dismal season, we thought it would be only fair for him to take his talents beyond the basketball court. Indeed, if the young Harvard graduate’s Lintastic powers of Linprovement are as special as advertised, there’s no reason he should be Lingering around the NBA.
She's sounding defiant again. I don't begrudge Hillary the right to stay in, particularly given her milder tone towards Obama of late. But I still don't understand the argument I heard again on the Sunday shows that she somehow owes it to her millions of passionate supporters to stay in. I'm a passionate supporter of the New York Knicks, but once it becomes clear they're going to get blown out, I understand if they bench their stars (not that they have any) to avoid injury. My passion isn't going to magically enable them to hit five-pointers in the fourth quarter, after all.
