I’ve always found the week after the Super Bowl somewhat bland. I mean, the Super Bowl is such a climax for much of the sports world, and anything that comes after it just doesn’t seem as exciting or big. But boy, basketball took that notion and was like, “sorry, I’m not sorry” this week.
First of all, this Jeremy Lin kid is legit, no? Alright, yeah I never followed him before this week either, but how could you not respect a great underdog story? From undrafted to starting point guard in Madison Square Garden, aka the mecca of professional basketball. That’s fucking awesome. I’m looking forward to tonight’s matchup between him and the Lakers. #Linsanity #SuperLintendo #Linning
Then, there was the already classic battle in college ball between UNC and Lydia’s alma mater, Duke. Austin Rivers was so clutch. See Lydia’s reaction below.

So, here’s a toast to a great week of sports and hopefully an even better weekend for the rest of us non-professional athletes. What’s everybody up to?
