Linsanity Reached My Island!

I have been reading about the Linsanity fever that took over New York, the whole United States, China, and Taiwan for about two weeks now but I did not pay attention to it as it didn't have impact on my life. However, this past few days, I heard my teenager boy talking about Jeremy Lin, the person guilty for the Linsanity, who is now the star player or "the" Cinderalla in the NBA right now. Most of the kids in the neighborhood play basketball but I never thought that they'll be also interested in what's happening in the NBA.

And as if the Linsanity hasn't spread to my household, it has also made way to the stores in this tiny island (well, not really tiny..hehehe) that when I accompanied my aunt to buy office chairs, the clerks in the furniture shop were all busy watching Lin in the latest New York Knicks match against Dallas Mavericks.

I think Jeremy Lin's story gives hope to every Asian basketball who are not really tall but talented, to be able to play in NBA and be a star too. But what made me impressed about him is that Lin has a degree, he even went to Harvard and at the same time play. If only all basketball players, or all players would be like him. He's every parent's dream. Don't you agree?
