As happens in so many relationships, Lin burst onto the scene, was idolized (and maybe idealized), only to move on. We're in shock. We're coping. But in the back of our minds, we can't help but think "Someday, he'll come back to me."
I know Jeremy Lin went to Harvard and I didn't, but I think he should be smart enough to just shut up. There was no crime in what he did, he opted for the most cash. Just about everyone does it, no need to apologize.
The gloomy British weather forecast means the Olympic volleyballers might have to cover up. When the temps fall under 61 degrees, leggings and long-sleeve tops are worn. I think we're about to find out who the real fans of beach volleyball are.
Handing out these type of dollars to a mostly unproven point guard with a shaky jumper and propensity to turn the ball over not only represents a huge risk, but also drastically handicaps New York financially for the next three seasons.
We can easily conclude that a brand's strongest, and perhaps fastest, domestic route to cash-in on Jeremy Lin's power as an icon lies with the consumers in the U.S. who identify the most with him: Asian Americans.
Susan Lee was so inspired by Lin's humble beginnings and by his family who is now living the classic American dream, that she decided to donate $1 for every point Lin scores this season to her favorite charity -- Nomi Network.
