Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine has banned alcohol in the clubhouse. Some players were accused of drinking beer during games down the stretch when the Red Sox were collapsing last season.
The game has officially picked up. Kyrie is 7-7 from 3, Blake just threw an alley-oop to himself from the foul line, and Cousins just shot a 35 foot three. I love the NBA.
This week saw the triumphant return of Stephen Colbert after two harrowing days off the air. President Obama continued his quest to out-sing all of his Republican rivals. And Mitt Romney compared himself to George Constanza.
If China and the U.S. aim to bring their own version of "Linsanity" to climate and energy policy under new leadership, then both countries must pursue active and open dialogue and seek middle ground in the current race of self-interest.
I would argue, notwithstanding the endless echo chamber of political insiders and slashing attacks that is called our public discourse, that the wonderful story of Jeremy Lin tells us far more about America than partisan debates or talking heads.
You read it right, today's headline for my Art Talk is, "Knicks Player's Ball Crosses Over into the Arts?" Please don't worry; yours truly has no plans to expand his art coverage into sports.
I pray for exceeding strength to be given to Jeremy that he may continue to give you all the Glory in not only winning games but more importantly winning souls for Christ, Amen.
They've got a bunch of billboards in Southern California. The Angels are trumpeting the arrival of Albert Pujols with "El Hombre" (The Man). One person doesn't care for it. Albert Pujols.
I didn't pay much attention to Jeremy Lin until I realized he was getting me laid. Linsanity could very well redefine the Asian-American man as a sexually acknowledged being.
It ranks third, right behind "Win one for the Gipper" and "Tippecanoe and Tyler too." Mets manager Terry Collins says the message he wants to deliver is, "We're better than people think we are."
Dear America, I'm sending you a plea on behalf of all Asian Americans. I know you're caught up in Linsanity just like we are. But we really need this to continue, so it's very important that you let us help you learn how not to ruin it.
The third race yesterday at Santa Anita featured the long shot #7 horse, Winforlin. She's a five-year-old mare who has never won. But with all the Lin-Sanity? She beat out two horses, finishing sixth. Lincompetent if you ask me.
Stripping away all the silliness, there are some tangible side effects to Lin-Sanity. For one, a cable blackout was probably lifted because of Jeremy Lin.
The headline was egregious, offensive and downright racist. But to act as if this gross mistake wasn't coming, to fake shock that anyone could even think of his race, is nearly as bad an offense.
Lin's talents are inspiring his teammates and fans alike. He came from nowhere to become a top trender on Twitter.
When ESPN created an especially stupid and racially charged headline, it only took 36 hours for the fallout to begin. Thanks, in part, to the loud thunderstorm on social media.
