New York — The New York Knicks announced today that patient zero of Linsanity, Jeremy Lin, will be out for six weeks after he undergoes surgery for a torn meniscus in his left knee.
As I reported earlier, the press exploded when former Denver Broncos QB was kicked out/released to the New York Jets, mostly because they had nothing better to do but also because it would be the collision of two huge storylines. Sports are all about storylines.
Anyway, Lin’s surgery clearly shows that God intends for Tebow to be his #1 rep in New York City. This must hurt for Lin, who did a great job representing himself, his religion, and most importantly, allowing borderline racist puns in sports media.
This is a huge blow to people who like to project their beliefs and aspirations onto people who get paid large sums of money to stay in shape and play a game.
