Jeremy Lin Back in Action, Reflects on "Linsanity"
(Ultimate Rockets) A year to the day after Linsanity began, Jeremy Lin sprained his left ankle at Rockets practice. He was not overly concerned with either, though the way both worked out left him feeling fortunate. He returned to the Rockets shootaround on Tuesday, declaring himself “good to go” long before his availability became a game-time decision. And he marked the occasion of his rise from obscurity to stardom by giving thanks. “Yesterday, everyone was like “oh, congrats, it’s been one year,’ “ Lin said. “I didn’t even realize it until I got a text. It’s crazy. God’s been really good to me. It’s only been one year. It seemed like so long ago. People would tweet it and stuff like that. It was cool, really cool. “It seems like a really long time ago. It was definitely a whirlwind. I definitely enjoyed it. I definitely learned and grew a lot as a person. I got exposed to a lot more than I’ll probably be exposed to the rest of my life as far as how fast everything happens. “I think for me, every time I think back I’m thankful because I still remember like yesterday what it was like to be fighting for my spot and coming to work every day unsure if it would be my last. I’m just trying to stay thankful and grateful and keep that memory of where I used to be fresh in my mind so I don’t take things for granted.” Desperate for a spark with Carmelo Anthony injured and Amar’e Stoudemire away from the team, former Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni turned to Lin just days before the Knicks were expected to release him. Lin outplayed the Nets’ Deron Williams, scoring 25 points in the Knicks’ win, earning the chance to take off and change – perhaps save – his career. “I remember I was like in the shower and I was like in tears because it had been such a long journey for me,” Lin said. “My (previous) good game was probably in college to have that type of game. I still remember everything. I remember my phone calls that I made and where I went to dinner and all that.” With tonight’s game, he will play for the second team that cut him against the first team that cut him. Lin, however, said he had no more hard feelings for his hometown Warriors than he had for the Rockets, the team he rejoined after leaving New York. “I’m very thankful. I had some great times with them,” Lin said. “It was more of a learning process, improving process in my first year. They gave me the shot. I wouldn’t be here today if I wasn’t able to play my first year with the Warriors.” He would not be facing them for the first time, however, if he could not play because of the latest ankle sprain. But he said this one, as with the previous two sprains also suffered at the end of practices, would not need any kind of stunning turnaround to rival his story of a year ago. “I’m good to go,” Lin said. “Just tweaked it in practice. I just rolled it on somebody’s foot. It’s annoying, but it happens. Everybody’s going to twist an ankle here and there.” When it comes to twists and turns, Lin knew better than most – especially this week – how well they can work out.
'Space Jam' Is Still The Best Movie Ever.
So you've read the title of this card, and I already know what you're thinking. "Dani, does 'Inception' mean nothing to you?" or "You're trying to tell me that you think 'Space Jam' is a better movie than [Insert the title of a Quentin Tarantino movie here.]?" And I'm here to tell you - yes, you insolent fools. 'Space Jam' is the 'Citizen Kane' of our time. And here's why: First off, it stars Michael Jordan, arguably the most beloved sports celebrity of the past 30 years or so. Think about it. Tiger Woods? Scandal. Lance Armstrong? Scandal. Michael Jordan? Selling Nikes to you, your friend, your brother, and your dad easily since 1984. (That's right. 1984.) Secondly, it lets kids imagine a world where their favorite 'Looney Toons' characters live among humans. Porky Pig asking for Michael Jordan's autograph? Daffy Duck spraying his spit all over as he argues with Bill Murray? Newman from 'Seinfeld' being flattened out like Wyle E. Coyote under an Acme anvil? Priceless. So much priceless. Plus, I think every 90s kid is STILL obsessed with the movie's soundtrack. "COME ON AND SLAM AND WELCOME TO THE JAM." will always be all that needs to be said before a party starts in any given room. Plus, "I Believe I Can Fly", "Hit 'Em High", "Fly Like An Eagle", and "For You I Will" are singles that are just as great to listen to today. The roster of NBA stars that get their skills stolen by the Monstars reads like an MVP blast from the past. Patrick Ewing, Larry Bird, Charles Barkley -- These guys were the absolute kings of basketball in the 90s, and seeing them all act in this movie is SUPER amusing, but also makes you feel kind of old now. (I mean, Muggsy Bogues is 50 today, you guys.) 'Space Jam' inspired a whole generation of kid athletes and non-athletes - including NBA power forward Blake Griffin. I mean, I'm not saying that Little Kid Blake Griffin was watching 'Space Jam' in the movie theater, thinking something like "Hey, maybe if I get 'NBA Rookie Of The Year', it'll up my odds of meeting Bugs Bunny'." But I'm also not NOT saying that. And so, my fellow Vinglers, I hope that I have made you reconsider where your previous loyalties laid and will join me in the 'Space Jam Is The Coolest' Vingle Fan Club - where the current members are Me, Me, Me, and @christianmordi over in the Sports Community. What was YOUR favorite part about 'Space Jam'?
The 5 Strangest Superstition in Sports!
Hello sports fans! It's Friday the 13th! Here are some of the strangest superstitions in sports! Michael Jordan Michael always wore his UNC shorts under his NBA shorts. Thus, he wore longer shorts than his fellow players at that time. In the end however, his fellow players followed suit after the legend. Serena Williams Serena Williams is known for not changing socks once during a tournament. It sucks to wear a pair of socks for more than a day...imagine how it would feel to wear the same socks for an entire tournament! I guess Serena doesn't mind it considering the number of tournaments she has won. Brian Ulracher Brian Ulracher ate two chocolate chip cookies before every game. Maybe that was the secret to his muscular body. I think it'd be fair to call him the "Cookie Monster". Caron Butler Caron Butler was known to be an avid fan of Mountain Dew. He loved the drink so much that he drank before and during every game. During his UNC days, he asked his wife to pick him a 2-L bottle of the green stuff, and drank half of it before the game, and the rest during half-time. In 2007, the Wizards and NBA banned him from drinking it during games so he eventually quit the whole thing in 2009. Moises Alou This one has to be the most f*cked up one out of all of them. Moises Alou used to pee on his own hands to harden them! Should we see that as commitment to the game of baseball or just some pretty weird ass shit? Oh and by the way, don't try to harden your hands by peeing on them ladies and gentlemen, because doctors have confirmed that peeing on your hand doesn't harden them. It actually softens them. @jeff4122 @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 @DonnaMelton @InPlainSight @jokes @BEAUTYgirlARIEL @David19Flo23 @karencorchado @salahabdalla @Moose892 @BrookieyElba @SamuelRodriguez @ValerieAlissaPa @xitlalicordova1 @AndrewMaldonado @Jovi @Shippudenguy21 @AbdulrahmanSaad @trinityarcangel @thefeels @Link4TW @ChriSingularis @sanazsanaz @WilliamBrown @DannyMoses @ClaySharko @Ravenwing92 @FromBlue2U @TravisBeck @LemissaNicole @BossDominata @gatorchick96 @MatthewBoughton @MarcusJiles @BrandonMcNeil @MalikLawary @KyleBerke @manbungo2000 @DerekGumtow @havic @Straightshooter @PhilAnthony @Kirooken @yaakattackk @RodneyYoung @DreJones @JonathanKerns @bnzattoni @TravisManning @GalacticChakra @smothgreen @afxs @johnnolastname @ChristopherKenn @ChasePage @coreywriley91@MikeWolf @MrTenThirty @JasonNilsson @BrunoDutch @SherzTYC @krishntejanand @addri @ChrisStephens What was your favorite one from the list?

[Ladies' Week] Inspirational Ads
Ok. I usually don't like ads. But when it comes to sports ads, especially inspirational sports ads, I love watching them. I would sometimes go on YouTube just to watch motivational sports commercials over and over again. Well, once again, in celebration of Ladies' Week, I want to share some of my favorite sports commercials with y'all. Sit back and let's get pumped! 1. Nike - Better For It This ad's main message is to support women on their athletic journeys. We all have our own insecurities when it comes to working out. However, this particular campaign empowers women to be better through inspiration and motivation to push to the next level. It's so motivating and it also sends message to the rest of the world that there is no such thing as masculine or feminine when it comes to exercising. Everyone is equal and everyone has the power to turn "can't" into "can". 2. Always - Like A Girl This ad is definitely one of the most powerful ads I've ever seen in my life. Due to the stereotypes that exist in society, girls may lose confidence as they grow older. The rest of society could also be bound by these types of stereotypes. But this commercial can change the perceptions that people have of the phrase, "like a girl". It also has inspired me to take part in this campaign and change the phrase "like a girl" from an insult to something positive. 3. P&G - Thank You Mom Moms are the best. Even though I have not yet been a parent, I always get a bit misty when I watch this ad. A powerful element in this commercial is that athletes are not the focus here. Instead, the focus is on the dedicated moms that pick them back up when they fall. Of course, we cannot forget about all the dads around the world, but let me say this one more time: moms are the best! Well, another shoutout to @shannonl5 for planning this awesome event and you guys should all join if you still haven't heard about it yet! Also, what are your favorite women's sports commercials?
