Floyd Merryweather, once again, impresses with his sensitivity and class.

Jeremy Lin's hype is because he's an undrafted backup cut by 2 teams this season. FloydMayweather, why you have to be so mean?

Yet another cool angle to the Lin story is it turns out there are a number of people who don't root for the underdog (besides Malcolm Gladwell). Who knew?

Re: yerfatma. I haven't heard that particular episode yet, but RadioLab is a fantastic program.

Yeah, I'd stopped listening for a while (just due to time constraints, not dislike) and that one sucked me right back in. The story of a basketball team winning 2-on-5 is pretty awesome. Well, up until the game ends, anyway.

Jeremy Lin is un-freakin-believable. Tonight against the Raptors was amazing.

The only knock on Lin at this point is his turnovers. Still an amazing finish though.
