Linsanity Takes His Talents to South Beach
For the past month, Jeremy Lin has taken the NBA by storm in the Big Apple with his outstanding and exciting play that has come out of nowhere. He's gone from being cut by the Golden State Warriors to playing in the D-League to starting for a playoff team. He faces his biggest challenge thus far as the Knicks take on the Heat in Miami tonight. The Heat are at the top of the standings as the trio of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, & Chris Bosh has really begun to click. The Heat have won 7 games in a row by 12 points or more. Carmelo Anthony has returned for the Knicks and the mini-storyline of the "feud" between LeBron & Carmelo gets reignited as well. It has all the hype in the world and God knows I'll be watching, but I'm pretty sure the Heat are going to demolish this Knicks team. Miami thrives on turnovers, often taking them to the house for monster breakaway slams. This spells bad news for Lin who has 59 turnovers in his first ten starts, which is the most of all-time for any player. I imagine Lin will have 8-10 turnovers in the game, leading to 16-20 points on breakaway dunks for Wade & LeBron. Not to mention Lin will have LeBron guarding him for some portions of the game, he'll be lucky to break 15 points I think. All in all, this game has all the hype, but once it gets down to thee actual playing...the Heat will win by 15+ and we'll all be bored by halftime.

Brady Quinn Wishes He Was Still Relevant
Remember Brady Quinn? No? I didn't think so. Let me give you a quick crash course on the guy. He was the quarterback for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish for four seasons and set a copious amount of records and his name is sprinkled among some NCAA passing records. He was named to a few All-American Teams and even graced the cover of Sports Illustrated. He & Notre Dame never could win the big game, Quinn did at least take home a few awards, including a the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award for the best quarterback in the NCAA in 2006. Fast-forward to his NFL career where Quinn was drafted by the Cleveland Browns with the 22nd pick. The kid had moxie, after the Miami Dolphins passed on him with the 9th pick, he was seen saying "they'll be sorry." Well, unfortunately for Brady, the only team that was sorry were the Browns who gave him the reigns only for him to bust. In a spectacular move for the Browns, they traded the disappointing Quinn to the Denver Broncos for running-back Peyton Hillis who went on to make the Pro-Bowl with them while Quinn became a perennial back-up. This past season, Tim Tebow helped lead the Broncos to a surprising playoff berth with miraculous comebacks while Quinn watched from the sidelines. Now in the offseason, Quinn is speaking up saying that he felt it was unfair Tebow was given the starting role over him and he was upset Tebow was given more publicity in Denver than he got. He then called out Tebow for praying on the field for the cameras saying that that is something he would have done with his teammates. While Brady may have a point there, he simply sounds like someone who's trying to paint himself as the ultimate teammate while tarnishing Tebow at the same time. All in all, Quinn just sounds like an entitled brat who's throwing a hissy-fit over the fact that Tebow played well and got a chance. Here's a newsflash for Brady Quinn -- you had your chance and blew it in Cleveland. This was Tebow's first chance and he excelled. While Brady Quinn was losing every Bowl game he was in in college, Tebow was winning National Championships. Reputation proceeds you, Brady. Quinn has since apologized for his comments, which he really didn't NEED to do. He was just speaking his mind, even if he came off like a bitter douche bag.
And to wrap things up eloquently, a friend of mine, Christian Antonio aka Adoginawig puts it the only way he knows how - "tl;dr Tebow is a godfag and Quinn doesn't like it"

A long time of listening to music means a ton of songs of the day. Was really drawn to Sugarcult & The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus today. I'd like to single out Pretty Girl (The Way) by Sugarcult & The Acoustic Song by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus as two of my favorite songs. Absolutely fantastic.

I have loved this song since junior high, definitely one of my all-time favs. I actually heard this acoustic version before the regular. I love them both, but something about this acoustic version gets to me.

Two Mayday Parade songs which completely epitomize the feeling of being left behind amazingly. There is seriously not a single band out there that can make sad songs like this band. Even if I'm not in a stereotypical shitty mood, I still get so much out of these songs. Good God it's insane.

The starting lineups for the NBA All-Star game were announced today and seemed to be somewhat decent choices. There's always going to be a massive amount of debate whenever a list of all-stars is released for any sport and the NBA is no different. The reserves to the all-star teams will be announced a week from today, but I'll go ahead and include the players I believe should be named. Instead of spamming Twitter with my choices, figure I could just make a post for it!

In the sports world, bandwagoning is a mortal sin. Like butt-fucking a priest on the Sabbath, rooting for a team simply because they're good is something that can get you ostracized in your community. I've always been the type of person who is inclined to believe that you should root for your local teams. I don't see how anyone gets all that much gratification from watching the Pittsburgh Steelers win the Super Bowl from Seattle. Of course, there are extenuating circumstances, such as moving to another city and still rooting for your original team. If I met a Patriots fan living in Miami that informed me that he moved as a teenager, I would not feel the need to call him a raging bandwagoning loser. I think having a "2nd team" to root for besides your primary one is just as bad as well. Call me a snobby sports fan, but that's just how I feel. I believe we all go through that time in our lives, mainly while growing up, where we decide to root for other teams. Call it intrigue or boredom, but it tends to happen. I am no exception to the rule, because you'll see in this post the most prominent teams I had cheering allegiances to for various reasons growing up.
I tried so hard for there to be a different song of the day, but fuck me in the butt, I woke up this morning and this song was stuck in my head. I listened to other tracks all morning long, but nothing took. The worst part is, this is an Avril video where she hasn't even gotten hot yet. I'm ashamed.
