Saturday night the Knicks hosted the Nets to play ball for the third consecutive night. The crowd was already rowdy with the ex husband of Kim Kardashian, Kris Humphries, in the building for the Nets. Humphries was voted the most hated player in the NBA recently and the fans at the Garden let him know about it. One thing the New York crowd wasn’t too excited for was the play of the Knicks, who have been losers throughout much of this strike shortened season. Jeremy Lin gave em something to cheer about.
Lets get a little background on the kid first and foremost. Jeremy Lin is the first NBA player to be American born and of Chinese descent. Lin came out of high school looking to play for his dream school, UCLA. They didn’t want him, so he “settled” for Harvard. Now no one really seemed to think that highly of the kid, he was snubbed by his home state of California and even after a solid college career, he went un-drafted.
After getting an Economics degree from Harvard, Lin went to a few training camps. And as the story goes, no one really seemed very interested. That was until his hometown Golden State Warriors came calling for Lin. He signed on to play with the Warriors in the 2010-2011 season. Lin played in 29 games that rookie year. Lets fast forward to the fun part now, the Knicks sniped him off waivers a few days into this season after a Christmas injury to rookie guard Iman Shumpert.
Jeremy Lin came in last night as the Knicks season was reeling and the fans were no longer dealing. The guards of the Knicks have been near useless all season and the team was praying for something to fall in their favor. The very religious Lin answered those prayers. The Ivy Leaguer played 36 minutes in the Knicks 99-92 win. He dropped a career high 25 points, the most by any player by either team in the game. Lin added 5 rebounds, 7 assist, and 2 steals. Lin became an instant fan favorite and the legend was born.
With a story as heartwarming as a bowl of ramen noodles, one would hope that it would continue to trend towards a happy ending. This has yet to be determined; while Lin may have single handedly saved the job of Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni, it remains to be seen whether or not the point guard problem is solved. For now though lets just enjoy the rise of the new hero of the Knickerbockers.
Have you caught a glimpse of this yet? Apparently some t-shirt company is capitalizing on Kristen Stewarts cheating scandal. While I am certainly not on Kristen’s side of the ring for this one, I think that this t-shirt is taking it a little too far. We live in a society that is constantly trying to stop bullying, and clearly, as demonstrated by the creators of this t-shirt, many adults are still guilty of it. The moral of the story is that no one deserves to be bullied, not even if they are in the public eye.
Words are not needed from me, this is one of those things where the punchline is right there for you. Watch the video and enjoy. I hope you saw this live like I did, and laughed like a little girl. And to Lebron, good effort man, good job.

It may be called the Sundance Film Festival, but it seems like the sun is the farthest thing away from Park City, Utah. Celebs have had the challenge of braving the snow, while staying chic for the Sudnance festivities. Taylor Swift and Elizabeth Olsen both look more adorable than ever, while opting for the cozy look. The focal point on both of their outfits are their comfy winter hats. Although we are snow free for a few days here in New York, something tells me there is more to come. Prepare yourself to be cute and cozy and check out Urban Outfitters for similar style hats!
This week the Madison Square Garden will be hosting all the Big East teams as they compete to be the best in the Conference

The Big East tournament will kickoff today with a plethora of great games. DePaul and reigning NCAA champs UConn will start the action at 12. Following that game, my St. John’s Red Storm will take on Pittsburgh at around 2. A full slate of games will be played today, later tonight at around 7 Providence will battle with Seton Hall and at 9 Villanova will try to take down Rutgers. If any of these teams manage to make it to the final game of the Big East Tournament, it will mean they will have to play 5 games in 5 days. UConn accomplished this last year and that seemed to work out perfectly for them. It doesn’t matter how bad of a season any of these teams had up until today, if they can win out, then they will earn a bid to the NCAA tournament.

Since The Devil Wears Prada, I have been a HUGE Anne Hathaway fan. Not only did that movie hit close to home, but Anne was the perfect choice as the movies leading lady. I think that she is such a stunning woman and makes fabulous fashion choices even in her post-prada days (many thanks to her stylist Rachel Zoe I am sure!). So when Anne was seen on Saturday in London having chopped her luscious locks off, I, like many of you I am sure was shocked! Apparently Anne cut off her hair for the current role she has also reportedly been losing weight for as Fantine in Les Miserables.
Anne is such a beautiful girl with amazing features that she can totally rock the pixie cut! Short hair is a bold move that really shows a woman’s confidence. I admire any girl that has the guts to chop off her hair! I am DYING to hear what my girl Jill over at weSTYLEny.com has to say about this! Thoughts everyone???
