Above Average Thoughts From An Average Guy
What do Kate Upton, Skrillex, and Jeremy Lin all have in common? They’re all crushing it.
While Kate Upton is busy raising the blood-pressure of every single man in this country, J-Lin and S-Moore are busy stockpiling Grammy’s and victories. You could argue that Lin and Moore (who performs under the stage name Skrillex, which according to Christwire.org, translates to “Homosexual Satanical Wasp” in Latin) are both the most polarizing figures in their sport; in Lin’s case, basketball, with Moore, Dubstep.
But that’s not the only thing uniting these two underdogs. Lin’s play in the last two Knicks game has emulated the super natural powers of the little girl in Skrillex’s latest video “First of the Year.”
In the video, a little girl is shown skipping home through a back alley, being tailed by a much larger, creepier man, whose interest in the girl doesn’t seem to compass any worry as to why she is alone. The man continues to follow the girl , as she enters the basement of a warehouse. Just as he makes like Tiffany and assumes they’re alone, the girl goes STRAIGHT HAM, knocking the living piss out of the proposed pedophile through the use of sign language and foot stomps that would rattle any parent in line at Toys R’ Us. Check out the video below:
Although only achieving 8% of the success rate of Jedi-Girl, Lin has gone 6-0 since receiving substantial minutes, chalking up victories like a girl with super powers.
Lin has entered his last two games against the Bucks and Raptors taking a cat and mouse approach, assuming the role of the smaller vermin. In both games, #17 skipped through the first three quarters, much like the girl in the alley, putting up average numbers amidst less than stellar play. Opponents have been able to capitalize, trailing the guard, and building a lead off turnovers and poor shot selections.
Both teams entered the 4th quarter much like the creepy dude; optimistic, that the victory would be in their favor. Fortunately in both cases, they were not.
Lin has won the last two games by the power of his own hands, finishing the Bucks on free throws and the Raptors on threes. I guess the guard possess some Jedi-hand tricks of his own.
Jeremy Lin goes for 7-0 tonight against the Sacremento Kings.
