Reminds me of the scene in the Beatles "Hard Day's night" where Paul's granddad is forging the four's signatures onto photos to sell to the fans. There's several thousand born every minute!

Ah, dear, but you forget the mastery required for selling a what, 400nt basketball for 13.500nts. That will be 76.950.000nts or 2.604.900 usd as per my calculator, no small peanuts. :D

saw a credit card being offered with his face on it... wanted to rage just a little bit after seeing that nonsense.
Been here for over a year... Blue sky is the most beautiful thing to see when it happens in Taipei... a handful of times.

Lin is "coming back" to Taiwan on August 26th, for a basketball camp with talented youth. :discodance:

Everytime I see his face I want to flip him the bird.

Every time I see his face I wish I was at least 10 years younger. :lick:

Petty jealousy.
There are millions of people in the world. And none of those people is an extra. They're all leads in their own stories.

If you lose one sense, your other senses are enhanced. That's why people with no sense of humour have an increased sense of self-importance.

Oh, oh, the Knicks are letting the guy go. Houston does not seem like a good match for him. I mean, part of the appeal was seeing all of the celebrities rooting for the underdog. That the Knicks signed up otehr point guards at a similar cost is quite telling. Oh, oh, Lin, now what?

It's worth it for Mark Cuban to pay him that kind of money (the kind the Knicks reportedly won't match). Houston needs another Yao Ming.
