I have JEREMY-LIN-FEVER. Do you???
Most of you probably have no idea what that means, so if you don't I highly recommend googling the name "Jeremy Lin" to see what the big deal is. To give you a quick explanation, the kid is a nobody basketball player from Harvard who's suddenly come out of no where to dominate in the NBA. Two weeks ago he was sleeping on someone's couch because he had no where to live, and now he's the most talked about basketball player in the world. It's incredible.
Yeah I know this has nothing to do with video games, but unfortunately I don't really have much to talk about. I haven't played a single game since I beat Gears of War 3 last week. I bought Batman: Arkham City this week but haven't started playing it yet due to a jammed thumb I got while playing basketball this week. It's all black, blue, swollen, and it hurts like hell.
Well I hope you all had a great weekend. Now let's get on with the weekend recaps shall we.
