Linsanity is over for now as Lin tears meniscus

It was not long ago this current NBA season that the New York Knicks had tried out three point guards before settling on Jeremy Lin, who had been cut by Golden State and Houston.

He became an instant world-wide star in the NBA with back-to-back Sports Illustrated covers but now his season has ended.

The 23-year-old Lin will miss the rest of the regular season due to knee surgery that will keep him out of action six weeks. If the Knicks make it to the playoffs, he might be able to comeback in the Eastern Conference finals.

Lin had an MRI recently that showed a small, chronic meniscus tear.

Lin was having a great season for a player who had bounced around for the first few weeks at the start. He averaged 14.1 points, 6.1 assists.

Lin became the first American-born player of Taiwanese or Chinese descent to play in the NBA, and took the Knicks on a seven-game winning streak which was surprising with a team that has Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudamire as its star players.

Meg Mallon, a former golf star at Ohio State, will be the next captain for the Solheim Cup.

The Solheim Cup is a biennial golf tournament for professional women golfers contested by teams representing Europe and the United States.. It is named after Norwegian-American golf club  manufacturer Karsten Solheim, who was a driving force behind its creation.

The inaugural Cup was held in 1990, and the event was staged in even number years until 2002, alternating years with the Ryder Cup (the equivalent men’s event between the USA and Europe). As part of the general reshuffling of team golf events consequent to the one-year postponement of the 2001 Ryder Cup due to the September 11th attacks in 2001 the Solheim Cup switched to odd numbered years from 2003.

The 48-year-old Mallon retired from the LPGA Tour in 2010 with four major championships, including two U.S. Women’s Opens, and 14 other LPGA tournament titles. She was a member of the Solheim Cup for the U.S. eight times.

The Solheim Cup in 2013 will be held at the Colorado Golf Club in Parker, Colorado.

Today is MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY, January 16, 2012

 

Martin Luther King, Jr. born January 15, 1929, died April 4, 1969 at age 39. He was an American clergyman, activist, and prominent leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights in the United States and around the world, using nonviolent methods following the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi. King has become a national icon in the history of modern American liberalism.

A Baptist minister, King became a civil rights activist early in his career. He led the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott and helped found the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) in 1957, serving as its first president. King’s efforts led to the 1963 March on Washington, where King delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech. There, he expanded American values to include the vision of a color blind society, and established his reputation as one of the greatest orators in American history.

In 1964, King became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for his work to end racial segregation and racial discrimination through civil disobedience and other nonviolent means. By the time of his death in 1968, he had refocused his efforts on ending poverty and stopping the Vietnam War.

King was assassinated on April 4, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee. He was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1977 and Congressional Gold Medal in 2004; Martin Luther King, Jr. Day was established as a U.S. federal holiday in 1986.
