What a vaLINtine for Toronto!
Usually covering a highly hyped game or athlete never lives up to the . But, Jeremy Lin did not disappoint! The crowd that cheered the home side vigourously and as the game went on seemed to get behind the Tim Teabow of basketball.
If I had to start a basketball portfolio, this game would be the one to cover. The game made for good pictures and atmosphere at the ACC, one of the best games since the days of VINsanity.
I don't think I have ever seen so many signs for a visiting player or for anyone on the homeside either!
