lin man, intense, sad, habitat

we all love a good story
well heres one
a harvard grad who is playing professional basketball
translation he is smart but may not be a good player
major was economics
he is making $750,00 plus a year
(i know thats a lot to most people but not in the nba
the two players out with injuries make combined $38 million a year)
he sleeps on his brothers couch in his apartment

this is a rarity a harvard grad in the nba

he wasnt drafted out of college
no surprise
not sure if a harvard grad has been drafted before

lets check google
theyll know
looks like one named smith was drafted in the 50s
only three have ever played in the nba

he was cut by two nba teams
then played for 2 nba d league (thats the minor league nba
basketball league eg austin toros is the d league team for the
san antonio spurs)

he was picked up by the ny knicks
and sat on the end of the bench down by the water cooler
and was about to be cut from the team when a lot of injuries
occurred and one night he got put in the game

bam like emerald does when he spices up his meals
jeremy lin added bam to the ny knicks now for several games
he threw down over 30 on kobe bryants lakers the other night
he is filling the arenas wherever he plays
all his team mates and his coach are at awe with his performance
he came out of nowhere

what a great story this year
think i will use this as the point to enter the basketball season
since we are almost two weeks out from football

what a great way to start

lets go lin man
keep it up
a real good feel good story

my wife she and i went to see the movie girl with a dragon tattoo
is the only way to describe this movie
makes you think a lot about a lot of things going on in our society
dont think i could watch it again though
do plan on reading the book so i can learn more about the characters
especially the tattoo girl

sometimes in medicine we have to face the realities of society directly
something politicians dont have to do
this is an article posted on facebook by one of my former classmates
as a non political posting but just to show what really happens

here is the article
many of us who have worked ers in the past have found ourselves in these
situations although less often in past years
am afraid though that it will be occurring more often

this article makes you think about this issue
no matter what side you are on

the construction of the house is going well
its ahead of schedule
the roof decking is almost on as well as most of the siding
the windows and doors were placed this weekend

its starting to look like a house now
next the roof will be placed and the siding all put up
then its inside for the duration except for outside painting
