I do not follow sports, I am not athletic (my sisters tell me yoga and running do not make me athletic), and only look forward to going to see a game in person because I can throw peanut shells on the floor. As “un-sporty” as I am, I know who Jeremy Lin is, I know where he grew up, his parent’s names, the number of siblings he has, where he went to college, that he is a Christian, his NBA team, his position, and the reason for “Linsanity”. And..I have to admit I have a little bit of Linsanity. My Linsanity has nothing to do with how well he is doing in basketball. My Linsanity is because I am a Chinese mother with two girls and hope one day (twenty years from now) they will find someone as talented, humble, and genuine as he is. My girls are much much younger then Jeremy Lin but if he is willing to wait a little bit (or a lot a bit) he could be with one of my princesses.
Olivia is the closest to Jeremy Lin in age, she’s 3.5, he’s 24…only 20.5 years apart. She is a true princess, even with her strawberry mustache and messy hair.
Moy Moy (妹妹）is a princess in training. She is currently learning to control her drool.
I mean, Jeremy, these girls are worth the wait…
Every Chinese mother has a little bit of Linsanity. We all want our children to be with someone that will take care of them as good as we do. Thank you Jeremy Lin for being a role model for our future son-in-laws.
