If you didn't see this post by Bill Hanstock yesterday after the New York Knicks declined to match Jeremy Lin's offer sheet to the Houston Rockets, you missed some fantastic fake headlines that could grace the masthead of your favorite newspaper or website.â†µ
Some of my favorites include:â†µ
- Lindependence Day! Out-Of-This-World Rockets Say To Point Guard, "Welcome To Earth!" -- ESPN.comâ†µ
- Linter Is Going! Jeremy Lin To The Rockets Following Real-Life Game Of Thrones -- CBS Sports (Written by an intern who has only heard about Game of Thrones second-hand and doesn't get HBO.)â†µ
and my personal favoriteâ†µ
- Knicks No Longer Linterested: Jeremy Lin To Houston -- FOX Sportsâ†µ
Don't forget to read the comments and the LINks at the bottom of the post, which have some great Lin puns as well. This one in the comments was actually used by the New York Post, which is pretty awesome.
