We get the Jeremy Lin's Potential Virginity Press Conference? Now, I hate the Tim Tebow comparisons as much as the next self-respecting Knicks fan, but there's one way I do expect their careers to play out similarly. As a hotshot young athlete (blowing up in New York City, no less) Jeremy Lin is inevitably going to become something of a sex symbol. Be honest: you'd do him right now if he asked you to, wouldn't you? That's what I thought. At some point, somebody's gonna ask the question.
As best as I can remember, Tebow had been steamrolling his way to rushing touchdowns in the public eye for months before a reporter put 2 and 2 together and went, "Wait a second... You're a devout Christian... A lot of them folks don't believe in premarital sex... And yet you're a sex symbol... My head hurts. Are you a virgin?!" But Jeremy Lin is blowing up way bigger than Tebow ever did, and he's superior in just about every way, so I have a feeling this is coming sooner rather than later. What do you all think? Anybody want to bet internet dollars and/or fresh baked forum cookies as to when this issue finally gets addressed? Has it happened already, and I just don't know about it? And just for fun, what do we think the answer to the fundamental question really is?
