It was the Rangers who had the magic last night at the Garden, besting the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-3 in overtime thanks to a Brad ‘Bruce-Bob’ Richards game-winner.  Tonight the ‘Linsanity’ will continue, as Jeremy Lin and the Knicks welcome in the best basketball player on the planet, Kobe Bryant and the rest of the Los Angeles Lakers.

Needless to say, MSG will be the place to be this Friday night – which is always the case when Kobe makes his annual trip to Madison Avenue – but tonight the Knicks have a headliner of their own, as second year point guard Jeremy Lin has captured the imagination of a city.

Interestingly enough, when asked about Lin, Kobe admitted to having never heard of him.

Boomer on the other hand, he is ready to elevate Lin to ‘Tebow-Status’ – which prompted Craigie to tell his radio partner to pump the brakes a bit.  Feeding into Boomer’s theory though, we hear that there are  Lin jersey’s on-sale exclusively at the Garden and they’re charging a higher price than all the rest.

Whether or not Lin reaches ‘Tebow-Status’ remains to be seen, but the buzz he has brought to the city is certainly real and will only gain momentum with another good performance tonight at the ‘Mecca’.

So we had the Rangers, the Knicks, the Super bowl Champion Giants of course – and the New York Yankees, who also made the news cycle after their GM Brian Cashman was referred to as a ‘good lover’ by a woman currently serving time on Rikers Island – so there was that too…
