Just when we thought the legend of Jeremy Lin had reached its peak, it took another step higher today.  Politico 44 is reporting that President Obama is impressed by the skills of Jeremy Lin, and his story:

“The president is an avid sports fan and particularly avid basketball fan and we were speaking about Jeremy Lin on Marine One as we flew here to Andrews Air Force Base this morning,” Carney said Wednesday. “It’s just a great story and the president was saying as much this morning. Obviously terrific for the New York Knicks but it’s the kind of sports story that transcends the sport itself.”

“It’s a great story and yes, he’s very impressed and fully up to speed. I know he’s watched Lin play already and he’s seen the highlights from last night’s game,” Carney told reporters.

Imagine the emotional roller coaster that this young New York Knicks guard is enjoying currently?  It is all pretty amazing.
