The ESPN editor, Anthony Federico, who made the unfortunate mistake of entitling an article “Chink in the Armor” got an interesting e-mail recently from a member of Jeremy Lin’s family. The e-mail led to Federico and Jeremy Lin having lunch together in Manhattan.
A member of Lin’s family reached out to Federico via e-mail more than a month ago, according to Federico. After several attempts to get Lin and Federico to meet were scuttled because of the Knicks point guard’s busy schedule, the meeting finally took place at a Manhattan restaurant and left Federico thankful for Lin’s graciousness.
“The fact that he reached out to me,” Federico said. “The fact that he took the time to meet with me in his insanely busy schedule . . . He’s just a wonderful, humble person. He didn’t have to do that, especially after everything had kind of died down for the most part.
We are really glad to hear this and apparently they discussed the headline incident for not “more than three minutes.”
