Canada’s largest newspaper, the Toronto Star, is polling its readers today, asking how Jeremy Lin’s game winning basket against the Toronto Raptors last night compares to Joe Carter winning the World Series for the Toronto Blue Jays with a home run in 1993. Seriously.
For the sake of clarity, Joe Carter’s home run won his team the World Series, while Jeremy Lin’s basket put his team one game under .500.
Perspective. It’s a hell of a thing.
