If you were able to escape all 4,864 angles of the NBA’s hottest sensation Jeremy Lin going “rags-to-riches” all over the Internet this week, you might’ve discovered these little morsels scattered about.
1. Phi Slama Jama
By now, you've figured out that we're dunk fans (who isn't?). ... The title of this clip might be a little hyperbolic, but it's still a pretty nifty jam. I imagine the play-call went something like this: "Okay. Whistle blows, you run, I'll heave it."
2. Just like the pros
It was bound to happen sooner or later ... ice hockey makes its long-awaited #SocialStudies debut in Week 3. Reigning Division 1 runner-up Orchard Lakes St. Mary will look to return to CompuWare Arena in March; for now, senior captain Luke Rodgers (#87) is content to flaunt some "stick trickery."
3. It's almost time
One of our most popular and well-liked promo pieces resurfaces this week: the Individual Wrestling Championships will take place March 1-3 at The Palace of Auburn Hills. Tickets are available for purchase through the Palace Box Office starting at 9 a.m., Wednesday, Feb. 29.
For now: get hyped.
4. 'This is crazy'
And lastly, a non-video story that caught our attention. Social networks like Facebook and Twitter instigate a smattering of negative celebrity chatter – and rightly so, in some cases. But, on occasion, there are tales of someone using a service to extend itself in a capacity that wasn’t available a decade ago.
CNBC’s Darren Rovell writes about an astonishing week in the lives of a Twitter fan and a superstar (who formerly starred at Central Michigan).
That's it for 3.0. Remember, if you see something high school sports-related online that the rest of us must see, or if you videoed something yourself, upload it to Youtube and send it on over. It could make next week's #SocialStudies line-up.
