#Linsanity, The Valentine’s (Or VaLintine’s) Day Edition: Who Should Be Jeremy Lin’s Basketball Wife?

February 14th, 2012 | 10 comments | Posted by Jen

So Linsanity took, what, all of a week to sweep the nation? Now what?

If Jeremy Lin keeps playing the way he’s been playing, he’s going to have to negotiate a much bigger contract when he becomes an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. (Currently, he makes the league minimum.) But that’s for his sports agent to figure out.

And dude needs a place to live, since he’s currently–and adorably–crashing with his older brother Josh, who’s in dentistry school at NYU. But that’s for his real estate agent to figure out. Preferably after his sports agent figures out where Lin will be playing next year.

After all that, the next thing Lin ought to figure out is who his “And One” will be. Because nothing–apart from a lot of sparkly man-jewelry–says “I’ve arrived” in the NBA quite like a Basketball Wife, a boo to cheer you on when everyone else is, well, booing your sorry ass. And since it happens to be the holiday of bitterness, loneliness, cliched expressions of affection, flawed diamonds, deli flowers, teddy bears that give you allergies, cheap boxes of chocolates, and crying yourself to sleep, er, LOVE, I’ve taken it upon myself to be Jeremy’s matchmaker. (And, yes, my ten percent cut can totally come in the form of courtside seats.)

With flowers?

Chocolate?

Diamonds?

Skywriting?

(Not microwaves, obviously.)

Fuck that! This is the real way you show your significant other you’re in it for the long haul:

Ask The Intern: Is “Me So Horny” The New “I Love You”?

Guest Contributor Intern Jasmine of This Is Jasmine answers all of your disquestions! Today’s topic? Valentine cards.

Love is in the air! Jessica W. wrote in this week wondering what DISGRASIAN thought of these “Stank Sentiments for Sweethearts” valentines–love notes printed with select rap lyrics–and, more specifically, this one:

Call me a party pooper but it’s hard for me to get excited about a card that expresses a sentiment I’ve heard yelled at me for pretty much all my life. I mean, valentine messages are supposed to be special, right, and not what some random a-hole says to you on the street on a Monday morning?

I know, I know, it’s supposed to be ironic. But I guess I must have some sort of hipster irony deficiency because I’m just not seeing it.

All I see is this:
