So it’s come to this: a new shipment of Jeremy Lin merchandise arrived at Modell’s Sporting Goods in NYC’s Times Square on Wednesday, and TV cameras were on hand to film the thrill-packed unloading action. One would think that Lin himself was in one of the boxes, but no. Not only that, but people were lined up in the store to get their hands on the stuff the minute it was unpacked.
