Fans of Knicks' Jeremy Lin spell out

Denver Broncos trade of QB Tim Tebow to the New York Jets has sports fans gaga over the added excitement Jeremy Lin's "Linsanity" generates. The new moniker is now "TimSanity" as The Big Apple prepares for the devout Christian. Jokes are already flying about how this clean cut athlete will fare in the City that never sleeps, some wondering if the Tebow would stray from his religious beliefs with all that temptation. But we aren't out to separate The Bow from his God. Au contrare--after-all, we are hardly 'The Sin City' Las Vegas.

Yes, New York City is a Metropolis that is never dull--a place of diverse cultures, religions, chic styles and a cutting edge trendsetter. Our passionate folks work hard and play even harder. From Wall St. protests and, advocacies like same sex marriage rights to potential hate crimes and injustices like the Trayvon travesty, we aren't scared to fight and fight fiercely. The City where union rights were fought and won all those years ago to recent SuperBowl victory parade, we are passionate in all we do.

So Tebow's transition to the City of endless subways, colorful congested pedestrian walkways and the dazzling display of Timessquare's million lights, billboards and yellow cabs-- can only add to the delectable, eclectic fray.

As I said, we play hard and sports is one of those areas we take very seriously. The NY Knicks's Jeremy Lin's delightful debut" on the national basketball stage already has the sports world atwitter, for his brilliant play has infused a new light and energy into the team and the game at large. Tebow's controversial 'kneel and pray' tradition and cult like following of 'Tebowers' promises to be a gift that can only keep on giving. Add the potential conflict over who the starting QB will be now that Tebow is in town and everyone is practically panting in anticipation. Will Mark Sanchez remain the head honcho? Some say TB's ego will not be able to take being second fiddle. Oh the suspense until show time!

So come visit New York, and don't forget to stop at our many landmarks but don't neglect those exciting off-the-beaten paths. Timesquare, if you like a zillion lights and pulse-stopping sensory overload at every turn. Ripley's Believe it or Not, The wax museum for unbelievably life-like replicas of celebrities, Central Park, The Museum of Natural History, with the Planetarium full of terestrial wonders. Broadway for endless culture. Macys at Herald Square for dazzling shopping, The Guggenheim Museum where the best art is the architectual splendor of the building itself, Madison Square Gardens for the latest sports play. Roosesvelt and Randall Islands for a traquil experience in the midst of the bustle with a tram car ride to boot.....and much, much more.
