Jeremy Lin ecstatic over Harvard win
MAR 21, 2013 11:35p ET
The Basketball Gods must have been smiling down on Harvard's current most famous alumnus on Thursday night (sorry, Mr. President ... it's March Madness, basketball takes precedent, at least for three weekends).
After giving the Houston Rockets an off-night on Thursday night, the Gods then scheduled Harvard to face New Mexico on that open evening ... allowing Jeremy Lin to sit back and watch the biggest upset so far in the tournament.
And Lin was more than just a little excited when 14th-seeded Harvard knocked off the third-seeded Lobos.
"YYYYYEEEEESSSSSSSSS!!! HARVARD winssss!!! hahahahhah i told you..." Lin tweeted after Harvard's first ever win in the NCAA tournament.
You don't have to be a Harvard graduate to count Lin's excitement. That's five "Y's," five "E's," and nine "S's," to go with three exclamation points.
Earlier in the day, Lin was talking smack with teammate Chandler Parsons on Twitter about their Final Four picks.
After Parsons released his Final Four, Lin responded back, asking where Harvard was in his selections.
"In the library," Parsons tweeted back to Lin.
"Whatever ... learn to read," Lin tweeted in response.
But it seems now that Lin got the last laugh.
"My bracket is finished. Tough day 1 for me. Harvard tho?? I had New Mexico in final 4!! Smh," Parsons tweeted after Harvard's win.
And if Parsons wants to now hop on the Harvard bandwagon, Lin has put together a video on five easy steps to get into Harvard for him.
