Jeremy Lin merchandise already on sale, prices slashed at NYC drug store (Picture)
Jeremy Lin may be out for the rest of the season, but he’s in New York for the long haul. Linsanity remains as strong as ever and there will be many a Lin jersey under the tree of Knicks fans this Christmas. No need to slash merchandise prices simply because New York’s favorite new point guard suffered a somewhat serious knee injury, right? Wrong. Apparently a drug store in New York City doesn’t feel that way, as evidenced by the picture you see above that ESPN’s Michele Steele passed along.
That’s 14 cents for Jeremy Lin bumper stickers and 24 cents for peel-and-stick tattoos. Is this drug store hitting the panic button already? Many people believe the Knicks withheld information about Lin’s knee intentionally until after their playoff tickets were sold, even though the team refuted the claim. Perhaps they did it for the good of all stores that sell Lin merchandise.
