Even though "Lin-sanity" might be cooling off now, it sure has not stopped New York City restaurants from trying to cash in on New York Knicks' Jeremy Lin's rise atop NBA popularity.

By now you must have heard all the plays on Lin's name. From "Lin-credible," "Lin-ing" to the ever popular "Lin-sanity" now comes a new one should you ever be in the "Big Apple" and get a craving for soup.

Check out what one New York City restaurant is serving with the approval of Shaquille O'Neal -- "Lin-til" soup. Get it?

Now I am sure this restaurant didn't get any permission from the NBA or the Knicks to use Lin's image for profit but this goes to show you the lengths of Lin's rise in popularity.

Just hope Seinfeld's soup Nazi is not there to deny you a big bowl of "Lin-til" soup.

Be a part of a world record with a simple pledge to drink it up on St. Patty's Day: Guinness is looking to set a Guinness World Record. And you get to be a part of it.

Guinness is attempting to set the record for The Largest St. Patrick's Day Celebration ever. Here's all you need to do: Go to Guinness.com and click on "Join the Party." You'll get a pledge form where you promise to toast St. Patrick's Day with a pint of Guinness. All that's needed is your first name, your zip code and an optional referral code. That code is CHRN. Oh and you can also get a chance to win a trip to Dublin.  Yeah, as in Dublin, Ireland!

So have a pint on Saturday, March 17th which is St. Patty's Day and you're a part of the record-breaking party. Seriously, St. Patty's Day + Guinness + world record = awesomeness.
