Found February 13, 2012 on Unathletic:

Tim Tebow took the nation by storm this NFL season. He seemingly has passed the baton to New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin. First, we had Tebow Time, now we have Linsanity or “All I do is Lin” (take your pick).

Today, we’re going to be really obnoxious and come up with some more “times” or names for athletes who are making headlines today. This could be really good or an epic fail.

Hit the jump and you’ll see 5 Other Trending Athletes nicknames… Here goes nothing..

Peyton Mandown

It’s a pretty consistent theme to see Peyton on Sportscenter these days.. Will he play, will he stay with the Colts, blah blah blah… Thank goodness we all like Peyton or this would be insufferable.

Rivers Monster

This was a challenging one.. Rivers hit a monster shot vs. UNC last week.. little help….

Carmelo Anybody, Bueller?”

Are fans already done with ‘Melo? Linsanity is making Carmelo an afterthought….

GTL – Gronk’s ego Too Large”

Gronk disappeared during the Super Bowl (because of his ankle). Partied his ass off that night (showing no ill-effects from his ankle). He’s been really upset about the Super Bowl loss by partying, going to Knicks games, and probably sleeping with hosts of women.


Alex Morgan has hit the news big time by posing in a body paint bikini for SI Swimsuit. What is it with US Soccer players getting naked? I’m not complaining..

Alright – this was a total, compete fail.. I have to admit – the only reason I did this was to fit Alex Morgan’s photo into an article.. I’ll do better next time

What does Jeremy Lin mean for the New York Knicks?

Jeremy Lin led the New York Knicks to a win over the Los Angeles Lakers while pouring in 38 points and 7 assist. Now allow me to repeat that without laughing.

Let’s start with the...
