An Extra Moment: Sadness Over Whitney Houston's Death and 'Linsanity' Jeremy Lin

An Extra Moment: Sadness Over Whitney Houston's Death and 'Linsanity' Jeremy Lin

By Kenrick Rampersad

An Extra Moment in Sports

Bellisimo: This past weekend was perhaps one of the most emotionally trying and draining in recent memory. The death of Whitney Houston brought out both the positive and the negative in her history.

The emotions were evident during the 54th Grammy Awards at the Staple Center in Los Angeles, where among the glamour and the extravagance was a simple British girl turned super star who charmed everybody with real musical talent.

As always, though, sports were here to alleviate the sorrow. The Jeremy Lin story is really compelling and the nation has been taken by the "Linsanity". Then there`s Phil Mickerson, excellent father and family man staging a comeback to beat Tiger Woods and win the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro Am Golf tournament.

So sit back, relax and let Kenny entertain you...
