Thread: Did Ben Braun Confuse Jeremy Lin with a Porn Star?

  1. #1

    Did Ben Braun Confuse Jeremy Lin with a Porn Star?

    According to an interview at SFGate:

    "I wanted to play in the Pac-10 really, really badly because I grew up there. I wanted to play at Stanford. So Stanford, Cal and UCLA didn't really want me ... Funny story, the (Cal) coach called me Ron because he mistakenly called me Ron Jeremy ... I was like, well, I guess I'm not going to Cal."

    Ron Jeremy Lin is a great ball handler. Can really pound it inside when the opportunity arises, too.

    What I think is equally if not more humorous is the fact that you must have known who/what "Ron Jeremy" is when you read this story, same for Jeremy Lin. Yikes, all 3 of you guys (Braun, too) are in the gutter, 4 if you count Ron Jeremy himself.
    Not that there's anything wrong with that, I suppose.

I called Joe Pasternak to come see Jeremy play and he was there the next day to watch him live with me. He wanted Jeremy badly and set up a game day visit at Haas. for Jeremy and his family. it was the OSU weekend game where we played poorly and lost and Jeremy's coach host was Ben's assistant Louis Reynaud. Louis did not do his homework and called Jeremy "Ron" upon introduction to Jeremy and his family. Mrs Lin was very upset and needless to say despite an offer of "4 for 3" (come for 4 years and after the first year the last 3 years will be scholarship). Jeremy pursued Harvard and the rest is history. To Louis's credit, he was later embarrassed and came down to my area to personally apologize. The staff had already committed a scholarship to the European guard and all other roster positions were set for Jeremy's incoming year.
