Hope comes in a cup of coffee. Yoshi, the subject of this short documentary, epitomizes the saying “Do small things with great love.”

Yoshi’s Blend (directed/edited/shot by Mackenzie Sheppard)

Meet Yoshi Masuda, a Nagoya University professor who is sharing what he loves most—coffee—with survivors of the 2011 Japan earthquake and tsunami. He runs HOPE Cafe out of a vintage Volkswagen van, bringing free coffee (organically grown, carefully brewed) and a sense of normalcy to the devastated area.

Grantland’s Jay Caspian Kang posted this video by Mega Ran and also wrote a thoughtful piece about Jeremy Lin. Kang is so on target about why Linsanity has taken off:

Basketball is at its best when five guys who love to play with one another outhustle and outplay a more talented opponent. It’s why March Madness still remains a viable institution, despite a gulf of talent separating college ball from the pros. It’s why every basketball movie follows the same storyline — some cute cartoons are outmatched by some cartoon aliens. They use teamwork to make the dream work. The Linsanity Knicks run hard, play unselfishly, chest-bump, and play with a swagger that has nothing to do with the other team.


Jeremy Lin does it again, he now has scored 130 points in his first five starts, passing Shaq for the most since the ABA-NBA merger. Tonight, he caps a miraculous comeback against the Raptors with THIS shot.

Hat tip to Philip Bump for the video

Giants = All In. Knicks = All Lin. (though he’d be the first to say it was a team effort…which he just did in the postgame news conference)
