Jeremy Lin hopes to meet President Obama

Jeremy Lin has read and heard all the nice things President Barack Obama has said about him. He would like to thank him in person.

Recently, President Obama told Grantland.com that he has “been on the Jeremy Lin bandwagon for a while.”

“That’s part of the Harvard network and being a part of the Harvard family,” Lin said. “It means a lot. They support me as I support them. I got a chance to meet with (Secretary of Education) Arne Duncan and work out with him last year. That was a pleasure. Maybe sometime, somewhere down the road I can meet the president as well.”
