    haha, pix. i bet you went to the extension school – you don't seem to know too much...

    anybody who graduated from the college would know that government (aka "gov") is the meathead/jock concentration. most psychology concentrators are also slackers. "Ec" is for the non-athletic tools.

    This morning on CNN, the reporter asked Lin, "In 10 years, what's more important on your resume - NBA, or degree from Harvard in economics?" Aha! I thought. NBA! if you're applying for a job from another Harvard alumnus ... Economics is legendary among students as the "gut" (easiest) major/concentration, chosen consistently and historically by jocks (Harvard has no PE courses for credit, let alone a degree). (Full disclosure: my degree from Harvard is in something else.) Good luck to him in everything!
