Emotions were running so high during the height of Linsanity that the ill-advised ESPN headline “Chink in the Armor” became a national scandal and its author, 28-year-old Anthony Federico, was fired despite multiple over-the-top apologies. A month later, the Knicks are back at .500, but all is forgiven for Federico, who had lunch with Lin yesterday. “The fact that he took the time to meet with me in his insanely busy schedule … He’s just a wonderful, humble person. He didn’t have to do that, especially after everything had kind of died down for the most part,” Federico told Newsday. “We talked more about matters of faith [and] reconciliation. We talked about our shared Christian values and what we’re both trying do with this situation.” Tim Tebow, take notes.
