I have a soft spot for the underdog stories and this is definitely one that I love. It's something about being denied the opportunity to do something, or be something and then stepping right into the opportunity of a lifetime. A "Nobody" in some peoples eyes, is suddenly a "Somebody". However I would argue he was always a somebody, it just took everybody else to long to figure it out. He's also Harvard educated and the part I love is he is Christian. He gets my vote! I love the fact that he give Asians something to cheer about and be proud of. However I could care less what his race is, I love his story and what he stands for.
BTW I am a fan of New York Giants Victory Cruz and his underdog story as well. However I am a bigger fan of his "Salsa Dance"
