Really? Idol worship?

A few days ago a female student at BYU posted, on their website, some comments that compared the current fever on campus around Jimmer Fredette to idol worship.  She then made the mistake (?) of posting about her letter to the editor on Facebook.

In less than 8 hours, her Facebook post had been "Jimmered" with over 500 posts and comments.  The news of what happened went viral and there were stories on NBCSports,, CBSSports, and several other sizeable news outlets.  Read about it here or click This Link (you may need to use firefox to get all comments) for the full Facebook post and all associated comments.

My good friend (since way back in high school!) Craig texted me to clue me in on this and I spent my whole lunch break at work that day reading the post and comments.  Here were my personal Top 3 favorites:
 - While playing Scrabble if you happen to spell the word Jimmer you automatically win ... forever.
 - Jimmer Fredette doesn't need a TWITTER account, he is already following you.
 - A little known fact is that Jimmer has appeared in every Star Wars film to date.  Jimmer played the role of "The Force."

It just goes to show that you can't mess with "The Jimmer"
... at least not this year or at BYU anyway!  :)
