Nobody likes counter-culture snobs and knobs, except for other contrarians, who take a weird pride in hating going with the grain of what's highly liked and approved of by the masses.

Yes, how dare anyone hate on Jimmer, I ask?

In this morning's Layup Line I linked to a female's letter, one she wrote to the Brigham Young University student newspaper, The Daily Universe (yep, that's what it's called), vocalizing her disdain for the hero worship heaped on BYU's biggest basketball star in program history.

She probably should have kept her agitation at that. Instead, she took to Facebook — a new, deft tactic, to be certain — and broadcast her latest penning to the press. From there, BYU fans lurched on to her then-public profile (it has since gone private, according to my tipster) and spammed the ever-living crap out of her wall.

It is a comedic gold mine, one I urge you to set aside eight minutes to scroll through and read. Here's how the chain starts.



It's another great case of the Internet doing something incredible through word of click/link. The best part is, this isn't mean-spirited. It's entirely jocular and a terrific group-oriented online prank. The whole thing, according to my tipster, began late last night at Cougarboard.com. The posters on the site have certainly "won the Internets," as they say, for today. Heck, maybe the whole month. That's the kind of power we're dealing with here, thanks to Jimmer.

Other highlights not seen from the screen grab above, many of which make allusions to Mormonism. I'll only pick six, though I could list about 20.

  • "JIMMER IS THE GOLDEN CALF!!!!!!!"
  • "if Jimmer is nephi that makes tre'von willis laban"
  • "sullinger wears red, kemba wears blue, but they will get jimmered, oh and your facebook will too"
  • "I noticed in your letter that you accidentally forgot to capitalize some of your pronouns when you referred to The Jimmer. I am sure He doesn't appreciate that."
  • "Jimmer can kill two stones with one bird."
  • "jimmerboard.net because he never hits rim."

 Must be a very slow news day. Folks, "This is America, you can do anything you want in America as long as you are willing to pay the consequences, this is America". Everyone has the right to have an opinion, speak freely as they want and have another disagree. Doing it  with civilty for each other is paramont. So writer and responders, have a great day. Yep must be a very slow news day. I think BYU will make the NCAA tournament and as usual, be one and done, maybe this year two games. I hope I am wrong, as Coach Rose does a great job with the team.

I tried to go to the HFAC show, but Jimmer stole it.

"And God saith, thou shalt henceforth name thy first born male, Jimmer, and first-born female, Jimrette.  Thou shalt not use the name of The Jimmer without preceding his name with the article THE.  Thou shalt not make graven images of The Jimmer lest he be holding the orange orb by Spalding, Wilson, or Nike.  Thou shalt honor Thy Jimmer and Thy The Jimmer."  Hesitations 4:44
The first coming of The Jimmer shall precede the second coming of Jesus but follow the first coming of the Messiah.  So as not to be confused, Jesus will henceforth have a different shoe contract than BYU and/or The Jimmer, after first consulting with The Jimmer.  Finally, if and when there is a vacancy in the Trinity due to the death, resignation, or firing of either the Father, the Son, or the Holy Ghost, The Jimmer will have first refusal to fill such vacancy. Signed, the Prophet of the Forty Acres.

As far as I'm concerned, Jimmer is the second coming of Jesus. I've watched every single BYU game this year because I just LOVE seeing him play. He's just amazing! I worship Jimmer. He's the best player I've EVER seen. I think his god-like powers exceed even those of Tim Tebow now. If this guy leads BYU to a championship..... then the christians better crucify him before Mormanism and Jimmer convert everybody else!
