In case you didn't know, I live in Utah and I'm just on the other side of town from Brigham Young University (BYU). We've (of course the entire state is taking credit for this) been absolutely blessed to have the top college basketball player in the country on the BYU team. Jimmer Fredette grew up back east, but now that he's put in his time at BYU, the state of Utah will claim him forever (I'm not exaggerating).
Jimmer-mania has swept the city, state, and country. This kid is amazing! What's even more amazing is that he's humble enough to make sure people remember that it's a team effort and he's pretty good about sharing the ball during the games rather than keeping it to himself. He's getting praise for his talents from every possible direction, too. I think people are happy to cheer for a talented player who is also a really great human being as well.
One of the perks of having some Photoshop skills is that I can do really silly things to prank my friends. I work with the most amazing person who also happens to be our chaplain at Heritage. For Halloween last year she dressed up "gangsta" style. I took that photo of her and combined parts from a Jimmer photo. The result - Chaplain Tami has been Jimmered!!
