Pathetic Me

 I am NOT one to cry about sports.

No, not me.

But knowing the Jimmer era at BYU over makes me cry.


I feel so pathetic about feeling this way because the very last thing I wanted to do was be a part of this whole Jimmermania craze.

In fact, early in the season I was adamant that it wasn’t going to get to me.

But the guy can P.L.A.Y.

The guy can S.H.O.O.T.

The guy is absolutely A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. to watch.

So today I mourn that I can’t watch Jimmer play tomorrow.



  1. It's probably pregnancy hormones. But I was sad, too. ♥

  2. I mostly feel sad for Jackson and Jimmer. I've been part of Jimmermania since he was a freshman. We met him several times during BYU basketball camps, (I even yelled at him when he was officiating Tom's All-Star game there....I know, so unlike me).

    When a virtuous, humble priesthood holder makes the cover of Sports Illustrated two weeks in a row and three times for a season...I am happy. Hopefully, we will see more positive, hard-working role models in the future.

    Feeling blessed for the journey!

    Love form Tooele,
    Anne the crazy sports fan!!!

  3. Ah Anne, that cracks me up! You yelled at Jimmer? There is a tick mark by your name!!

    Darla- Yay for sports! Right? Did those boys drag you into the Jimmermania?? Can't wait for football season. You better have those boys brief you! How are you feeling??

  4. I too was sad - so much so I didn't sleep the night after they lost. If only that foul shot would have dropped. I feel so sorry for them. What an emotional year it has been. I guess I need to look for the positive things that happened during this amazing year of BYU basketball!
