On Monday I was "Jimmered" and "baptized by Jimmersion" all in one day!
|All I had was my lowly cell phone camera.|
It was pretty awesome. I wanted to take his picture, but I was hesitant and uncertain. Would he be annoyed at my intrusion? As I debated whether or not to be the paparazzi I texted my family and shared my excitement. My 15-year-old son texted back begging me to get Jimmer's autograph. Quickly I tore a page from my planner (that was all I had) and proceeded to get in line. (By then several fans had gathered around his table.)
He was having lunch with his girlfriend and they were both extremely gracious. They didn't seem to mind the interruptions, and I was impressed at how very kind and humble Jimmer was.
It's been 30 years since BYU men's basketball has made it to the Sweet 16. They play the Florida Gators today in New Orleans.
Go BYU! Go Cougars! Go Jimmer!
(And, thanks for letting me have my picture taken with you.)
