i feel it is my duty to document this momentous occasion.

unless you've been living under a rock for the past few days, you know all about the letter to the editor that this girl michelle peralta wrote the daily universe concerning byu's "idol worship" of jimmer fredette.

in the off chance you haven't already read it:

Letter: Idol worship

Mon, 02/07/2011 - 21:02
I can’t walk across campus without hearing Jimmer Fredette’s name a dozen times. His name comes up everywhere: in class, at work, during lunch …  really, people? Cut it out with the Jimmer worship. Last time I checked, idol worship was very much frowned upon in the scriptures.
Don’t you have a life to live? Then quit wasting it in front of the TV or in lines at the Marriott Center.
At the very least, stop trying to convert those of us who don’t follow BYU sports and don’t care that baseball and badminton are two different things. Pushing basketball on us isn’t going to make us like it any better.
I’m not blaming Jimmer for all this; was it Nephi’s fault in the Book of Mormon when his brothers worshiped him? As far as I’m concerned, Jimmer is perfectly free to live his dreams. If he reaches his goals and lives his dreams, more power to him. I would like the same courtesy from his fans: let me live my own dreams in peace, even if they don’t include ever sitting in the Marriott Center screaming my brains out.

the past few days since this (literally, three days ago now) ALL of byu campus has been going NUTS about this article. today i picked up a copy of the daily universe myself and EVERY SINGLE letter to the editor was bashing this michelle girl! completely hilarious. the whole byu-facebook world has exploded, too, with countless groups just poking fun at her. all day yesterday when i was studying in the library, all the students around me on the computers were at http://michellegotjimmered.com/ and laughing up a storm reading all of the posts. my spanish teacher yesterday even declared that he was going to make it his own personal vendetta to make some kind of jimmer reference in every single class for the rest of the semester (and this is a daily class). so far, he has been completely [and hilariously] successful.

basically, this is putting byu on the map, as news stations such as espn have even picked up the story about this girl and her now infamous letter to the editor. i myself am a proud member of one of the 'jimmer fan clubs' : JIMMER LOVE. you can join it if you click here: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=134770566589133
all in all, this is really just something funny and i think it's fun to just laugh at. so here are some of my favorite jimmer pictures, although you probably thought you saw them all (:
ps here's the link if you haven't read the string of funny threads to this poor girl's facebook page: http://vrusp.com/jimmered/
