If any of you don't know who Jimmer Fredette is, then I suggest you stop living in a cave and turn on the news:)  Well, if you don't live in Utah, then watch ESPN or any other sports station.  He is one of the most, if not THE most talked about college basketball players this year and he happens to play for my Alma Mater and employer, BYU!!  Yeah he's pretty awesome.  He shoots an average 26 points per game or something like that.  He scored 52 points against New Mexico in the Mountain West Conference Tournament.  That's crazy.  He is up for the College Basketball Player of the Year.  No big deal.  Let's just say that even President Obama is a fan of him and so is most of the country.

I don't want to leave out the rest of the basketball team he plays for.  The whole team is pretty awesome.  I just might have a little crush on Jackson Emery.  Don't worry, Eric is fully aware.  He might have a crush on Jimmer and that's OK.  Haha.  They are currently playing in the NCAA Tournament and made it to the Sweet Sixteen for the first time since 1981!!  Everyone in Utah is crazy about this team right now, and you should be too.  They play Florida tonight at 5:27 MT and everyone should watch the game even if you don't like Basketball or BYU.  It's going to be great, and I REALLY hope BYU wins.  That would be awesome.

I really am not a sports blogger of any sort (obviously), but I had to give a shout out to this awesome basketball team.  I'm so excited for them.  Here's to hoping for an Elite Eight appearance.  Go Cougars!
