The Bed Intruder Gets Jimmered

Feb 11, 2011   //   by JimmerPOY   //   Jimmer Evangelism, Jimmer in Motion, Jimmerisms  //  Comments Off

You and 71 million others have seen the Ben Intruder. Get ready for the Court Intruder. Lyrics and credits can be found below.

You might recognize the video’s talent from another popular spoof, BYU Library’s “New Spice”. It is far and away the best Old Spice commercial spoof on YouTube, so check it out if you haven’t already.

LYRICS:
He’s drainin’ all his free throws
He’s layin’ the b-ball up
Tryin’ to make it, so ya’ll need to
Tell yer friends, tell yer wife (x 3)
And tell Dickie V cuz he’s averagin’ 28 in here

But your dream’s the NBA draft
We’ll be lookin’ for you
They gon’ sign you, They gon’ sign you

So you can go and chase that, go and chase that, go and chase that
Homeboy, home, home, homeboy

I’ve seen your jumper and your crossover and all
You are so good, you are really good, fo real

You are really really really really so good
Jimmer Fredette breaks ankles with his crossovers

So good, so good, so good, Sooooo

He’s drainin’ all his free throws
He’s layin’ the b-ball up
Tryin’ to make it, so ya’ll need to
Tell yer friends, tell yer wife (x 3)
And tell Dickie V cuz he’s averagin’ 28 in here

But your dream’s the NBA draft
We’ll be lookin’ for you
They gon’ sign you, They gon’ sign you

So you can go and chase that, go and chase that, go and chase that
Homeboy, home, home, homeboy

The Jimmer and The Dan Patrick Show

Feb 11, 2011   //   by JimmerPOY   //   Jimmer Evangelism  //  Comments Off

Another excellent interview with Jimmer broadcast to a national audience. Obviously he is best player in the nation, but the reason he’s getting so much national attention is because he’s a great interview. He is eloquent, he is prepared, and he isn’t cocky. Jimmer can walk the walk and talk the talk.

National POY Straw Poll #3 is All Jimmer

Feb 11, 2011   //   by JimmerPOY   //   Jimmer Evangelism, Stats & Facts, The Competition  //  Comments Off

Pollsters are beginning to see what all the hype is about. In the most recent straw poll conducted by AnnArbor.com, Jimmer Fredette is comfortably in first place as National Player of the Year. The straw poll voters are comprised of journalists who are voters in one of the three POY awards at the end of the season.

Jimmer has moved one spot in each of the straw polls, having started at third in poll #1, and moving to second in poll #2. Also of note is recognition of JimmerPOY.com and other social media platforms that have added to the Jimmermania across the country.

Do Not Mess With The Jimmer

Jimmer has quickly become one of the most respected and loved basketball players in the country. In Provo (home to BYU), he is reverenced. He is worshiped. He is idolized.

Apparently there is one BYU student who doesn’t get the hype. In a letter to the editor of the school’s Daily Universe, she wrote:

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…

…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.

Unfortunately for the Jimmer-unbeliever, she signed the letter with her real name. To make matters worse, she posted a status update to her open Facebook wall a few hours later:

Within a few hours she would come to realize that Jimmer has many loyal Jimmerites. One of his followers posted a link to the original letter on a fan message board. Quickly, the board users found her Facebook profile, then her status update, and The Jimmer floodgates opened.

In one hour, over 250 messages were posted to her wall. In no particular order, here are 10 of the best:

As a poster put it succinctly, this young lady got Jimmered. And thus we learn that thou shalt not mess with The Jimmer.

Update 3: FrontRowFanatics have extended an olive branch to Michelle, the now infamous Jimmer non-believer. Great stuff.

Update 2: As of 5:00pm EST, this story has been reported by the following national sports websites: ESPN, Yahoo, CBS Sports, NBC Sports.

Update 1: After nearly 600 Facebook took their shot on her wall, she closed access to the thread. You can read the thread in its entirety here.
