Before basketball season is completely over, I have to at least admit to my atypical obsession with BYU basketball. I think I have watched more BYU basketball games (and football) in my first year of graduate school than I did in all 5 years combined of undergraduate work. Can you blame me? Jimmer scores 52 points in 1 game and beats the all time scoring record. Emery beats the all time steals record. The team was ranked 3rd in the country for a week. I think the roots of my obsession started watching Julie play ball in middle and high school. And I attended every home boys basketball game in high school thanks to the Rhythm Bs and our half time performances.
I can't deny it-I have found myself searching YouTube and ESPN for new videos about the Cougars or Jimmer. I looked forward to waking up Monday after a Sunday night shift at the hospital to see the cougars new ranking. After a terrible day at school, watching the "Teach me how to Jimmer" video made me laugh and snap out of it... This is serious madness. But it was a seriously great video on YouTube.
Here are some favorites:
Let the true March Madness begin. Best of luck to the cougars.
