Day 26 - Not so sweet sixteen
The BYU Basketball team was chomped on March 24, 2011 by the Florida Gators after a courageous battle on the court that even extended into OT. It was in this time that they decided to give up the fight, lie down and get chomped on.
The 2010-2011 team led an impressive year with a 30-4 record. They were adored by the best fans in the world. They were a beacon of light that shined not only in Provo but even up north to the "other" school where, though they won't admit it, the "others" cheered for these Cougars and their leading man, Jimmer. It was this season where the Jimmer shined exceedingly and caught the attention of the nation. Yet, not only did they succeed on the court but they also succeeded academically. It is possible that this Jimmer will change the english language forever by adding the verb, "Jimmered." Lastly, even when it was hard, they still stuck to their morals.
The 2010-2011 BYU basketball team is survived by their many adoring fans, the "others" up north, the college basketball nation, Jimmer t-shirt makers, and many more that there is simply not enough room to write. A funeral was already held in the broken hearts of all the BYU basketball fans after their tragic chomping. In lieu of flowers, please buy a Jimmer t-shirt of your choice, a Jimmer/Romney bumper sticker or vote for Jimmer for the Naismith award.

Can you tell I was depressed? I seriously get so upset and was upset for a whole week. I literally wanted to eat chocolate so bad this night but alas Paleo strictness prevailed.
