I wish I was a little bit taller, wish I was a baller

Those of you who follow college basketball are probably aware of the buzz surrounding Jimmer Fredette. Those of you who don't could probably care less. I was watching something the other day and one of the people commented that Jimmer Fredette was just a good basketball name.

Um, what? The name Jimmer Fredette does little to conjure images of basketball in my mind. I can, however, think of a few other things the name Jimmer Fredette is well suited for:

- Panning for gold

- Milking cows

- Hunting raccoons

- Quilting

- Shearing sheep

- Frog gigging

- Making moonshine

- Rapping*

*Just kidding. Just wanted to see who was still paying attention.

Jimmer is like the name you would call yourself if your name was Jim and you were using the third person and were introducing yourself to me (the Billster) "Hey Billster, I'm the Jimmer."

I agree completely. How often does a person have TWO wacky names?
