I haven't gotten crazy into Jimmermania but I can definitely appreciate a good Jimmer quote/joke when I hear one.  I laughed out loud when I just read this one:

"When you see only one set of footprints, it was then that Jimmer carried you." 
(found it here)

Seriously my favorite of the bordering on sacrilegious jokes I've been hearing ever since this was posted in the Daily Universe and the Facebook aftermath ensued.  I think this is my favorite because I served my mission in the south where the footprints poem has basically been canonized.  I kid you not...I actually had someone quote the poem to me as if it was scripture...on multiple occasions.  And there was basically a gigantic framed copy of the thing in every house I went in.  Not that there is anything wrong with this poem -- I'm pretty sure I used it in a spiritual thought at girls camp once or twice.  But it gets a bit old after a while.  So I thought the new Jimmer version was extra special.  

So what are your favorite Jimmerisms?

I LOVE THIS JOKE! He's such a fabulous player and adorable young man. He really does carry the team most of the time, with the exception of Jackson Emery!
