Tell the DMV you want a different plate number!

Jimmy's Sneakers

Jimmy wishes he could have that 5 minutes of his life back. Jimmy thinks Rock needs to search harder for story ideas instead of helping some real estate agent to some free publicity.


You can get Vanity plates any time. not just when you register the truck. go to the DMV and get new BYU plates. it would have taken less time then the interview for the article, or better yet, you should have requested them when you bought the truck.

Reality check!!

Get over it!!! It is just a license plate!!! If you can't laugh at the irony you don't you have a sense of humor.


Why didn't he just give them the plates back and say "I want different plates." A few years ago, I was given the choice to have the Arches plates or the skiing plates. I'm not quite sure why he just couldn't have said he wanted different plates. There is NO WAY I'd stick that on my car. I have no idea how he did.

RAMAUTE...I know someone with that one..that's a good one.


What a mistake I made in even reading a paragraph of this article...please print material that's real news.


I used to work at the DMV. It costs $10 to get a new plate and you can do that any time you want. If you want to be really extravagant you can spend $25 annually for a BYU plate, then we would all know that you're a BYU fan.


I'd be equally upset if I was issued "### BYU" or "### LDS" plates. It's just the luck of the draw...


There's worse things that can happen in life. . . like being a cougar fan.


I found the article amusing, whether or not different plates are readily obtainable. Perhaps he should have Kyle Whittingham autograph in bold pen his license plate!


RE: Reality Check!!
Obviously he has enough humor to allow an article to be written about this. And everyone else, this is a fun article, not meant to be taken seriously. My theory is, deep down he is a Ute thru and thru. Go Utes!


Seriously guys, if this story doesn't make you chuckle then you need to take a pill or something. Nothing wrong with stepping back and laughing at ourselves from time to time.


That was the stupidest article I've ever read!
Honestly, since when is a license plate fit for a newspaper?
Some people take football way too seriously.


Jimmy's Sneakers: I don't care what Jimmy has to say on the subject. I care about Jimmy's Sneakers opinion. Can you please share? Thanks.


What a devastating event in this poor mans life. One day, everything is fine. And then all of a sudden, your life is turned upside down. It truly show that we should value every good day in our lives, because we don't know what is around the corner for us. My prayers will be with this man, that he can overcome this unfortuate and tragic event.

Brad Rock is the man! Good story. Go Utes.


Philly, it's a column! And it's Brad Rock! I love irony, especially when it's this cruel.


Humorous article. Thanks for including it.


You've got to be kidding me. An article? About THAT? *sigh* Sad when THIS can be called news.....

Once enjoyed the news...

Wait, how is this news again?
