Why does the baby have a Yale t-shirt on?

That was a sick game! I'm glad I didn't miss it.

Why does hedgehog live in Mississippi?

MI is Michigan, not Mississippi. MS is Mississippi.


I'm not sure why this story warrants a special article. It's not that impressive for a 9 month pregnant woman to actually leave her house and do something, especially if she's just sitting in a chair watching a game. It's not like she was playing in the game or something. She likely wouldn't have to rush to the hospital straight from game since contractions generally start far apart and gradually get closer together giving plenty of time to get to the hospital. Many women (especially with their first babies) go past their due date. Am I missing something about this being a special case? Lots of people are obsessed with Jimmer. I like him myself, but why should there be an article about a fan who didn't do something very amazing or impressive at all?

Risking the life of an unborn child for that is silly not worth it, he isno Danny Ainge.

He is however Adam Morrison.

This is news?

Would have liked to see the picture better, but the "play" menu was across the middle of the pictures. Is there anyway to correct that? Seems odd to cut them in half.

This is a great story! Anyone who says this isn't news is envious of Jimmer and BYU fans who have something to cheer for. I showed the pictures to my wife and we had a good laugh. Great story and it's fun to read something out of the ordinary for a change.

Emmer is one cute kid too!

You can't even stay away from this BYU article. Pathetic!

I think we all know that. It was a spin from Hedgie trying to be funny. Ute fans are something else.

Salt Lake City, UT

Great stuff!


"Before the NBA draft her parents figured theyd let Emma decide and only interfere if she wanted to be a Laker fan."

Rand, Chelsy, and Emma were in my BYU students' ward, and there couldn't be a nicer couple out there. Or a more devoted sports fan than Chelsy! Thanks for a great laugh, an awesome t-shirt, and for such adorable baby pics. Let's hope Emma's first words are, "Gooooo, Cougars!!!"

Flower Mound, TX

washcomom, if you move your cursor off the photo the "play" menu will disappear. You can scroll through the photos using the arrows above it and you won't get the "play" menu on it at all.

The trolls have no class, really. bballjunkie is right on. This is a fun article and I really like the nickname Emmer!

Go Jimmer and Emmer!
