Shanghai Sharks Fans Teaching Themselves How To Jimmer
Remember the hit song, “Teach Me How To Jimmer?”
Let’s go back in our DeLoreans and gun it to 2011.
Chinese Basketball superstar and BYU legend Jimmer Fredette are on a tear once again with the Shanghai Sharks. Fredette, in his second season with the organization, has been entertaining Sharks fans in China since he arrived from the United States.
Jimo Dashen as they call him in China has become a hero out in the world’s biggest country, and the Chinese natives are evening teaching themselves how to Jimmer.
Man, talk about memories right there. Teach me how to Jimmer! Yes, I was a proud owner of a Teach Me How To Jimmer t-shirt. I was rocking that thing proudly in 2011.
Simple times back then. We didn’t know how good it was in that moment. Jimmer was taking over the college basketball world, independence was exciting, and the football losing streak to Utah was only one-year at that point. It’s like looking through your Facebook profile pictures and you see your pictures from 2007 and then look down at yourself and think, what the Jimmer happened to me? That’s how I feel when watching this music video again.
Cougar fans were so full of life back then. Hipster life wasn’t a lifestyle yet at BYU. My Jimmer, life comes at you fast. Now we are seeing Teach Me How To Jimmer in China. Forget Mountain Dew, I’m still all jacked up on Jimmer as well.
