Rubbing off

Matt and I try to make magazines when our kids aren”t looking, but inevitably they overhear and oversee talk of interviews, advertisers and photo shoots. Our journalist hats tend to stay on even when our shoes are off. And like everyone else with a journalism degree and a pulse, we”ve been jockeying for some of Jimmer Fredette”s time. Our pre-interview research has included watching YouTube videos about him playing basketball in the prison and his “no way” shots this year as a Cougar. Apparently, Carson (my first-grader) also saw us watch a video clip showing a contract Jimmer”s brother made him sign that said Jimmer would one day play professional basketball. My “nose for news” figured out Carson had seen that clip when I noticed a new wall hanging in his upstairs bedroom.
