Rock On: Utah has LeBron Syndrome (8 items)

By , Deseret News

RUMBLINGS

A new U.S. Geological Survey study confirms what Wasatch Front residents already knew: they’re in a high-risk area for earthquakes.

Fifteen other states had similar zones.

That’s not including Ohio, which only made the list for a 24-hour period after LeBron James announced he was coming home.

NEXT: JIMMER JUMP

1 of 8. JIMMER JUMP

Jimmer Fredette is possibly down to his last chance to stick in the NBA.

The former BYU star signed a one-year agreement with New Orleans for the league minimum, which is still roughly $1 million per season, $12,000 a game or — using last year’s stats — $3,500 per point.

Rock On thinks the NBA should save itself some angst and just pay everyone on commission.

2 of 8. THE BIG SCOOP

Chicago Bulls rookie Doug McDermott said in an ESPN online chat he won’t wear his trademark T-shirt beneath his uniform, now that he’s in the pros.

In other breaking news, Chris Kaman plans to trim his nose hairs once a month.

3 of 8. UNIFORMITY

Uniforms were a hot topic, last week, as various websites showed prototypes of a University of Utah jersey featuring mountains on the sleeves.

Rock On has a rule of thumb on uniforms: animals are OK; stripes are terrific. Landscape, seascape or food items belong at a county fair.

4 of 8. ANIMAL REACTION

Speaking of jerseys, the El Paso Chihuahuas Triple-A baseball team has produced a uniform featuring a dog’s face on the front.

The entire front.

Though it will be worn only for “Bark in the Park Night” in August, it has piqued considerable interest.

Note to BYU Cougars: Seriously, give this some thought.

Could a jersey with a cougar face be worse than the “bib” uniforms they once wore?


5 of 8. LOCKED AND LOADED

At Shooters Grill in Colorado, waitresses wear loaded six-shooters.

Which says nothing in particular, except it might not be the best place for Drew Brees to leave a $3 tip.
