Minnesota Timberwolves fans show How I Met Your Mother got it right

Published Add your comment

It is the trade we have been waiting for all summer, after LeBron James went to the Cleveland Cavaliers, all focus has been on Minnesota Timberwolves Power Forward Kevin Love.

The Cavaliers have certainly been the NBA's most productive team this off-season after landing the league's biggest free-agent and convincing LeBron to return home.

Since 'King James' returned, all eyes have moved to the Minnesota Forward with many expecting a trade deal to be completed.

Now it seems like that deal is in place and the people of Minnesota need no help in venting their frustrations, because they don't have any.

When LeBron left Cleveland four years ago, and Miami now, there was raw emotion felt, burning his jerseys condemning him etc.

Love is set to leave Minnesota and, well, the people of Minnesota couldn't really be any nicer about it.

As shown in the video below:

When a self-proclaimed long time Timberwolves fan tries to rally the masses into public displays of anti-Love, people seem to do the opposite.

with responses ranging from "its cold here, our team sucks, I kind of get it" to "instead of burning his jersey, can we send him a thank you card?"

It truly is the Minnesota way to react to news about one of your beloved sports stars and it does go to prove that popular US TV show 'How I Met Your Mother' had it spot on.

Marshall Eriksen - the perfect Minnesota native

It may have wrapped up its final ever season, but TV Show How I Met Your Mother has been proven to have given a very accurate portrayal of the Minnesota natives through the character Marshall Eriksen.

In the show, there are scenes where Eriksen is too nice to ignore a phone call, or not answer the phone in the politest way possible or not let a friend down on their luck go without some help.

Comparing Eriksen to some of the people in the Love video really does show you what being from the Gopher State entails.

That is however, unless you're addressing the Green Bay Packers or driving through the state of Wisconsin.
