I’m a big Minnesota Timberwolves fan and have been since their inaugural season in 1989. However, in 1989 we didn’t have things like Twitter to keep up with players. Maybe that was a good thing in regards to some athletes and their bad habits, but these days I enjoy following my favorite players like Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio.
Earlier this week, Ricky tweeted out the above picture of a sleeping Michael Beasley which was taken during the team’s flight to Denver. It made me laugh but it also made me relate to these players a little bit. This is exactly something I’d do to one of my brothers or one of my friends. It helped me realize that yeah, these guys have millions of dollars and a huge amount of athletic talent, but they also like to do things that I enjoy. This might give me something to help start a conversation with Ricky should I ever run into him. Hey, it could happen! (Ricky if you need some help with a new website just let me know)
