When I was born, my grandmother knitted me a quilt, as was a tradition in my family for many years. When my mom finally tried to give me that quilt this year, I was all, “But mom, I live in Florida, where we only use quilts to cover up our meth equipment when the cops come by to examine reports of chainsaw fights.” Plus, she knitted that quilt 33 years… I mean, 25 years ago, and it’s probably a little delicate. Anyway, no disrespect to my grandmother, but her quilt had nothing on the blanket one NBA fan apparently had made for his grandmother.
Yesterday, as I was shooting gravy intravenously, Minnesota Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio Tweeted a picture of a man’s grandmother, which is definitely much better than Shawn Kemp Tweeting a picture of your grandma, because this woman was holding up the giant quilt that she presumably received from her favorite little guy. As you can see, that’s a Ricky Rubio quilt.
It may haunt your dreams, but it will keep you oh-so-warm.
From what I can tell, the Tweeter in question submitted this portrait of Rubio to Photo Weavers, which actually turns your memories into blankets. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a picture of Kate Upton that would make a lovely set of couch cushions.
