UPDATE: Entertainment Weekly’s Popwatch got a video from Josh Radnor showing Ted Mosby’s reaction: here! He cries for a bit as I suggested; not for 5-seconds, but still.
[Originally titled, “Would’ve been fun to see Ted Mosby react to LeBron’s return to Cleveland “]
On How I Met Your Mother, there was a running gag where Ohio native Ted Mosby is continuously bitter about LeBron James leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2010 to play for the Miami Heat (and supposedly up his chances of getting a ring by playing with other superstars).
With King James going back to Cleveland, I just find it a shame that HIMYM didn’t run a little bit longer so we could see Ted’s response. A 5-second joke involving Theodore Evelyn Mosby crying might’ve worked.
