Found May 28, 2012 on The Last Angry Fan:
Wonder if he fits safely and securely in the overhead storage compartment? Ricky Rubio wasn’t going to let a little thing like picking his brother up at the airport to get in the way of watching the Western Conference finals, but I have no idea why he’d choose to sit on the airport’s baggage carousel rather than a nice comfy lounge where he can sit in a soft but supportive leather chair while sipping a mojito, sloe gin fizz, or other fancy schmancy drink.  At least he’s keeping the knee he’s rehabbing elevated. Anyone else not surprised that Rubio got away with doing this a mere three feet or so from a sign that says “Danger, Keep Off?”  First off that is one mighty empty airport, so I doubt there was anyone around to catch Rubio flagrantly flouting the rules, and even if there was, I doubt the Timberwolves guard would get in any real trouble anyway, thanks to his overwhelming adorableness.
