Unfortunately, the series finale of the legen ... wait for it ... dary television series "How I Met Your Mother" will air next Monday night. After nine seasons, the show has gained quite the following because of its mixture of comedy and romance. If the writers and producers of the show were to do it all again with athletes, here's who they'd cast the main roles of the show.
Yes, Shaun White isn't a woman, but c'mon, did you see him at the Olympics? He looked more like a Lily than any other character on the show, that's for sure. His red hair matches that of Lily and much like Lily is a traditional artist, White is an artist in his own right while cruising through the air on a skateboard or snowboard.
Generally regarded as the best female hockey player in the world, Wickenheiser would make the perfect Robin. For one, she's Canadian and loves hockey just like Robin. Secondly, she actually sort of resembles the show's current Robin. Maybe people wouldn't even notice the difference.
The similarities between Mauer and Marshall go on and on. They're both from Minnesota and are involved in the sports teams that are stationed there (Marshall is an avid Vikings fan), they both are very tall (almost like Minnesota Lumberjacks) and they both can be funny when need be.
Even though he doesn't exactly look like Ted, Lofton could still play him well. He's played for 11 different MLB teams, just like Ted has dated several different women, taking forever to find the right one. Lofton did seem to have one real home and that was with the Indians, who happen to play in Cleveland, Ted's hometown.
Quite the womanizer in his own right, Manziel could play Barney well. Thinking back to several situations that Barney has put himself in, it isn't hard to think of Manziel being in those same situations himself. Beyond that, once he's drafted this April, Manziel will have quite the hefty playbook. It can't measure up to "The Playbook" authored by Barney, but overall, he comes pretty close.
