Mitt Romney’s Presidential Debate ‘Big Bird’ Comment Apparently Enough to Pique Ricky Rubio’s Interest

Many of those who watched Wednesday's presidential debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney were enthralled by Romney's PBS comment.

"I'm sorry Jim. I'm gonna stop the subsidy to PBS. I'm gonna stop other things," Romney said to moderator Jim Lehrer, who works for PBS. "I like PBS, I like Big Bird, I actually like you too."

Wait, did Big Bird really just get referenced in our country's presidential debate? You bet, and that shocked a few, including Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio — at least according to teammate Kevin Love.

Check out Love's hilarious tweet, which was one of lots and lots of tweets about Big Bird on Wednesday night.
