Rubio retweeted a pic of grandma holding items branded with his image, including a blanket
22-year-old basketball player Ricky Rubio, playing for the Minnesota Timberwolves, has retweeted an adoring fan's photo this Christmas.It appears Dean Pierce, using the twitter handle @ondeckdean, originally posted the photo of this blanket with the professional Spanish player's face on it.
Pierce, who describes himself as an NBA fanatic from Minnesota, probably comes from a family of sports lovers.
He commissioned the creative and practical piece of artwork as a gift, most likely for his grandma, featured above.
Grandma is featured in the photograph with other Ricky Rubio memorabilia, including the autographed picture that served as a model for the blanket.
Pierce tweeted Rubio with the message “Mom had a very Ricky Christmas! Grandma loves you! Feliz Navidad!,” a posting that was spread by the player himself.
