Last week, we had a story about Olympic runner Allyson Felix getting an opportunity to visit the set of ABC’s “Scandal” — and now, another gold medalist is getting the opportunity to do the same exact thing in “How I Met Your Mother.”
In a post on his Twitter page, Neil Patrick Harris posted the photo to the left of this article, and also attached the following message:
“Guess who visited HIMYM just now? Olympic Gold Medalist
@McKaylaMaroney ! Here I am pointing at her:”
Maroney is one of the few Olympians out there who at this point may be just as well-known online for a meme rather than just her talent. Thanks to a face she made during one of the individual competitions in London, the joke has been to splice her “not impressed” glare onto anything and everything. Luckily, there’s no reason for her to be doing anythere here from smiling from ear to ear. After all, you’re getting to see Barney Stinson all suited up!
“How I Met Your Mother” recently kicked off production for its eighth season, but set visits aside there are still plenty of questions as to what is going to come up for the show — including if this is the last year. Thanks to the uncertain future, this is the first time really in several years that the executive producers may have to plan on the fly depending on how negotiations with the cast end up going.
How jealous are you of Maroney at the moment for the chance to spend some quality time with NPH? The new season of “How I Met Your Mother” starts in exactly one month on September 24, so luckily you won’t have to go too much longer without seeing the man on your TV screen.
