The Sea Life Aquarium at the Mall of America will release the octopus "KLove" during a special event today at 3:30pmCT, the real Kevin Love is expected to be a part of the event and the release of his Octo-buddy!
In a press release the Sea Life Aquarium staff had this to say about the reason they chose an octopus to be named after Minnesota's newest and one of their biggest stars (along with Ricky Rubio, Vikings' Adrian Peterson and of course Twins' Joe Mauer). "Both the octopus, K-Love, and Kevin Love have excellent grabbing ability - one to grab boards, the other mainly grabs food. An octopus is also one of the smartest animals in the sea, while Kevin is surely one of the smartest on the court. Lastly, both Kevin and K-Love will be making Minnesota proud for many years to come."
That's all for now, thanks for reading HOWL and GO WOLVES!
