This is how you cover the HIMYM finale?
"Ted and Robin dated early on in the show's history..."
Oh, really? That's how you would describe Ted and Robin's relationship?
DID YOU EVEN WATCH YOUR OWN PROGRAM?!
A more apt description would be "Ted and Robin dated but even after they broke up, Ted pined for her for years before finally letting go except - ha! - just kidding, he is still really in love with her and now that his wife is out of the way and the kid's blessed it, the last nine years are irrelevant."
