I'm *very* glad to hear confirmation that this is the final go-nowhere relationship of Ted's that we have to sit through before he meets The Mother...
Amen to that! Honestly, most of the episode felt like a waste of time. The scenes of Robin confessing more and more about the event to Lily as the years went by didn't seem very funny. It seemed like a way to stretch out the story and the Mike Tyson guest appearance to fill more of the half hour than it would have filled otherwise. I've been skipping some episodes this season out of weariness, maybe it's time to skip some more.
I felt that Mike Tyson did fine in his guest appearance, although I can't say that the role was the most challenging. But he just made a guest appearance in a dramatic role, in Law and Order SVU
on NBC, and he did okay there as well. For all I know he may do well in a later life career as an actor.
