Roberto Luongo was pulled from the net early in the third period of last night’s 4-1 loss to the Dallas Stars. It was a tough night for the Canucks’ netminder as he let in the 4 goals on only 19 shots in 42 minutes of work.
Shortly after being pulled, the cameras caught Luongo on the bench making the above face. Was he replaying the goals in his head? Sucking on a sour candy? Fighting off a stomach ache?
With the help of the Twittersphere, I was able to discover some possibilities. In fact, I received the highest number of submissions ever for a CHB Top 10.
Thus, here are the Top 10 Things Roberto Luongo was Thinking While on the Bench:
HM: “That puck went left and I went right… kinda looked like this.” – submitted by @WestCoastRidrz
HM: “I wonder if I can get me one if those turkey legs now.” – submitted by @snacktalker
10: “In Florida, they don’t play defense either but they at least let me see the puck.” – submitted by @Aviewfromabroad
9a: “I wonder if I can use how much my twitter account is worth to buy out my contract.” – submitted by @paulalmeida22
9b: “I sure hope this doesn’t affect my Twitter account value.” – submitted by @codybarendregt
9c: “My Twitter account’s value increased by $433.20 to $270,838.80.” – submitted by @DustinStadnyk
9d: “I wonder how this affects my Twitter account’s value.” – submitted by @Shazmodius
These 4 replies are a reference to a couple of tweets that came from Luongo’s account over the past couple days from a website or app that claims to measure your Twitter value. Luongo has since deleted the tweets.
8: “I should check my iPad to see how Carey Price did tonight.” – submitted by @PPGoose
7: “I feel like Rodney Dangerfield: no respect, I tell ya.” – submitted by @watsukoguy
6: “They told me I’d be seeing stars here in Dallas, but this is ridiculous.” – submitted by @jaybizzones
5a: “Repeat of Anaheim in 3….2…” – submitted by @Rozzy80
5b: “I better hit the sandbox!!!” – submitted by @pat_pendergast
5c: “Oh damn, I hope that wasn’t a shart!” – submitted by @DevrieBeckett
5d: “Crap. Did I remember to flush?” – submitted by @lyteforce
You can never go wrong with toilet humour. The tweet from @Rozzy80 is a reference to the famous playoff game of May 2007 when backup Dany Sabourin had to fill in for Luongo in a playoff game – in overtime no less – for a few minutes while Luongo had an untimely case of diarrhea.
4: “I wonder if Bryz will let me into his humongous, big universe…” – submitted by @RogerWi1co
3: “Now is as good a time as any to pull off my best Jean Chrétien impression.” – submitted by @Swizzler16
2: “Milk hot dogs.” – submitted by @JoshuaDykstra12
1: “Dear Santa: This year I want a new bike, a red wagon, and peace on earth…..” – submitted by @b_cmack
