Our old friend @thecraiger was in town over the weekend to take in a Jays game. Lucky for him he sat right behind Vancouver Canucks netminder Roberto Luongo…or at least a ringer for Bobby Lu. Needless to say, @thecraiger was not too impressed with him, and makes Bobby last Saturday’s 500 Level Fan of the Game:
Was he a coward? No. Did he let the entire city down? No. Was he a overpaid ‘elite’ NHL goalie who’s wife has such a lack of respect for him that she wouldn’t move to Vancouver to support her husband? No. But wow, did he ever look like the Vancouver Canucks net minder Roberto Luongo. His looks, general demeanor, and mannerisms make me happy to announce the 500 Level Fan of the game simply as ‘Lou’.
His emotions during the Saturday April 28th game against Seattle when a grand slam flew off the bat of Edwin Encarnaceon said it all – he was a laid back dude with no heart or passion for the game- like Lou. However, unlike the real Lou there was no way knowing if this Lou was a person dripping with utter cowardice and arrogance.
Cheers to this Lou, and anti-cheers to his greasy hair, teammates in Vancouver, and the cowardice that is forever embedded in the Luongo name.
