There’s been alot of talk lately about Roberto Luongo as the saviour of the Vancouver Canucks. AKA Hockey Goalie Jesus. I gotta agree, and I want to get in and help publicize that belief system. Look at the picture of Luongo above and tell me the resemblance isn’t uncanny. I thought not.
The only difference is that Luongo is still around and saving everything he touches. And not just performing net-miracles, he’s performing fan-miracles, and has taken a perenially underachieving hockey squad and made them contenders. For that let us give thanks.
