After his spotty performance last night, much is being made today of Roberto Luongo’s mental fortitude. This time, unlike other times, it’s not entirely unfair. Pulled for the second time in the Stanley Cup Final after allowing three goals in under five minutes in a crucial first period of Game 6, the Vancouver netminder is getting shredded coast to coast.
But enough about Luongo. On the topic of fortitude and shredding, this photo of Cory Schneider from last night’s game is the epitome of both. Pressed into relief duty, the Bostonian backup apparently took the opportunity to act out his lifelong fantasy of playing the entirety of Funkadelic’s Maggot Brain (greatest guitar solo ever) before a sold out TD Garden crowd.
Yeah, I find this photo odd.
So what kind of axe is Schneider’s air guitar, anyway? One can only imagine.
Talented ‘shopper @canuckletess thinks it’s a blue Fender. Solid choice — Schneider definitely seems more like a J.J. Cale or Clapton fan. He also seems like the sort of guy who would coordinate his axe and his outfit.
In the words of Otto Mann, “You know those guitars that are, like, double guitars?” Blue Fenders are cool, but @jaymecochrane pictures Schneider as a little more 80s hair metal. The David Lee Roth of goaltenders.
Think you have a better handle on Schneider’s visualized git-box? This is a treasure trove of photoshopping opportunity. Send us your best guess at firstname.lastname@example.org.
