Roberto Luongo’s suspected twitter account provides some suspect pickup lines

One of the major differences between this NHL lockout and the lockouts that occurred in 2004-05 and 1994-95 is the advent of Twitter, giving teams, media, and players a direct conduit to fans. The NHLPA has encouraged their constituents to communicate their frustration with Gary Bettman and the owners through Twitter, to the point that many of the player accounts seem completely homogeneous.

There is one player’s Twitter account, however, that will always be completely and utterly unique: strombone1. The all-but-verified account of a certain French-Italian-Canadian netminder for the Vancouver Canucks is an endless source of bizarre non-sequiturs , love for reality TV, and an obsession for literal toilet humour, generally at his own expense.

No other NHL player would start a hashtag full of terrible pickup lines entirely making fun of himself. The pseudonym’d Roberto Luongo distracted hockey fans nation-wide from the lockout with the #StrombonePickupLines hashtag and the results are ridiculous, hilarious, and frequently filthy. Be forewarned.

The whole thing got started when the slightly less funny, but still pretty good #DavidBoothPickupLines caught Luongo’s attention and he contributed the best tweet of the bunch.

That’s when it became clear that Luongo was far more ripe for the picking when it came to pickup line jokes. Luongo clearly agreed.

    A person who fails falls and decides its to hard to get back up. A person who succeeds falls but decides to get up again and again until they succeed not because its the easy thing to do but because they realize most things in life never are. We all have a choice to stay down when we fall because things get tough or to get up again and keep living life.

    When you don’t see the light at the end of the tunnel, you should remember that Lou is a TORCH BEARER and he should just let that torch he once held be his guide thru the tunnel and hold on to that part of you and will help you gain back that confidence to wether the storm like a lost sailor in the sea in a storm you will find that light of hope.
