Poker questions only, Play Now Poker insisted when they solicited asks for Roberto Luongo last Friday. Yeah, good luck with that. It quickly became apparent that the questions most had for Luongo were only tangentially related to poker.
That in mind, Play Now has decided to give the people what they so clearly want. On Tuesday, they released a video in which the questions put to Luongo are finally hockey-related. You’re welcome, masses! Of course, they’re not the hockey questions you’re thinking of. Instead, we get questions that are now only tangentially related to hockey — pablum like Who do you think is the best hockey player of all-time? and Who on the Canucks would be the best candidate for The Bachelor? (The answer: Higgins, because abs.)
Sure, it’s a step in the right direction, but this is pretty clearly Play Now and Luongo firing back at those of us that inundated their Twitter Q&A with snark. And in case it wasn’t clear that they’re trolling everyone, the first question is about Draft Day.
And to further cement this video’s place in the Luongo-trolls-Vancouver Hall of Fames, consider this exchange:
“What teammate from the past would you like to see on the Canucks again?”
Granted, Luongo is laughing as he says it. Is this evidence that he’s starting to come to terms with the situation?
Maybe. Or maybe he’s just in a jovial mood because survived to Day 2 of the WSOP, as you can see in this mini-documentary from Poker Listings:
