Luongo’s New Mask


“It’s a couple weeks late, just like my game.”

—Roberto Luongo, on receiving his new mask (via Canucks.com which adds:  “Criticizing Luongo has apparently become so popular that the man himself is taking shots at the man himself.”)

Thought he’d never get rid of that fugly dirt-white one. This gets my stamp of approval.

I assume he’s getting more than a free helmet to wear a REEBOK billboard on his head.

Is it just me or does the positioning of the picture on his mask equate his face with a lumberjack’s crotch?

Haha, shame on you for making me imagine that. I really can’t say what he’s going for with this helmet. I assume he designed it like most goaltenders tend to do.

Lumberjack? I thought it was the guy from the Pringles can.

Pretty sure that is supposed to be Luigi, from mario bros

It’s a very unhappy Luigi if that’s the case. Possibly because he was left in his brother’s shadow. It still looks too Russian to be Luigi. He should’ve gotten Save By the Bell’s Slater on his mask. That would have made more sense.
