Canucks and Beyond

From Kit Amundson at Examiner.com:
It was amusing to watch the crew from E! interview [Joe] Thornton. They informed him that they had decided he was one of the “Hot Guys in Hockey” and wanted to know how he felt about it. What’s he going to say? Being the nice guy that he is Thornton said he was flattered. As if that wasn’t enough, E! then asked him who else in the NHL he thought was hot…...and being a good sport by answered Luongo, “a nice dark good looking Italian guy.”
Immediately following the fluff questions, Thornton was asked by the Canadian media who at the game really stood out in his mind as outstanding players. First guy Thornton names is Luongo again.
I couldn’t resist, when my turn came, then to ask him what he thought the odds were that a guy he thought was hot was also good? He said maybe I shouldn’t quite word it quite that way.
Poor Joe. But that’s what you get for talking to E!
P.S. More on Luongo at the ASG from George Richards of the Miami Herald.
