Twitter's basically exploded into a nasty game of Broken Telephone with everyone and their dog just retweeting the same link(s) to Luongo's radio interview yesterday, but I did manage to catch this little tidbit amongst the mess of "not-news" - this thread's guaranteed to get locked, but I'm bored and some of us could probably use a laugh...

Perhaps he accepted a trade on the condition that he get an extra treat on game days and no more baths?

I doubt Luongo would want to leave Vancouver to go to Toronto. His wife would not approve.

Felix the Cat will return as a robot saviour for the laffs, you heard it here first.

"What players need is the right kind of strength and power. That includes learning to understand that leverage and positioning can be just as important as raw strength when it comes to winning battles in the game. It's more about timing and athleticism --and avoiding injury--than it is about how much you can bench press. I don't know how many times I've seen a guy with the physique of a defensive end line up a guy half his size, only to bounce off when he connects. Sure, there is room in the game for big guys who can throw their weight around. But for the most part, players are smart enough to see them coming--and strong enough to protect the puck when they arrive. There are trainers out there who know how to devlop hockey-specific strength--though a trainer can help only if a player follows the program. All too often, I've seen players sign up with the best trainer, but not show up for their workouts and never to reap the benefits."

LOL

"He is also affectionate - he will purr while you hold him in your arms, loves to be petted and cuddles up with you on the couch or sits on your lap. When guests visit, Luongo will entertain and impress them with his friendliness and will choose to sit on an admiring guest's lap. It's hard not to fall in love with this charmer who loves human companionship."

never knew luongo was such a people person

Definitely a few who won't read it and a few more that'll get all bent out of shape over it. Despite the "Slow News Day" tag I included, I'll still get the "OMG just die, already!!!1!!" responses from the ones repeatedly hitting refresh on a webpage somewhere in hopes of having something new to talk about. The offseason is a cruel mistress, LOL.

That cat's pretty bitchin' though, eh?

Far from offended, but I'll admit I'm concerned by the fact that vancitykid wasn't more specific...

Am I supposed to jump THROUGH the window or do I just jump up and down once I find one? Does it need to be open or closed in the event that I have to jump through it? If the window's only on the first floor, does that still count?

So many unanswered questions!! Oh noes!!

Good comment. Something we all should remember. I can sometimes share that dark sense of humour, but you have to know your audience. This is a very PUBLIC forum fellas.

He's kinda got a point man, there's definitely other ways to be funny. I used to make Sandusky jokes online all the time, until a couple of months ago when one of my closest friends shared in confidence, well, what happened in his past. And I felt like an absolute piece of s*** about it for weeks after. You never know what's gonna affect someone, and maybe people who need cruel humor to have a laugh don't really need one anyways.

Just curious what your thought process is. You're sitting at your keyboard staring at the pinned "All Luongo rumours & speculation goes here" thread and decide that your post shouldn't go in there because:

a) Your info is far too important to stick at the end of a pinned thread where it might get burried, and you're so concerned that the rest of us on CDC might miss out on your very important information that you feel it deserves its own thread...moderator's pinned thread be damned...or

B) You're just trolling.

My choice is made. Now all we need to do is wait for the lock!

Glad some people here got the humor, but this thread of mine still fails due to the ones who feel a need to be offended by anything and everything they see on the Internet. FYI, if I'm not getting bent outta shape over vancity telling me to "find a window and jump" then maybe you should take that as a sign that YOU don't need to (over)react to it, either.

For those of you that can't accept such advice and still feel a need to speak out, I have a simple suggestion: Put down the computer and start volunteering for a charity related to whatever subject you find so offensive, rather than just clogging up the boards with your overinflated sense of (self)righteousness. Armchair activists are the last thing our society needs!

EDIT: LOL @ this thread getting moved from the Trades, etc forum to White Noise - should fit right in! I guess now it'll wind up getting locked for sure...

I think he was just trying to get people to open a window and play "Jump" by Van Halen through that now-open window.
