Just another day at the office

This is all getting a little ho-hum isn’t it? Roberto Luongo’s fine form, with three straight shutouts and almost 200 minutes of hockey without conceding a goal, almost appears an ordinary state of affairs.

In fact, Luongo’s play is so outstanding (and has been since his arrival in Vancouver) that you almost get the sense it is just business as usual for him. Get dressed. Warm up. Stymie the opposition. Tell the media the win was due to your teammates. Shower. Go home. Repeat tomorrow.

Strangely, he is so good with such regularity that it almost becomes unnecessary to say ‘great save’ or to comment on how spectacular his play is.

I mean, we don’t need to wake up every morning and extol the virtues of the sun. It’s there. It’s always been there (from a human referential perspective). And, it will always be there (or, at least, as long as ‘we’ are ‘there’). No need to wax ecstatically about it.

Likewise, Luongo.

    I trust that the Canucks’ good fortune as of late has at least served as some sort of counterbalance to the, er, points of discussion in your other blog.

    I don’t know if you’re superstitious or not, but I’d be a little wary of comparing his consistency to that of the sun. That certainly rings of the “famous last words” spoken before a freak knee injury throws their fortunes for a loop. But certainly enjoy it while it lasts.
