So, the Vancouver Canucks just acquired a restricted free agent by the name of Mike Duco. I know, no idea who he is either. Turns out Duco has a twitter account, or had one. During the playoffs last season, he did what many of us did and, well, chirped about his love affair with Roberto Luongo and the Sisters. Ready?
“sick of watching the sedins dive and lay on the ice,” Duco tweeted on June 6.
“HA…solid night Luongo,” he wrote after Roberto Luongo melted down in Game 6.
Er, awkward? Hell no. AWESOME! Now, he is a member of those very same Vancouver Canucks.
Unfortunately, rather than handle it the way Surly and I would have, which is to punch one of the Sedins, kick Luongo in the nuts and get booted off the team, Duco took the low road and…
“I apologize to all three players involved, everyone knows that they’re three world-class players. I feel like it’s very important to move on from this. I’m looking forward to possibly being teammates with them. And in any situation, I want them to know that I’m the type of player that goes out and plays hard and I’ll have their back no matter what if we’re on the same team.”
Jeez. Grow a pair.
