In a continuing series on the trials and tribulations of Canucks goalie, Roberto Luongo, we have one of the strangest goals in recent memory. Former Boston Bruin (our hero’s nemesis team), and current San José Shark (our hero’s most recent nemesis) Joe Thornton shoots one into the Canuck’s zone and the rest is history.
Is this guy snake-bit or what.

I was watching (as Canadians do) an NHL game from Chicago between the Blackhawks and the Winnipeg Jets. During the game, something happened that I had never seen before. No, not the hit, or the glass popping out or the beer being thrown at the opposition player. Believe it or not, a fairly inebriated fan reached in and ripped the helmet off Adam Pardy‘s head (I’ve also seen fans grab equipment before) and, this is the crazy part, put the helmet on. As the announcer says, if you’re going to steal something, don’t wear it. A classic NHL moment that will play on sport shows for years.
A lot of you don’t know hockey, but we Canadians do. Over the past few years there has been a lot of talk about Vancouver Canucks goalie, Roberto Luongo. Personally (even though I love to tweak my my Canuck fan friends about him), I think he is a marvellous, highly skilled goaltender, one that has led Canada to Olympic gold, and will again this winter.

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you’ll know that last Thursday I lost my amazing GoPro camera, after attaching it to 23 helium balloons, and watching in dismay after the wind snapped the rope and it floated high into the sky over county cork. (You can read about all the drama HERE.)
What you might not know is that I was stopping at nothing to get that camera back! I contacted the local radio station, and used the power of social media to get the word out to everyone in the area to keep an eye on the skiesfor a crazy contraption consisting of 23 balloons, a styrofoam mount and a tiny little camera!
On Good Friday I had an email from a girl I sister went to school with, Debbie Deane, saying her husband had found my camera in one of their fields, over 20km…
