Twitter is especially huge for NHL players these days but one Twitter user in particular has captured everyone’s attention. A user that goes by @strombone1 has many in Vancouver believing he’s actually Roberto Luongo. After all, why would all the Canucks players on Twitter follow this one random dude whose avatar shows a guy with his head in a urinal?

Jason Botchford of the Vancouver Province says it’s Luongo and blog Pass It To Bulis assembled the evidence (check the bottom of the post). Now Harrison Mooney of PITB shares his Twitter interview with the guy who may or may not be Luongo and it’s today’s link that you absolutely must click.

I’ll say this: If it is Luongo on the other side of the urinal avatar, there’s a whole lot of personality we haven’t been privy to there. Let it shine, Lu.

    I think this was confirmed (to be Bobby Lu) when official Canucks twitter tweeted him congratulating something.

      There was also a time when the Vancouver Hospital Twitter account thanked “Roberto Luongo (@stombone1)” for some kind of charity work.

      This added even more fuel to the speculation that Strombone1 is Luo.

    It was confirmed months ago that this is in fact Bobby Lu. His poker handle online is strombone1 also if you look at who he follows on twitter he is following one of his brothers, who else would follow Roberto’s brother lol.
    This article is also right, he is one FUNNY personality on twitter, someone compared him to BizNasty and Lu tweeted back that he is the gloves of a fourth liner compared to Sidney in return to the tweet. Great guy even after the abuse he takes. Good on ya Bobby Lu!!!!
