Call it Karma, a higher power, or whatever you want, but clearly there is a God…and he is a sports fan. The NHL and NBA Finals proved this beyond a doubt. Two teams who cried, flopped, took cheap shots, and were led by fraudulent superstars made it all the way the championship series before God stepped in and said enough is enough. The Universe wouldn’t allow teams like the Miami Heat and the Vancouver Canucks to win a championship. There were times these series where I thought I was watching the sequels to “Angels in the Outfield”. Dirk’s improbable shots going in. Thomas’s improbable saves. It was amazing. The Bruins and the Mavericks saved America.
These Finals showed the world two “superstars” who have no class and no character. Lebron James and Roberto Luongo. So similar in so many ways. Epic failures define their careers. Former captains who just completely and utterly failed their teams, their cities, and themselves on the biggest stages possible. They are basically the same person. They are…LuBrongo. I’d love Lubrongo to become like an urban dictionary definition of an epic failure.
