Early in the first period of Wednesday's Stanley Cup playoff game, Vancouver Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo was jostled in a scrum, fell back into his net and seemed to say something to the officials.
It was an unremarkable scene, the kind you see 100 times over the course of a playoff contest and, to the untrained eye, deserved no further commentary. But, in the Twitterverse, one professional observer took it all in and, speaking on behalf of the entire country, immediately passed judgment on Luongo and the Canucks.
"And now Luongo joins the early playoff fakery," tweeted Sportsnet's Damien Cox. "Same ol' Canucks. Divers and fakers. Why rest of country hates 'em."
