11 Best Tweets from Strombone1, Otherwise Known as Roberto Luongo

Roberto Luongo is a star on the ice and in the Twitterverse.

Last May, I posted an article spotlighting some of the more interesting Twitter accounts associated with the Vancouver Canucks.

I included this information about Roberto Luongo and the account @strombone1. At the time, it wasn't certain that the account was actually maintained by Luongo, but evidence was mounting. Way back in February 2012, Harrison Mooney of the Vancouver Sun's Pass It to Bulis sports blog pointed out that Strombone was the same handle that Luongo had been using for online poker for the past five years.

During a February 2013 appearance on Hockey Night in Canada's After Hours, Luongo stopped being coy and talked about the account in the first person. Once again, Harrison Mooney has all the details, including video of the After Hours appearance.

This makes it certain: The account is his, and it's hilarious.

Luongo hasn't slowed down with the tweets since getting back to work. He has engaged in crazy discussions with everyone from baseball's Jose Canseco to Wrestling's Iron Sheik to the GM who traded him to Vancouver, Mike Keenan.

Here are 11 of the best hockey-related tweets from @strombone1 since the NHL lockout ended in January.
