Tires seem to play an unusually large role in the public life of Roberto Luongo.
During the 2011 Stanley Cup final, the Vancouver Canucks goalie famously said of Boston Bruins counterpart Tim Thomas that “I’ve been pumping his tires ever since the series started” in an exchange that has become a bit of a running joke among hockey fans.
On Tuesday afternoon, Luongo tweeted from his @strombone1 account that the tires had been stolen from his SUV, apparently parked at his home in Florida. He provided his more than 173,000 Twitter followers with visual evidence of his misfortune. (Photo via @strombone1/Twitter)
