The Rant: Let’s chill out

By Andrew Singer

What happens when Roberto Luongo gives up five goals tonight?

In a perfect world, the Canucks’ star net minder would put on his suit and go home. In reality, there’s no way Luongo will be able to dust himself off and forget about his long list of failures.

Whatever way he deals with it, hopefully it’s better than how Donnie Moore dealt with failure.

A pitcher for five different MLB teams in the 1970’s and 80’s, Moore is best known for giving up a crucial home run in the 1986 ALCS that prevented the California Angels from going to the World Series. Moore’s career went downhill fast, and in 1989, shortly after being cut by the Kansas City Royals, the pitcher shot his wife, before turning the gun on himself, ending his life.

It took a tragedy like Moore’s suicide to remind everyone that these are just games, no matter how much we want them to be more.

So, lighten up Loouuuuuu.
