So Money He Doesn’t Even Know It: Vince Vaughn Taunts Roberto Luongo

Sure to set the interwebs ablaze today is this photo snapped by Brian Cassella of the Chicago Tribune showing Fred Claus star Vince Vaughn gleefully taunting Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo after he was pulled during the second period of the Chicago Blackhawk’s do-or-die 7-2 win. Since their are a multitude of references available given Mr. Vaughn’s considerable -yet somewhat underwhelming, when you think about it – filmography, let’s just do a bullet point list and get some of them out of the way:

  • “Come on, Roberto. It’s time to put your mouth where our balls are.”
  • “Too bad Hallmark doesn’t make a “Sorry your team got killed by two tons of bad history” card.”
  • “Earmuffs.”
  • “Don’t beat yourself up over this, Roberto. It’s not your fault. Dammit, the Canucks are chokers. That’s what chokers do. They choke.”
  • “Now, see that? That’s the kind of winning attitude that’s gonna take this enterprise straight to the top.”
  • “Today we spell “redemption”… P-A-T” (for Patrick Sharp, two goals)
  • “We all go a little mad sometimes.”

Yeah, the last one? Gus Van Sant’s remake of Psycho starring Vaughn. Remember that debacle of a trainwreck? An apt comparison to Vancouver’s performance last night, I would say.
