article imageLuongo traded - Massimo Luongo, that is, and soccer, not hockey

By Marcus Hondro     Jul 23, 2012 in Sports
There are a great many hockey fans in Canada and the U.S. trolling the internet each day for news of Luongo, Roberto Luongo that is, an NHL goalie with the Vancouver Canucks, for now. On Monday the sports world saw a Luongo switch teams.
But the newly-traded Luongo is a soccer player. Massimo Luongo is 19 and he moved from the Tottenham Hotspurs to Ipswich Town F.C. in a season-long loan. Ipswich is part of England's Football League Championship, their second top league, under the Barclay's Premier League.

So no Luongo moving to the Florida Panthers, Toronto Maple Leafs or Chicago Blackhawks, but instead a young midfielder from Sydney, Australia heading off to play for a club that hasn't been up in the Premier League since being relegated after 2001-02 and hopes to finish top two this season, or win the playoffs, and move back up. Their 2012-13 campaign starts in August.
Meanwhile the 33-year-old Canadian hockey goaltender, Roberto Luongo, is back home in Florida after partaking in the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. Of the 6,598 poker players partaking, Luongo lasted to day 4 and wound up in 634th place, winning $19,777.
And like all those fans trolling the internet, as Massimo Luongo moves his belongings to Ipswich Town, Roberto Luongo awaits the deal that tells him where he'll be moving next season.
