Video: Sharks Broadcasters Mock Canucks' "Green Men"


The big story after the Sharks-Canucks opening postseason game was not the fact that San Jose played well and won. Instead, the focus was on Sharks’ broadcasters Randy Hahn and Drew Remenda blasting the Canucks’ beloved “Green Men” :

The “Green Men,” as they are affectionally known around the NHL, are two fans dressed in green Spandex suits who sit next to the opponents’ penalty box at Vancouver home games.

Hahn and Remenda called the two men “40-year old virgins,” and wondered if they lived in their mother’s basement. Mockingly, the asked if they collected snow globes or pot holders.

As someone who listens to these two every single broadcast, I can say that this is just what Hahn and Remenda do, keeping things free-flowing and cracking jokes throughout the game.

This is just another example, and honestly, if you’re going to every single Canucks’ game wearing a green Spandex suit, people will make fun of you (about the Spandex suit, not the fact that you’re watching the Canucks).
