Sharks commentator's go on a tangent about green men. Likely virgins, and rain globe owners.

At Monday's Sharks vs. Canucks NHL Playoffs game, hockey was being played, as per usual, when something else caught the announcers eye: two men in green suits. And let me tell you: the announcers eyes were CAUGHT.

Per Greg Wyshynski of Yahoo's Puck Daddy, the Green Men are regulars at Canucks games, and they spend most of their time tormenting opponents in the penalty box.

The two commentators launched into detailed and fanciful dressings-down of these guys, starting with:

The speculation didn't end there. It got mean.

And then it just got weird.

Like... why snowglobes? What the hell even is a rainglobe?

Heed this tale next time you think about putting on a green bodysuit.

These guys have their hate on for the green men.

I thought it was kind of funny, I bet they actually get laid a ton though.

I have no problem with the green men. They started a trend, other's have copied them with orange men and pink lady or whatever. I have no problems with it. the 40 year old virgin was damn funny though.

BTW, they are 2 elite hockey players. Of course not professional hockey players but they play recreation hockey at a very high level.

Hahaha.

Is that color guy Drew Remenda? If it is, I remember him doing a few CBC games some years ago and he was terrible.

Don't be scared San Jose, these are just a couple of those rare and elusive "fans" you've heard about. We have a lot of them up here in Canada.

Virgins? Lol

It would be funny if they got it on in the intermission, with the suit still mostly on

I live in Cali - man the NBC feed was horrible. Those two announcers were probably the worst I've heard since I moved here. It was awful.

I love these guys and their creativity.. they keep bringing something new to every game. I hate people who bash creativity because they're too scared to try something new themselves.... and I hate even more the people who bash anything because it's for the opposite team.

I like how they bring up gamers as if it's a low life sad self esteem type.. Gaming is starting to become accepted in today's society and if their so called "upper class job" is more civil and higher than what the Green Men do for a living, then it just shows how idiotic they are. Such pretentious butthurt commentators.

I was watching the SJ feed last night, their comments were slightly humorous but it was funny how they got stuck on this. Just kept going on about it. I didn't have too much problem with their game calling (albeit it wasn't fantastic). These guys just reminded me of a SJ-version of Shorty and Garrett with less talent and slightly more homerish-leanings.

Why can't people dress up and have fun at a game that cost $500 to go to. The green men are great.

American hockey announcers are generally homers and highly unprofessional. Not surprised they said that. Hopefully Canucks go deep so these guys can continue to torment these idiots and all those scared-of-creativity people out there.

If they can afford those seats in that many playoff games, I think they are doing just fine.

Overall, though, I sometimes find them funny but not really caring about them. They get fans going and add some quirkiness to our stadium. Unless you are worried they are personally reflecting poorly on you, I wouldn't worry about it.
