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'm indifferent. It doesn't bother me, and sometimes they come up with fun stuff. I don't think I'd spend a minute of my day talking about how they're virgins and gamers though. Especially on live TV, when there's a playoff game going on.

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.

He's terrible. Takes it too personally sometimes, even as a color guy for his sharks. He goes way overboard.

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.

They were slightly amusing in 2011, now they are just played out. I understand they ae just grasping to their 5 minutes of fame and trying to squeeze all te money out of it they can, which I have complete respect for. But when they go I certainly won't miss them, till then make ur money boys

What do you mean "accepted" in today's society?
It's #1 in the entertainment industry, and has been for a while. Infact, I'd say it's more unusual when someone doesn't play video games at all, than to find someone who does.
They're just old, and clueless.

To add insult to injury to last night's game, not only did I have to watch the Canucks get their butts kicked, but I had to listen to Sharks announcers as the Canadian stations were blacked out here. What a bunch of homers! They rank right up there with Detroit and Calgary announcers. :sick: :mad:

This situation was just discussed on Around the Horn on ESPN. Asked whether it was fair or foul to criticize the Green Men - Bill Plaschke said foul due to originality, Kevin Blackistone said fair due to lack of originality.

The Green Men must sacrifice a lot. Can they even see out of those suits ... can you imagine watching the whole game with a green tint ... like a bad TV ... how terrible!
