To keep the "tradition" going strong... Utica is proud to present: our Green Man. He is 1 of 4 to proudly stand behind our Comets. Please note the "new colors" on the inside of "our barn".

One of four? There are four green men? Or there are four "characters" in your rink, the green man being one of them?

We have the Green Men here in Utica. 4 individual "characters" portraying this 'icon". We actually had a sign up sheet and there is now a waiting list...from what I understand.

The Utica Green Man was hilarious at the preseason game taunting the opposing team in the penalty box.

Awesome, glad to see we're growing the brand into something that unites both teams.

Hilarious. I can see Glen Healy's head exploding right about now.

Kassian.... Taylor Pyatt 3.0

Lies. He's more of a Steve Bernier. Hopefully his talent level goes up so he can become like a Taylor Pyatt.

First of all, yes, this is the official Utica Green Man. Now that that's out of the way, allow me to clear some things up. 1. There are not 4 Green Men and as far as I knew, never was. 2. I never heard of any waiting list, or anything remotely close to that and there was certainly never a sign up sheet. This is something I personally decided to do in honor of the guys up in Vancouver and it just so happened there was another guy that wanted to join me when the season started to complete the pair. I'm not tryin to put anyone down here, that's not what I'm about. I'm just trying to clear up some misunderstandings. If anyone has any questions, please ask away! I couldn't be prouder to be doing what I do at the games and supporting the Comets and greater Canucks organization!

that's a lot better, and not as weird as originally stated. do you have a character name (ours are Force and Sully)

No, not yet. My plan was to wait a few games and then put it out to the fans for suggestions once they see what I've got. I had heard someone was posting different stories about me on the Canucks website somewhere and they said they'd put the idea for a name out there but I haven't seen it yet.

We need to get the guys running the cameras and video boards to get footage of you when the opposition take penalties. It's hard to see you from our seats.

Other Utica fan here..sorry for the confusion, but I "heard" at the "Aud" that there were 4 of you guys and there was a waiting list. That will teach me to go to the source first. I'll post that suggestion on the Comets webpage. We need to get you on camera at the Aud.

I'm all for it, but whether I'm on the camera or not, it's just the most fun I've had in my life when those guys go in the box. Their reactions are priceless and I can't wait for you guys to see what I've got planned for upcoming games.

for some reason I think it would be great if you were to go by "Mac". Sully, Force and Mac, it just sorta rolls off your tongue.

I've been trying to think of something locally related, but have been coming up blank. I do like the Mac suggestion though. I'll see what else I get, but I'd say that's a solid fallback.

That's actually an awesome gimmick. Be the Green Man and heckle the penalty box for a night!

Good idea.
