Sully From The Green Men Duo Makes ESPN Hall Of Fans

The Green Men Will Retire At The End Of The 2014-15 Season

One of the two in the entertaining duo – otherwise known as the Green Men of Vancouver has made it to ESPN’s Hall of Fans! Sully, the shorter one in the dark green spandex was announced as 1 of 3 who made the cut out of hundred + that qualified. His partner ‘Force’ was also named a finalist but unfortunately didn’t make the cut. However, ESPN should know the two come as a twin deal just like our Sedins..

Here’s what Sully had to say:

In 2009, we attended a Vancouver Canucks game in a pair of one piece green suits. It was supposed to be a one time thing and it turned in to a piece of sports pop culture. We have accumulated a great record throughout our 50+ games beside the visitor’s penalty box. Our goal has always been to distract the opposition while getting our fans pumped. Our efforts have landed us on ESPN countless times, including numerous Top Ten lists, PTI, Around The Horn, First Take and many more. Once our popularity grew in the sports world we were able to raise over $15,000 for various charities. As super fans we have followed our team to Nashville, Phoenix, and Boston. Even the Canucks players have acknowledged our contribution to the team. We feel we are “HallOfFan” worthy because of our impact on fans in sports. Since our inception, fans from around the world have donned the suits. They even attempt handstands from time to time. A trip to the Hall would be the sweet icing on our green spandex cake.
