Vancouver Green Men called snow globe collecting virgins by Sharks announcers (Video)

The Green Men are a staple at Vancouver Canucks games, mocking opponents in the penalty box with their unique brand of prop comedy. But not everyone’s a fan, apparently.

During Game 1 of the Western Conference quarterfinals on Wednesday night, the Green Men taunted San Jose Sharks defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic with some kind of fishing-inspired routine. CSN Bay Area announcers Drew Remenda and Randy Hahn responded with their own snark:

That’s Remenda calling the Green Men “40-year-old virgins” before opining that they must live in their mom’s basement, thus sullying the good name of bloggers around North America.

We would be interested in seeing their potholder and/or “rain globe” collections, however.

Score one for the Sharks announcers. We look forward to seeing how the Green Men answer back. And by that we mean, how many snow globes can one strategically place inside a green bodysuit?
