Green is in!
You, the fans, have spoken.
The Green Men, Force and Sully, will be one of three inaugural inductees into ESPN’s Hall of Fans on September 19th in Bristol, Connecticut.
The ceremony will be emceed by SportsNation’s Charissa Thompson and includes remarks by ESPN president John Skipper.
Three vintage stadium chairs with individual plaques will be placed on the Bristol lawn and will immortalize the names of the inductees; Captain Dee-Fense (Larry H.) of the Baltimore Ravens and Emily of the University of Alabama (specifically softball) round out the winners.
“To be part of the inaugural class is something extra special,” said Adam Forsythe (Sully), told ESPN’s Kristen Hudak.
“There will be Hall of Fame classes beyond this one, but to be inducted on the first go-round is awesome. It’s pretty cool to think the small idea of two idiots in green suits attending a hockey game three years ago would turn into something so big. To be the only Canadian representative and only hockey representative makes it even better.”
Over the 10 day voting period nearly 50,000 votes were cast, many from you, many for the Green Men.
The Green Men will be immortalized, but they represent Vancouver Canucks fans the world over.
As always, thank you for your support.
