The Green Men Mock The Nashville Predators (Video)
The green man costume is slowly starting to seep into the national sports consciousness. This odd green spandex outfit that covers a persons whole body and head is extremely creepy while being hilarious at the same time. It was made famous by the show “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”, in which one of the characters dresses up in it to support the Philadelphia Eagles. Since then people in this costume have been popping up at sports events across the country. Last night’s Predators-Canucks game is the most recent example.
After Dave Scatchard was penalized for goalie interference, he made his way over to the penalty box. Unbeknownst to Dave, two fans dressed in green man outfits were waiting for him. After he sat down they started dancing around like idiots trying to mess with Scatchard. As the announcers point out, its unclear what the green man symbolizes, but based on this video we can take a guess. It symbolizes the idiocy and insanity of the American sports fan.
I for one love the green man outfits. Something about the crazy get up cracks me up every time I see it. These two morons dancing around in the costumes made me laugh especially hard. I doubt it had any real effect on Scatchard or anything in the game, but the comedic value is through the roof.
