For the 100th post on puckingopinion.com I wanted to do an interview, and The Vancouver Canucks Green Men made that happen. Thanks again fellas. This is a Pucking Opinion first, and hopefully not the last.
The Green Men have shot from average fan to fan stardom over the past few years with their entertaining in-game antics, trips out in public and, of course, the suits. They have also raised over $15,000 for charities since donning the green suits.
They are up for induction into ESPN's Hall of Fans, and you can vote by going here:

Here's the Qs & As
[PuckingOpinion] What made you decide to wear them?
[PuckingOpinion] Are they beer resistant?
[Green Men] Unfortunately, it seems to be the major flaw in the suit. We have tried to drink beer, but it leaves a big wet, messy looking mark, that results in us feeling like we're being waterboarded. We have tried everything to fix the problem though. At one point we even ran tubing from a camelback backpack into the suit, but it leaked. So... we've accepted the fact that we have to wait till after the game to drink.
[PuckingOpinion] Who is harder on you for the suits, Canucks fans or Opponent fans?
[PuckingOpinion] What do you think of being up for entry into ESPN’s Fan Hall of Fame?
[PuckingOpinion] What’s it been like to go from average fan to Fan Stardom?
[PuckingOpinion] How many autographs do you sign at the games?
[PuckingOpinion] How many pictures do you pose for each game?
[PuckingOpinion] Have any opposing players said anything to you before, If so what’s the worst?
[PuckingOpinion] What do you think of another lockout and will the Green Men do if there is one?
There it is. The Green Men Interview. I hope you enjoyed it, and thanks again to the Green Men!
