Canucks Flasher Makes It Easier to Cheer for Vancouver

Let's face it, Vancouver is not the ideal city to represent Canada in the Stanley Cup finals, but it's all we Canadian hockey fans have left, so the beggars that we are, can't be choosers.

The city's image is that of Canada's Yuppie capital, a town where condos start at $750k and and where the words blue collar and Tim Horton's are dirty..

The infamous Green Men waving their arms at the opposition in skintight suits with their packages bulging, is enough to make real hockey fans cringe, but c'est la vie.
I don't want to use the word 'gay'  disparagingly,  but if ever there was a  word to define their antics...well.

I still choose to cheer for the team reluctantly, but I can say without any hesitation, aside from my beloved Canadiens, I'd rather see the Leafs, the Flames, Senators or Oilers represent our country in the finals before Van City (the worst nickname ever.)

But that all changed with an over-enthusiastic fan who may have single-handedly changed our perception of the city with a well-timed flash of her breasts in front of the Sharks Ben Eager, sitting in the penalty box.
Apparently the young lady was replacing the Green Men (mercifully) and got caught up in the moment.

Here's the video that the CBC inadvertently broadcast. NSFW

Go Canucks Go!


  1. I think I prefer the stance of CTV's Ted Bird. Let us reserve our Canadiana for when it counts, Winter Olympics, World Championship and World Cup (of Hockey) if it ever returns. As NHL transcends US-Canada border, there is no difference for us between Vancouver Canucks or Boston Bruins, except for the quality of the players. Players in each NHL team comes from many places. But of course, one can be fan of whatever team one likes.

    So if as Canadian one likes to see more Canadian NHL team, let us cross our finger that the Thrashers will change their uniform to a Winnipeg one, whatever the new name might be. Also, let us hope that Regis Lebaume and P. K. Peladeau manage to pull miracle and bring the Coyotes to Quebec City.

  2. I share a lot of Troy's sentiments. It's good to see how the dynamics of the NHL structure have made Canadian cities a friendlier place to do business (mostly due to the salary cap, and at this time, a stronger Canadian dollar).

    I'm all for a team coming back to Quebec City, but IF AND ONLY IF it's through private funding, not one cent of federal government money. Considering Conservative fortunes in the recent election, I don't think federal money will be coming soon. If the Quebec governments want to kick in (provincial or municipal), that's another kettle of fish, but no equalization or other sneaky federal money.

  3. Ohhh noooo. What she's doing? It's really funny actually! Green men, strip girl, all very representative of Canadians. Pretty hot :0)

  4. You're an idiot... But it's a free country, so "idiot away".

    & yes I'm from Vancouver.

  5. Bonne journée des Patriotes ! Vive l'abolition de la monarchie !

    Prince William and his new wife will be visiting the Queen's loyal subjects in Quebec this summer.

    "God save our gracious Queen,
    Long live our noble Queen!"

  7. Vancouver is not the ideal city to represent Canada in the Stanley Cup finals ?????????? The World saw what a wonderful city Vancouver was during the Olympics...... a CANADIAN like yourself, cant support his own country?? The titties are convincing you??? That says a lot about your taste. :-)
