San Jose has its own Orange, Teal Men next to box

SAN JOSE --- The San Jose Sharks have their own dudes clad in spandex next to the penalty box --- and they did the Vancouver ‘s two Green Men a few better.

There were five --- three in orange and two in tight-fitting teal, although none appeared to be as acrobatic as the Vancouver crew  --- and they even had their own PR person from a Silicon Valley company that paid for their seats at Game 3 of the Western Conference finals at HP Pavilion on Friday night. The seats cost at least $350 each, so Barracuda Networks --- a Sharks sponsor  --- spent some good money to spoof Vancouver.

“We are just looking to go out there and have some fun,” said Mitch Vacation of Saratoga, Calif. (Yes, that’s the name he gave and here’s appears to be his Facebook page.) “We are here to represent the Sharks and everything that has to do with orange and teal. “

Barracuda Networks was behind the promotion that handed every person who walked into the arena orange t-shirts, although only at best half wore them.

Being sponsored has its advantages. The Green Men said on their Twitter account that they were unable to make Game 2 because “tix are a little too pricey and Nashville put us in debt.” They promised to be back in Game 5.

A certain fan made up for their absence in Game 2 by putting on her own display.

Of course, not everybody was pleased with these five.

“You guys are copycats,” said one Canucks fan in a Ryan Kesler jersey. “Why don’t you do something original?”

 Actually the Green Men were doing their thing in Vancouver long before "Its always Sunny in Philly" had it in one of their episodes. Do some homework. Secondly, okay ya they 'copied' the Blue Man group, but not another sports organization, that's a lil different.

Would everyone relax and enjoy these guys having fun copy cat or not it's great to see and have a laugh as long as it's all in fun. Even Fischer for Nashville laughed when he looked over and saw a cardboard cut out of his wife Carrie Underwood in a Vancouver Jersey by the Green Men. Enjoy the series everyone Smile

Yeah it did come from somewhere else, this whole green men thing came from the TV show "It's Always Sunny in Philedelphia."

As if the Green Men were not inspired by the Blue Man Group.

The NHL like the NFL is a copycat league. Although it's not very original it is funny as hell. Our Canuck chicky that showed her boobs beats all.

Not like Canucks fans 'created' the bodysuit. 

I remember a kid in a red one running around on the field
in Philly at a Phillies game a couple years ago.

And I'm betting he copied it from somewhere else...
