Force on D&C: Canucks fans ‘in for a hostile situation’

The man who goes by the name of Force, half of the Green Men duo, joined the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning as he prepared to head to the airport in Vancouver for his flight to Boston for Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals.

Force, who dresses up in a green spandex bodysuit to cheer on his team and taunt the opposition, said 90 percent of Bostonians treated the Green Men well during their previous visit (watch the video here [1]), but the other 10 percent “made up for it” by antagonizing him and his partner, Sully. He expects a similar reaction Monday night.

Said Force: “I think win or lose, Bruins fans are going to intensify their hatred toward us. I fully expect it. … They definitely made it known we are not welcome for Games 3 and 4, so I can only imagine it’s going to be worse tonight.”

Force and Sully are on a direct flight to Boston with about 50 other fans. Cautioned Force of his fellow Canucks backers: “I hope they are well aware that if they weren’t there for 3 and 4, they’re in for a hostile situation.”

Asked for a prediction on Game 6, Force did not voice any confidence.

“The Canucks are so hit-and-miss on the road and the Bruins have been so dominant in TD Garden,” he said. “To be honest, I think the Canucks will have a hard time winning tonight. … I’m hoping the Canucks pull it out, but it’s going to be tough.”
