VANCOUVER, June 3, 2011 /CNW/ - The Green Men, the two super fans known as Force and Sully who root for the Vancouver
Canucks, aim to spice up Hockey Night in Canada's upcoming broadcast
with their antics. Today at a fan rally in downtown Vancouver, the
Green Men announced they will be making the trip to Boston to watch
their beloved Canucks play the Boston Bruins for Games Three and Four
of the Stanley Cup finals - thanks to Travelzoo Inc. (NASDAQ: TZOO), a global Internet media company.
"In Vancouver and across Canada this spring the Canucks are the big
story," says Sully. "We're going to help make Vancouver's hockey story
a little bigger in Boston next week. Our goal is to get some rings on
the Canucks' fingers and we're not going to sleep until that happens."
The Green Men have caught the nation's attention for their fun antics at
Canucks games and have even spawned a whole group of imitators.
"I don't think we'll be honoured with a Key to the City, but we're
thrilled to be traveling to Boston for both games and look forward to
visiting - as only Green Men can," says Force. "Lots of people have
offered us money but we can't justify taking any other fan's hard
earned money. However, when Travelzoo asked us if we were interested in
bringing the Green to Beantown, we were more than stoked."
"As well as being deal experts, the team at Travelzoo Canada are huge
Canucks fans. So when we heard that The Green Men might need help
getting to the final, we just had to help out and find a deal that
would get them there to support Canada's team," said Lara Barlow,
Country Manager for Travelzoo Canada. "Hockey and sports fans
everywhere love to travel and support their teams abroad. So, it's a
great fit for our brand."
In honour of the Vancouver Green Men, Travelzoo Canada will be giving
out a phenomenal trip for two to anyone who is a member or signs up to
