Who is this guy?

I'm sure you've seen him in the crowd at every Team Canada game. He was there for every game during the World Juniors, & I've seen him on TV at every Men's Team Canada game during the Olympics. Then I saw him tonight at the Women's Canada/Finland game. He sits in the exact same seat every game, behind the net.

He wears a Team Canada jersey, with a Canadian flag as a cape, a goal light on top of his hockey helmet & usually holds a sign that says "Canada is HOCKEY" or something else.

Anybody know what his story is & how he's at every single game?

Haha when you describe him, it kinda sounds like how a Canadian would be pictured in the Simpsons or something like that.

Anyway, the guy sounds awesome

Yeah, I've seen him at Canucks games too. What I hated though was the guy who gets paid to amp up the crowd and start chants. It's not the red light helmet guy, just some chubby older dude who wears like 10 shirts and takes one off and swings it around each time the camera is on him. He was running up and down the steps at the Germany-Belarus game doing this the whole night. It was amazing how many shirts he had on.

Bubbles long distance cousin?

Seriously though...me thinks he may be one of these "professional fans" i.e. he's collecting a cheque.

I saw him handing out a ton of flags to all the people in his section during one of the pre-games I saw the other day.

Just a thought.

Who's the moron that actually thought Canada NEEDED professional fans?

Talk about wasted money, but there's been a lot of that lately. VANOC strikes again!

He is the stereotypical goofy looking Canadian hockey nerd. Even has the thick frames like the Hanson brothers. I'd bet he loves to ice fish. If he's getting paid for that then he's got the second best job in the world. The best job of course would be to play in those games he attends...

I read the title, and for some reason, I knew EXACTLY who you were talking about.
