Remember him? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
You're thinking of Andrew Castell, this guy:



And what's really sad is that according to this article, written during the 2011 finals, he stopped being a fan of the team during the Keenan era and never came back.

That's actually kind of sad.

Probably not... I think he just went to a game a couple of years ago.

Do you remember the 3 guys that had a car painted Canucks colours and how they drove to all the playoff games in '94? I'm searching with the wrong terms because I can't seem to find anything. There was also a story done on them in '11.

I knew somebody who was friends with them. Could probably come up with a name with a bit of searching.

Who was that guy that wore a Bertuzzi shirt under his MLB Uniform when he won the World Series?

edit: wait - why is Nate Robinson wearing a Whalers hat as well?
Maybe it meshed well with the blue/green Canucks colourway? I dunno.

I can verify Sam Bradford...
It was Don Cherry who got him into hockey...
Ironically.

After the 94 season...
Bradford got a copy of Don Cherry's Rock'em Sock'em Hockey.
Since the Canucks made it all the way to the finals...
They were featured prominently in that one...
And he was hooked.
His favorite player is Bure...

After he is drafted by the Rams...
He said that he will cheer for the Blues from then on...
But I am pretty sure he still likes the Canucks.

Good job on the list.
I didn't know they were even fans.

One name you guys missed is...
The 2011 Miss USA...
Alyssa Campanella.
The first game she ever saw featured the Canucks...
And she loved the skill level of the team...
So she became a fan of the team.
I think she will also give the cutest/ hottest fan a run for the title.


Edit:
Never mind.
Someone got her.
Surprised she is not being talked about more.

I think I vaguely remember during our playoff run seeing some emma watson photoshop'd into canucks pics being floated around. I might be getting mixed up though.

She may not be initially...
As I was a little skeptical...
But I think she is growing into one.

Almost every episode of How I Met Your Mother this season...
Features her in Canucks gear.

Exactly the dude. Thanks.

Funny that he survived the 15 year losing streak, but couldn't make it through a couple of Keenan years. The Keenan years were pretty deplorable, though.

Here's a gallary of maybe/ maybe not Canucks fans...
Or...
People who sports Canucks gear:

A rioter in Africa


Susan Jacks...
Who I don't know anything about.


Keith Urban...
Probably after the green men...


Conan O'Brien...
Who thought the Shane O'Brien shirt was made for him...


Edge...


Akon...


Lil Wayne...


Dana White...


LeAnn Rhimes...


Young Jeezy...


Jaden Smith...

That's all I got.

Just one more:

Zac Efron...
Even though he is not sporting any gears...
The expression on the kid's face next to him is just priceless.

The little kid kind of looks like Bieksa... The resemblance is uncanny.

And back on topic:

Owen Wilson
Isaiah Mustafa (Old Spice guy)
Will Sasso
Jason Reitman
Captain Kirk (the original)
The two dudes from the show Supernatural
Joshua Jackson
Jason Priestley
Bryan Adams (at least he used to be)

She said Vancouver was her favourite team at the NHL awards in 2011 (Kesler her favourite player).

Jessica Lowndes from 90210 (yeah, no one knows her)

To be fair, just because they're sporting Canucks gear doesn't mean they're actually fans.. I know for a fact that Edge is a Toronto Maple Leaf fan growing up in Montreal...



and Cobie Smulders was born and raised in Vancouver and she is a Canucks fan. She even explicitly said that she's happy that the Canucks are getting more and more air time on Season 8 of HIMYM before it actually aired
