Vancouver's Green Men Are Back, Taunting Predators' Shea Weber With Naked Ryan Kesler (Video)

Last night in Vancouver, the Canucks renewed their rivalry with the visiting Nashville Predators. Predators defenseman (and captain) Shea Weber and Canucks forward Ryan Kelser have been known to have their battles out on the ice.

Some Canucks fans made a note of this for future reference, most especially the "Green Men". So, when Shea Weber got a holding penalty in the first period and was sent to the penalty box, the Green Men were waiting.

Making their season debut, the Green Men came especially prepared to taunt Shea Weber with a cutout of the naked Ryan Kesler photo from ESPN The Magazine's 2011 Body Issue.  Naturally, they couldn't resist the chance to use Kesler's pose themselves for the cameras.

Unfortunately, Force and Sully's taunting may have backfired, however, as Weber scored a goal later in the first period, and the Predators won the game 6-5.
