Burrard Roofing sits down with Sully

 

 

Well as it has been well documented over the years, Burrard Roofing and Drainage Inc own the seats next to the visitor’s penalty box in Rogers Arena. That much we know. How are they involved with The Green Men though? Was it just a coincidence or were Force and Sully once an integral part of the company?

The answer to these questions and many more are answered in Ryan “Sully” Sullivan’s Behind The Green – Part One.

Sully was generous enough to answer a few of our questions, here’s the interview…

Burrard Roofing: Sully how have the past few weeks been for you?

Ryan “Sully” Sullivan: These past few weeks have been absolutely insane! I haven’t had a minute to catch my breathe and let this all sink in but it’s been very exciting. Every day something new is happening. Whether it’s a new signing or another stop on the press circuit. I’ve had a lot of fun.

Burrard Roofing: What has been the most fun part so far since the book was released?

Ryan “Sully” Sullivan: It’s been extremely tough launching, promoting and selling books. I’m a first time author and it’s been a giant learning curve but one that I’ve really enjoyed. I’d have to say the funnest part has been the press circuit. I love the signings and I love meeting the fans but the circuit has been a lot of fun. I’ve really enjoyed the in-studio interviews the most. Team 1410, Rock 101, The Peak, Global TV, The Rush etc. They’ve been a ton of fun and I love just letting loose on-air and keeping it random.

Burrard Roofing: You don’t like the phone interviews?

Ryan “Sully” Sullivan: I do but my last interview with the Team 1040 was interesting. I had a small grease fire in my kitchen for the first two or three minutes of it. I tried to let it figure itself out but then right in the middle of one my answers the flames got a little bigger so I had to go into crisis mode. I’ve heard nobody could really tell though, so that’s a plus!

Burrard Roofing: Are there any more stops on the press circuit?

Ryan “Sully” Sullivan: I have a big article coming out in The Province in a few days. Then I’ve got a few more stops planned before the big one in late January. I can’t say what it is just yet but if there’s no hockey games by then, this interview will be the biggest highlight of the year for me hands down. It’s going to be epic!

Burrard Roofing: So how is Burrard involved in all of this?

Ryan “Sully” Sullivan: Well Burrard has played obviously a very integral role in our entire tenure. Those seats by the box are theirs and they’ve been very kind to help us out over the years. We do have strong ties to the company and we’ve done a lot of work with them in the past. As for the direct tie though, there is a chapter in the book called “The Tickets”, so I’m afraid you’ll have to pick up the book to find out more.

Burrard Roofing: Where can people find the book and will there be any Boxing Week deals?

Ryan “Sully” Sullivan: You can still find it in a few stores around the Lower Mainland but it’s available 24/7 at BehindTheGreenBook.com. You can also find it’s Kindle and Kobo e-versions on the site as well. As for the deals, on Boxing Day, we had the book going for 50% off. On the 27th, it was 40% off. Now we’ve decided to leave it at 30% off permanently. Though, if you’re interested, you can still get the book for 50% off with our Sher-Wood Hockey holiday promotion.
