The Sean Avery All Star write-in campaign has received a lot of publicity lately (including this latest piece at Puck Daddy).
And while I appreciate the kudos we're getting for Avery doing so well, the one thing that really irks me is when they also add that Avery has no chance. To that I say bring it on!!!!
I didn't start this thing to have a "good showing". I literally want Avery in the All Star game and I truly believe it is going to happen.
Avery's vote total has increased significantly every week and since it was announced that he's now in the Top 20 in forward balloting I have received a tremendous amount of e-mail and tweets from fans saying they hadn't voted for Avery yet but were now on board.
Plus, I'm planning on my ace in the hole "Vote for Avery Day" on December 16th, when I'll be asking everyone to vote for Avery 100 times, to make a real dent in the 130,000 vote deficit we're looking at.
So keep up the great work. Continue to vote and maybe even more importantly continue to spread the word to as many people as possible.
To vote for Avery go to NHL.com or text "Sean Avery" to 81812.
