So what is "Vote for Avery Day"?
Since I started the Avery All Star write-in campaign, I knew it wasn't going to be easy to get the most hated man in hockey into the top three vote getters to earn a bid to the NHL showcase.
And my concerns have come true. Despite the great showing by Rangers fans (almost 100,000 votes for "The Grate One") Avery still trails Steve Stamkos by about 125,000 votes for the third and final spot.
So what I figured is that I would setup a day where Rangers fans would vote for Avery at least 100 times in an attempt to make up this deficit.
Now while it would be great for everyone who visits this blog to do that, I don't think it will be enough. So what I'm asking is besides voting 100+ times for Avery, I need all of you to spread the word on "Vote for Avery Day." Send e-mails, tweets and facebook statuses to all your friends, family and co-workers.
I figured we'll need at least 1,250 people voting 100 times each to cut into that deficit.
You guys have been unbelievable getting out the vote to this point. Now it's time to step it up a notch. As I've said, I didn't start this campaign for a good showing, I want Avery in the All Star Game and really think we can do it.
Also don't forget to vote for Avery today and the rest of the week.
