It hadn't been 24 hours so I figured it hadn't been reset yet.
However, throughout the day I had received tweets and e-mails from other fans trying to vote for Girardi stating the same thing. So I went back and checked the ballot and there it was...
Give your favorite players the chance to play in the 2012 Tim Hortons NHL® All-Star Game in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada by submitting a ballot.
(Up to 30 times on each platform: below, on web-enabled mobile devices, and via SMS text).
Up to 30 times on each platform. Not 30 times on each platform per day, just 30 times on each platform. So basically if you've done your 30 write-ins for Girardi on the on-line ballot and through text message you are done.
Well that's not good.
How are we supposed to stuff the ballot? LOL
So now our job is going to be that much more difficult as instead of making sure we vote everyday, we have to make sure everyone we know votes their 60 times.
While how we get there has changed the goal remains the same. Get Girardi in the All Star game.
So I ask everyone at least once a day tweet, Facebook, e-mail or call every friend, co-worker and family member to remind them to vote.
You can vote for Girardi through the online ballot or texting Girardi to the shortcode 81812 (Message and data rates may apply).
We also picked up two big plugs yesterday from ProHockeyTalk and New York Magazine.
@KevinDeLury I have been able to vote every day 30x with out fail via text.
Whatever, why are they even asking the fans? It's clear who the NHL wants playing in this game. Reason 5,367 why I don't give a shit about the total sham that is the NHL All Star Game.
Just register a new username every day! While it is a pain to have to sign up for a new email every day and then register on NHL.com every day it is still worth it to get Girardi in as an All Star!
@Gary_KC2NPU Not sure why that is. Everyone else is saying they can't.
I've voted for the second day with my work email. Tomorrow ill vote using my third email and then after that it is off to yahoo to create more email addresses.
@ZachJohnson That really is the only way around it at this point.
@KevinDeLury I get the confirmation text msg. that said successful = 30 failed = 0.
Just keep texting!
Heck if we really wanted to push it we could vote on different emails all day. Though I have a feeling the NHL would catch on to that at some point.
