All I Want for Christmas Is Avery in the All Star Game

voteforaveryLess than two weeks until All Star Game voting ends and Sean Avery’s got a 110,000 vote hole to dig out of.

I know this lead seems insurmountable, but alas it seems as though my readers have found a way to keep those text messages coming. If you own an Android phone you’ll want to click here and read the comments section.

Speaking of text messages, the NHL reports that Avery has now received the most text message votes of any NHL player. Unreal folks, unreal.

For the rest of us without Droids, it seems as though it’s going to take about 400 of us voting 250 times a day to make up the deficit. Not that out of the question. Especially if all of you are reaching out to everyone you know through Twitter, Facebook and e-mail.

One thing I didn’t realize until reader JB_MD broke down the numbers is that only Sidney Crosby received more votes for a foward than Avery last week. Again, amazing job everyone.

I mentioned this yesterday, we can really take advantage of the Christmas weekend as voting is sure to be way down. As long as we keep voting, Avery is sure to make a big comeback.

Finally, @kevinbaumer wrote an amazing piece on the Avery write-in campaign at Business Insider.
