I just wanted to give a quick thank you to everyone who participated in “Vote for Avery Day” yesterday.
From the overwhelming response I received, I can definitely tell you we made a huge dent in the 125,000 vote deficit.
One thing that actually angered me last night at the Rangers game. During a stoppage, the P.A. announcer asked Ranger fans to make sure they voted for the Rangers three All Star candidates Marian Gaborik, Marc Staal and Henrik Lundqvist. While I have no problem with them pumping up those players, how do they not acknowledge Sean Avery? He has the best chance of any Ranger to get voted into the game and nothing. Hey Rangers, Sean Avery is on your team!!!
Now that I’ve gotten that off my chest, I wanted to remind everyone to keep voting. Just because “Vote for Avery Day” is over doesn’t mean you should stop. We need to keep getting out the vote more than ever.
Again, you guys and gals absolutely rock. And when Avery does get voted into the All Star game we are going to have a huge party.
To vote for Avery you can go to NHL.com or text “Avery” to 81812. Message and data rates may apply for text messages.
