I just found out about the coolest campaign ever. Since the NHL allows for fans to vote for the starting line-up in the All-Star game some die-hard fans thought it would be fantastic to run a Write-In Campaign for an everyman worker-bee to be named a starter. Enter Rory Fitzpatrick a journeyman defenseman that has zero points in 26 games this season for the Vancouver Canucks. Rory has been in the league for sometime and is considered by many coaches as a standup defense defenseman.
Naturally this position is rewarded by the media or the fans all that often. This is where VoteForRory.com comes into play. Currently Rory is in 3rd place in the voting! He has been getting crazy media coverage and there are even campaign ads on Youtube (one of the funniest videos on the net right now!!!!) which are available through the site. Check them out.
It is quite crazy to think that this might work. Never before has something like this worked. It all depends on us, as Rory won’t be selected as an at large player by the coaches. Wayne Gretzky has called this campaign a sham, but the write-in campaign is gaining steam. Go here to vote for Rory. Just drag down to his name on the last option for Western Conference Write-In.
Check out some of the sweet photo’s fan AROUND the league have created for the everyman:
Take the 2min and Vote For Rory! I want to see the faces of the NHL brass when this guy is announced as a starter on TV! If this isn’t a reason to vote for him how about this sweet picture from his rookie card!
The Death Pool is going to come down to the wire as Team Shit The Bed is the only team to have selected Sadaam Hussein who is rumored to be getting hung this weekend. If he drops they win a bunch of money on some last minute heroics. Pretty bad ass.
