Vote! Please, Vote.

Calling all hockey fans, internet junkies, and persons who wish to get in good with us here at Steingruebl World Enterprises!

The NHL All-Star game is coming up. For those of you who are not sports fans and don't know how these all-star things work, fans vote for who they want to see play. Our beloved Sharks are eating up the competition on the ice. But not online. The good people of Chicago clearly have much more time to kill on the intertubes than we do here in Silicon Valley. Probably something to do with the weather.

What I'm trying to say, is please, pretty please go vote! You can vote until your fingers fall off-the more the better. A little extra time on your hands? Vote for some Sharks. If you have no idea who they are, never fear. There's a little Sharks logo next to the names of the players you want. But, if you'd like a roster, here it is!

Forwards:
Marleau, Patrick
Thornton, Joe
Write in-Devin Setoguchi

Defensemen:
Blake, Rob
Boyle, Dan

Goalie
Nabokov, Evgeni

Oh please, please, please help send our Sharks to the All-Star game.

If my urgent pleas don't convince you to click like a fiend, I submit the following for your enjoyment:



And, even if that still doesn't convince you, don't forget to watch the Winter Classic on New Year's Day at Wrigley Field!

HOCKEY!!! Always in good taste.

I love the video. I will vote. But, maybe not for Sharks.

Hi SWE: Just wanted to let you know I'm so happy the book worked for you. Sometimes you need a little encouragement to do something hard (like hold your ground) and that book helped me a lot.

Thanks also for reading my blog- people like you make me feel good and, more importantly, make me think I'm not doing this for nothing. :0)

Best,
Roxanne

But the link does not work! I truly tried to vote even though I know absolutely nothing about hockey and care even less. (I know, I could cut and paste but that seems so much like work.) Except how does sunny California get ice hockey? It makes no sense. I bet you don't even throw octopi on the ice. (See I do know that important part of hockey as played here in the frigid North Country (north even to parts--very few parts--of Canada).

Thanks, folks!

And, I've fixed the link so feel free to click away and vote. ;)

OK, I voted. It was fun, especially for those in the other conference for whom I had no instruction. I got to pick who would have the most trouble pronouncing their names after their teeth are all knocked out or those who sounded nice. I did not take time to look at anything but the name so that is not very scientific. Thanks for the entertainment.

I voted in the Western Conf. but couldn't figure out how to vote in the East yet. My votes are as follows: the two defense men from the sharks because defensemem need love too, Two forwards from the Oilers because I love the Oilers best and wrote in Stetoguchi because of the name & the look, Naby because there was no Oiler on the List and their goalie sucks.
