Last Thursday, the NHL released the names that would be on the 2009 NHL All-Star Ballots. As you might expect, one very important name was left off. One name, that bears more awesomeness than Barack Obama and Quantum of Solace put together.
Of course, I'm talking about JR. Jeremy Roenick.
Regular readers need no introduction and neither do vintage video game addicts. But for the rest of you, which is probably like two people, please take a look at the awesomeness that is JR to get yourself familiar with the man. Around these parts, his awesomeness is unparalleled.
So that's all you need to do. Go out and do your civic duty -- cast a ballot for the All-Star Game. Just remember who the best player and one of the most fan friendly players in the NHL is.
That's all I have to say about that.
I'm not out to start a Vote for Rory or anything. That's the last thing we want to happen -- writing in a Rebel Who Doesn't Play By the Rules such as JR becoming the "cool thing" to do. It would be a mockery of all JR is about. But if you're "with it" and "in the know" I don't even have to tell you to cast a write in vote for JR. You probably were already going to do it because you're that awesome.
To keep tabs on JR during the campaign, we've given him his own Twitter account here at BMR.* Hopefully the world does not implode when he gains millions of followers overnight. But on the bright side, you can keep up with him better, and potentially have a hand in Armageddon. And that's something we can all get behind!
