Dreaming of McSharpy

I became a Chicago Blackhawks fan today.  I confess my passion is only skin deep.  While we have more Blackhawk fans here at Sharpie HQ than you can shake a stick at (Sharpie is based outside of Chicago – Hawks are hometown heroes!) I just recently found my own reason to believe.  And it has nothing to do with scoreboards or trophies or board checks.  His name is Patrick Sharp.  Sharpy:

Forget that his name lines up nicely with Sharpie, the marker I blog and Tweet and Facebook about all day.  Forget that I found this doctored photo of him tearing up the ice with a giant Sharpie marker in hand. Forget his amazing hockey stats, his smooth moves, his already huge numbers of adoring fans.  Today I am a Blackhawks fan for one reason and one reason only: 

Sharp Shooter

 It was for much the same reason that I became a Kennedy fan: 

Sharp Dresser

While I’ll watch the games, note the score, yell at the refs and occasionally visit concessions, mostly I just want to watch Patrick Sharp. I know I am not alone…which is why I know you won’t want to miss this…

SHARPY-SHARPIE NIGHT SATURDAY FEBRUARY 13

Diehard or fareweather, Blackhawks fans won’t want to miss this.  It’s Sharpy-Sharpie night at the United Center where the first 20,000 fans will receive a personalized Patrick Sharp Blackhawk Sharpie.  Be sure to grab tickets to the  game against the Atlanta Thrashers (Atlanta also home to Sharpie’s parent company, Newell Rubbermaid).  

Here’s a sneak peek of what awaits 20,000 lucky fans:

I confess I have some connections over here at Sharpie.  I just might be able to get my hands on one of these beauties.  It will serve as my official indoctrination into the Chicago Blackhawks fan club.  I know I’ve got miles of ice to go before they’ll let me in.  In the meantime, I’ve got my eye on the prize, and he’s lookin’ sharp.
