I get many ridiculous (and appreciated) emails. Sometimes, though, they are just asking to be shared, like the one I received today from reader Brett. Him and his fiancée, Talia, want Scott Hartnell to come to their wedding… really. badly.
So badly, in fact, Brett has taken to tweeting (I call this stalking) Scott on a daily basis.
But that’s not working.
He asked me for a few ideas. Well, here’s one: Consider this your public invitation to Mr. Hartnell, who may now be forced to respond…
This is @Bertholomew, fiancé of @PrincessTalia23, and best friend of @DarylRocks1. I’m sure you recognize us by the crazy wedding crasher/invitation tweets you’ve been receiving recently.
I’m sure you are wondering why we are trying to get Scott Hartnell to come to our wedding on June 23 I could give you the boring “I’m a huge flyers fan” spiel (which I am), but you don’t want to read that crap. I guess I can attribute my dedication to you at Crossingbroad and your “Where is Scott Hartnell” posts. These post made me laugh and I realized that Scott Hartnell is willing to go anywhere for a good time. It seemed like if you were with Scott Hartnell, you were going to be in for a good time…a party animal you could say. Thus giving me the idea to invite Scott Hartnell to my…excuse me…*our* wedding. And with modern day media and the ability to interact with anyone at your fingertips, I started reaching out to him via twitter. It started out as a joke, but now I tweet daily, usually once to throw out a joke about the wedding to him in hopes of catching his eye with it. My fiancé and best friend do the same. Somehow this is captivating us and we are now dead set on getting Scott Hartnell to our wedding. I could have chosen Briere or Giroux and tried for the big star similar to the people who invited Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis to the Marine Ball.. That’s not my style. I’m all about the party and Scott Hartnell is the guest of honor we want for that simple fact. Guest list is at 325 people, so you know it’s going to be a party. Hopefully a party where we can get you some “Where is Scott Hartnell” material.
We’re going to keep trying the twitter route, and we’ve offered a donation to his charity, now we’re looking for another way to reach out to him to get an answer. YouTube seems like the next logical step, but any ideas or help you can offer is greatly appreciated as we try and get Scott Hartnell to our wedding. Call me crazy, but I think it can happen.
YouTube is good, Brett. And, depending on how protective you are of Talia, Scott is a single man… but that option is probably not on the table, so this is probably a good start.
The June 23rd wedding falls just a few days after the conclusion of the Stanley Cup Finals. Perhaps Scott can bring a silver-cupped +1?
UPDATE: So you're telling me there's a chance?
