If you haven’t caught a little thing called the Canucks playoff fever just yet, you better catch it soon. Why? TELUS and Sportsnet have launched the MIKE Playoff Beard Challenge and are looking for teams who think they’ve got the facial follicles to beat. Just go to No Ordinary Phone and enter your team to grow their beards during the playoffs. One team at the end of the playoff season has the chance to win: a 47” HD TV, NHL tickets for their entire team for next season to see either the Leafs, Senators, Flames, Oilers or Canucks, and MIKE handsets. Check out this video of some of the bushiest beards in Toronto to get more of the gist of the contest.
Also, makes sure to check out the same site to demo the text-to-speech function of the TELUS Mike push to talk handsets. You can type in a funny message, hear them say it and then share it on your favourite social networking site or send it to your friends.
