A Plea for Thesis Help!

The Hlogger girls have mostly seen this before, but I'm sure some of you intrepid readers out there haven't heard hide nor hair of it yet.

Click on through, and help a Hlogger with her masters thesis in just 5 easy minutes!

My MA thesis is on female hockey fans and other associated fan-like women of pro hockey (wives, girlfriends, ice girls, reporters, bloggers, to name a few)
These following links are for three separate surveys that hopefully target three separate groups of people that I think it could be valuable to have input from while writing this paper.

The first on google docs here, is for male fans, and asks questions on your relationship to hockey and your views on the female fans you have come into contact with.

The second on google docs here, is for female fans, and asks questions on how you view your interactions with hockey, and views on your fellow fans.

The third on google docs here, is for professional or high school/college level players (geared towards males, but I do have a female version floating around as well, if you want that).

All are completely anonymous and ask you simply to answer questions and or offer opinions. If there's anything else you wish to add, feel free to include it. If there are questions you have for me, feel free to email and ask.

I'm hoping that these will get caught in the viral aspect of the internet and spread and spread. Feel free to re-post the links on other blogs, link back here, print them out and try to hand them out physically, make paper airplanes out of them, whatever you want.
I'm also going to put all of these links up in a box in the sidebar of my site at There's no drop-dead date on this either as I'm still well into my research period.

Thanks to all of you who participate!

Writing your thesis on a 'fun' topic? Are you sure that's not cheating... seems like some kind of loophole...
