    Sure, "selfies" are hot.

    The next step is getting your selfie on a "fan face."

    And on Friday, hundreds of Polina Edmunds' fan faces - created by NBC Bay Area - will be for sale at an Olympic Ceremony party at the San Jose Sharks Ice arena - where the 15-year-old San Jose sophomore trains.

    Fans, friends and strangers can buy a "fan face" for $2, and root on the Archbishop Mitty High School sophomore from afar.

    The faces - OK'd by Polina's parents, Nina and John Edmunds, show the 98-pound skater's cheery face, with her blond hair pulled back in a black and white headband.

    All proceeds will go toward the American Cancer Society's Courageous Kids Day.

    Polina obviously liked the face. She retweeted a photo of NBC Bay Area employees Shawn Murphy and Damon LaRose - her fan face covering their mugs - on Thursday  from Munich, where she's hanging out and training before she heads to Sochi later this month.

     Sharks Ice is at 1500 S. 10th Street in San Jose. Call 408-279-6000 for more information.
