Time to rock Hockey Night in Canada
Sunday, 24 August 2008
Never mind whether Detroit can repeat as Stanley Cup champions or whether Sidney Crosby can rebound to wrest the scoring title away from Alexander Ovechkin.
Here’s the big question: who’s going to win Canada’s Hockey Anthem Challenge? Back in June, CBC Sports launched the contest to find a replacement for the old Hockey Night in Canada theme song.
Well, I figured someone’s got to win, so it might as well be me. (Note: I like to think of this as positive thinking, not as a Mark Messier Game Seven-style guarantee. So far, more than 2,200 Canadian songwriters have uploaded their competing ditties. The judges’ ears will be screaming by the end.)
