CBC's anthem contest gets interesting
I stopped by Hockey Night in Canada's Hockey Anthem Challenge page for the first time yesterday, hoping to hear some candidates for the new tune.
What I learned was that only one entry, Hockey Scores, is rated better than 2/5. You can see why:
Phenomenal. It's about time bizarre hockey-stick limbed creations got their due.
This is what happens when a cat, a baby, a sheep and a pile of Sher-Woods hop into one of those contraptions from The Fly. Trent Reznor does the score. Oren Koules could produce.
(Apparently the Maple Leafs want to pair the sheep with Jeff Finger next season.)
Here's what the theme would look and sound like as part of Hockey Night in Canada's intro. And here's what happened when the entry was apparently removed by CBC.
They made Hocky Cat cry!
The fan vote is only going to be one small factor in determining which song wins, but some are daring to dream. To quote poster Raoul Duke from hfboards: "If that thing actually won and they had to pay $100,000 for a cat meow song, it'd be one of the most hilarious things I've seen."
Puck Daddy has more.
