Come again CBC?

Thursday, June 5, 2008
So, I'm sitting here watching the news .... and I think CBC has finally LOST their mind. How can they not RENEW the license for the Hockey Night in Canada theme song! Everyone (in Canada) knows the tune! It's our second National anthem!

Taking the Hockey Night in Canada theme song away would be like stripping The Great White North (Kanadian Korner) of their signature "coo-roo-coo-coo-coo-coo-coo-coo" theme song.

.... or taking Bruce Frisko away from Live at 5!

Everyone, and I mean everyone is up in arms about this.

Although, it seems now, that CBC is maybe trying to dig themselves out of a PR nightmare ... stating that a deal is still possible for Hockey Night Song.

Hockey Night in Canada just won't be the same without it's widely known song that makes it uniquely Canadian.

It's a fait accompli. Get out the black armbands!
