There are few things that piss off Canadians (right Krista?)
1. American Beer
2. Messing with hockey or anything associated with it
The CBC had a license agreement to use the familiar Hockey Night in Canada theme song. It ran out recently:
The “Hockey Night in Canada” theme song, a mainstay of Canadian households for 40 years and often thought of as the unofficial second national anthem, may have launched its final hockey game, according to the company that controls use of the song.
The tune, which has opened the Canadian Broadcasting Corp’s Saturday night National Hockey League broadcasts since the late 1960s, will not be renewed as the broadcaster has chosen to move in a new direction, said John Ciccone, president of Copyright Music & Visuals.
This is not funny and I hope it is a joke. The Hockey Night in Canada theme song is as ubiquitous as Don Cherry and hockey itself! Canadians will hate this.
