The Toronto Star is reporting that in its infinite wisdom, the CBC has decided not to renew their licensing agreement with the composer/owners of the most famous theme song in the country, meaning next year Hockey Night in Canada viewers will not start their Saturday nights with the awesomeness of what the composer calls "Canada's second national anthem." (In university I thought that was "New Orleans is Sinking" ... but what do I know.)
Sad, really that the CBC ruins a great month for them (exciting finals, ridding themselves of doddering old men, etc) by nickel and diming their way out of the song we all grew up with. I suppose they needed the cash for more Air Farce reunion specials and clever gags perpetrated against French people. That sleepy policeman gets me every time!
Ah, fuck it. What do Habs fans care? We're all watching RDS.
