Canada’s Hockey Anthem Challenge
Well, hockey will soon start up again in a couple months and CBC has an anthem challenge for the Hockey Night in Canada program. CBC was foolish in letting the original Hockey Night in Canada Theme expire, resulting in TSN picking it up, so now they have planned a competition on picking a new theme. Entries are due by end of August with voting to begin October 4, 2008.

Canadians are proud of their sport of hockey, so I believe that some composer will submit a good theme by the deadline. For example, It’s Hockey Night in Canada.
