Hockey Night In Canada - New Theme

It looks like the CBC has chosen it's new HNIC theme song. After going through hundreds of original compositions by Canadians, they finally chose this one...

Fairly bland - nothing too fancy. The song was composed by Colin Oberst, an elementary school teacher from Beaumont, Alberta. What I can't understand is the bagpipes. They may be Canadian, but they originated in Scotland and haven't we discussed how the Brits have denigrated hockey already? For Cripes Sake!

The other (better) finalist was Robert Frasier Burke, a thirteen year old from Toronto.

Either way, they both pale to the original.

And did anyone notice from both videos - the HNIC map pans out from... Minnesota. Nothing surprising there.
