CTV Wastes No Time Using "The Hockey Theme"

Now that "The Hockey Theme", also known as the "Hockey Night in Canada" theme, is no longer owned by the CBC after 40 years, rival CTV which bought the rights last week, is going to use it whenever they'd like.

Take for instance this past Sunday during the MuchMusic Awards show when Jason Spezza was introduced to hand out the award for "Best Rap Video" (Yes, I know what you're saying, "Spezza? Best rap video ? Really?"). When the Ottawa Senators forward walked out to the stage, a rock version of "The Hockey Theme" was played.

Since I don't know how to rip videos from a player, you're just going to have to head to this link to watch Spezza congratulate Belly and Mario Winans on their win.


Stick tap to David Staples of the Edmonton Journal's "Cult of Hockey Blog" for pointing this out.

Ballhype: hype it up!
