Photoshop or not? Regardless, life is too short not to post this. From Deadspin:
There’s a photo of Hockey Night In Canada host Ron MacLean making the rounds on Twitter and HFBoards, and the hockey community is split on its legitimacy. (The awesomeness community is unanimous on its awesomeness.)
I saw that The Puck Stops Here mentioned this earlier, but I thought I’d also pop up the CBC video which announced the winner of CBC’s Hockey Theme contest. The winning tune is titled Canadian Gold. (And I like it. It’ll definitely grow on me.)
Incidentally, while the winner took home $100,000 and major bragging rights for all time, the ‘loser’—the second finalist—wasn’t so lucky. His compensation amounted to a piece of Patrick Roy paraphernalia, a custom-made guitar. Admittedly, it sounds like a cool bit of paraphernalia, but still, it’s Patrick Roy -related.
How freakin’ brutal is that?!
As I wrote back in July:
Darcy Tucker does have career aspirations. And although there’s no confirmation that hockey is among them, he and Ron MacLean of Hockey Night in Canada have undertaken a new venture this summer: acting.
