Phil Davies, a former International Hockey blogger for Kuklas Korner (until teaching took over his life;), has entered CBC's Hockey Night in Canada's "Next Great Hockey Song" contest.
CBC has asked Canadians' to write a stadium-sized rocker to accompany HNIC's opening montage for Hockey Day in Canada.
Fans can vote once a day from an IP address, by listening to the song or by creating a CBC account (takes 30 seconds), and either "liking the song" or adding it to their CBC playlist.
The initial voting takes place until December 11th, when the five judges (including Theo Fleury and P.J. Stock), narrow down the contestants to 50.
The final 10 songs will then be selected and public voting will determine the winning song, which will be announced during CBC's coverage of the Winter Classic between the Detroit Red Wings and the Toronto Maple Leafs. As a Canadian on a Wings-friendly website, I will keep which team am I rooting for quiet.
Please support a fellow KK member in hoping to rock HNIC. I'll post some updates on the contest throughtout the next few weeks.
If I can get your support and somehow win this contest, I am also offering to drive down to Detroit and personally buy Paul Kukla steak dinner at a restaraunt of his choice!
You can listen and vote for the song here at the CBC Songquest website.
My hometown paper; the Peterborough Examiner also ran a story in Saturday's paper.
