A buddy sent me the audio of this song several years back. This live rendition just polishes the apple a bit. While I’m not advocating Canada set the bar too low from a cultural perspective, don’t get your hopes up that this is going to help us win many points from an artistic flair perspective on the international stage. (But if you learn the words, you may come to appreciate it’s a great song 🙂
From the March 2012 end-of-season WOHL Symposium at the Central.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, who to the best of my knowledge never played hockey, once said something along these lines: “Men don’t quit playing because they get old, they get old because they quit playing.”
On that note, a bunch of hockey playing buddies and myself who are not quite willing to get old just yet are heading to Montreal this weekend for the second year in a row to keep on playing. I’m looking real forward to this, as much as I did any tournament I attended as a kid as last year’s event was a blast.
Stevie Nicks of Feetwood Mac crooned that “Players only love you when they’re playin'”. Hmmmm….I got nuthin’ here. I don’t think she ever played hockey either.
