CBC Gave Us Another Great Montage Last Night to Wrap Up the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs (Video)
The folks at the CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada gave us a pretty great montage at the start of the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs that captured the spirit of the pursuit for hockey’s Holy Grail. And on top of that, it featured The Who’s “Baba O’Riley.”
Then they gave us another montage prior to Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Bruins and Blackhawks. That was also pretty good, and it featured Neil Young’s “Hey Hey, My My.”
So did they have another montage ready to go after the Blackhawks won the Cup last night? You bet they did! And this time, it featured the Rolling Stones’ “Gimme Shelter.”
Take a look:
I thought I heard somewhere that CBC was having money troubles in recent years. However, judging by all the money they forked over for the rights to these classic tunes used to make their 2013 playoff montages, they can’t be hurting too much.
It kind of makes you wonder why they wouldn’t pony up the money to renew the rights to the iconic HNIC theme song a few years back, instead of letting it fall into the hands of TSN.
