Canada’s Gold Inspires “Hockey Song” Remake (Video)

hockey songMost of you familiar with the game of hockey have likely heard of the popular “Hockey Song” by Stompin’ Tom Connors, which you can often find blasting on the loud speakers between whistles at an arena near you (“Oh, the good old hockey game, it’s the best game you can name…).  You should also be familiar with the fact that hockey is Canada’s game.

Therefore, it should come as little surprise that following Canada’s gold medal victory over the United States at the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver, a few Canadians decided to get creative, taking out their pens and pencils and remaking “The Hockey Song” to fit with our country’s latest accomplishment on the world stage.

The song starts from the beginning and takes fans along a journey though Canada’s memorable ride to the gold, with a few mildly-profane words along the way (don’t worry, it is still SFW).

Whether it is Canada’s best Olympic hockey song remains up for debate (how can we forget the Hockey Canada rap), but if you were wearing a maple leaf on your chest this past Sunday, this clip should be enough to bring back those goose bumps.
