And as for high i feel about tradition and hockey: I grew up loving the sport in the late '80's up until the mid '90s. That to me was the glory days of hockey when tradition was actually a part of the NHL. Fast forward to today with teams in the most ridiculous of hockey markets, strikes, missing seasons, small Canadian markets getting fucked over for shittier smaller American markets. aaarrgghhh. I have lost so much respect for the NHL and the sport.
I don't even consider myself a hockey "fan" anymore. just a casual observer.
lol.... Fancy - it's purely because of bullshit corporate moves like this one that you and so many others have been turned off of hockey. You talk about the loss of tradition contributing to your sliding interest.... well hello!! That's what is happening here.
The reason you don't know of any other networks hockey theme songs...... is because they don't have one. That's the point.
