Hockey Rock


Speaking of Hockey and Rock and Roll (Canadian) the 2007 Juno Cup has been decided.
PRINCE ALBERT, Sask. (CP) - They played with heart - and even made a last-minute trade for a goalie - but in the end a team of musicians couldn't beat the NHL Greats at the Juno Cup.

More than 2,500 people packed a local arena to see The Rockers, led by Blue Rodeo's Jim Cuddy, lose to the NHL Greats by a score of 11-9. The game preceded the annual Juno Awards for the best in Canadian music which will be presented at weekend galas in Saskatoon.

"We know we're going to get our butt kicked," said Cuddy. "It's just that they're so skillful, they make it slightly different each year. [...]

Although spectators could be forgiven for wondering if the NHL Greats played fairly.

On more than one occasion players, on the bench were spotted with their sticks on the ice, trying to swipe the puck from musicians as they passed.
Former NHL greats needing to resort to cheating to beat a bunch of rock and rollers. What's this world coming to?

Aaah, there's no need to answer that one. I already know the answer.
