Graeme MacKinnon from Edmonton's The Wednesday Night Heroes is an entrant in the CBC's Hockey Night In Canada Anthem Challenge. The band commented:

This is totally ridiculous, and I think pretty hilarious. Graeme MacKinnon, from the Wednesday Night Heroes, and Wilfred Kozub from Wilfred N and The Grown Men, have entered a song into the CBC's Hockey Night In Canada Anthem Challenge. The song is called "Our Night (Hockey Night)" and is an ode to bootboy stormers like Slade, Geordie and even a little Gary Glitter (pre-pedophile era)!!!! Hear it for yourself, and have a laugh and a say!!!!

You can check out Graeme and Wilfred's entry here.

If you've been living outside of Canada (or inside of Canada and under a rock), you might not know that earlier this year the CBC (somewhat embarrassingly) lost the rights to the iconic and instantly recognizable theme song to their Hockey Night In Canada television program. They've since opened up a competition to Canadians to create a new theme, with heavyweights like Burton Cummings competing against basement musicians across the country. The entrants can be previewed and commented upon here.
