Hockey is the heart and soul of Canada.
It is not just a sport but a philosophy of life with
Hockey Night in Canada being one of the most familiar
cultural experiences of being Canadian during those cold
winter nights. Canada claims world domination in
the sport and is utterly depressed when it loses at the
Olympics or a World Junior Championship, but more often
then not celebrates more expressively and emotionally
when the Gold comes home.
Hockey transcends the idea of the sport and has
become one of the most popular representations of art. The Hockey
night in Canada jingle is recognized just behind O
Canada as Canada's song and the country comes to a
complete haul during the Gold medal game. The final of a
super series, or the last few minutes of a Canada cup
game transfix the country. Hockey is Canada and it is a
passion that unites, splits, depresses and brings us
those glorious moments
that last a lifetime.
