Checking in with Hockey Scores
But how have the babies and sheep held up? Are they still on top of the leaderboard? Well, you probably don't care but I'm going to tell you anyway.
With ten days remaining in the competition, Hockey Scores remains atop all the leaderboards. It lead in views, with twice the amount of views as the second place Take it Higher. It's also has more comments and a higher rating than any other anthem on the CBC's website. And with a facebook group that numbers more than 1,300 people it's clear whom the people have chosen -- if only jokingly -- to win the CBC's anthem competition.
The only obstacle left is to see whether or not the CBC is going to fix the vote, like the NHL may or may not have done during the infamous 'Vote for Rory' campaign. After all, the CBC smartly added the rule that their decision is final, regardless of vote count, rating or whatever else. If they don't pick Hockey Scores, there is sure to be an internet uprising. Somehow, I don't think they're worried about that. But there will be backlash, however big or small it may be and I feel like is not the last we'll hear about Hockey Scores. At least until the techno-geeks start raising hell after it gets brushed aside.
