Embrace Change

The news that the CBC intends to ditch the long-running theme song to Hockey Night in Canada has this page wondering what the media reaction will be.

Will they, as during the Radio Two debacle, wag their fingers at the hockey fans and encourage them to embrace change?

Or will they attack the CBC for breaking with tradition and rally people to support the good old days?

My money's on the latter. Let's see how this plays out, and I hope to be proven wrong.

UPDATE: Looks like I was wrong, but for reasons that had nothing to do with my post! Look like good ol' lucre was the deciding factor here, and not CBC's willingness to dispense with tradition.
