The Hip @ The Hour
Okay, so I'm watching the second show of the new season at this moment, and George has just finished talking about The Tragically Hip's upcoming appearance on the show to promote their new album World Container, on October 15th. Personally, I'm stoked for the album and I can't wait to see them perform on The Hour, but to make the deal even better, George and those at The Hour have passed out the invite to get tickets to the show to see The Hip's performance.
If I lived in Toronto or in any surrounding area, I would be jumping all over this. The Hip are an incredible Canadian band who could not get any better in a live venue, and I want to help make it possible for you to see them at The Hour, since I cannot.
However, there's one problem. George has made it a little harder to land these tickets, demanding you answer a question about The Tragically Hip first. The question? Name one hockey player other than Bill Barilko (who is more than just mentioned in "Fifty Mission Cap") that The Hip have sung about. I instantly knew the answer, and George helped a little bit by singing a small verse from the song with the answer in it.
And because I am such a wonderfully helpful person, take a listen to the song yourself! And if you're in the Toronto area and can make the show on Sunday, October 15th, contact The Hour to enter the contest HERE, with the answer to the skill testing question.
If not, just enjoy the song, it's great!
