"There was some controversy when Hockey Scores, one of the highest-rated submissions, was not chosen as a semi-finalist.
Voting commenced on October 4, 2008, with 2 finalists being picked for a final 1-day vote."
My two cents:
In 2008 CBC (TV network) lost the rights to their Hockey Night in Canada theme song. They decided to create a contest were Canadians could upload their music in hopes of being the new theme song by one of the most widely watched sporting events across the nation.
The winner was an absolute troll and was never used. The new and current theme song was eventually chosen is called "Canadian Gold".
Contest and hilarious comments no longer exist, but here's the contest details from 2008:
