Sports on Canadian TV: February 25, 2012

Ten years ago today was the final day of the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympic Winter Games. Of course the Canadian men’s hockey team won gold, their first in 50 years. Only four members of that Canadian team are still playing today (Gagne, Iginla, Brodeur and Smyth). Here is the montage CBC played to close out their 2002 Olympics coverage. It is one of the best.

  1. I wish someone had uploaded on Youtube the Olympic Montages that CBC did for the 2000, 2004 and 2008 Olympics in Sydney, Athens and Beijing respectively.
    Here is the link for the 2006 Olympic Montage by CBC. Those games were in Turin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Se2wUriYZX0

    • The 2008 one is there:

      There was one guy who had a ton of CBC/CTV Olympic videos a few years back. All of the opening titles, montages and even some clips of the opening ceremony and such from 1992-2008. His account got shutdown (or he closed it) a couple years back.

      I wish I had kept those montages. I definitely had the 2000 and 2002 closing ceremonies on VHS. I had 2008 on DVD. I think I still have 2010 on DVD as well. Not sure about ’04 or ’06.

  2. Jovanovski and Brewer are still in league, and Pronger isn’t retired… yet.

  3. Josh, I think you missed one. RFO also airs Six Nations Rugby for Ireland vs Italy at 08:20 – 10:20.

What do you think?
