Bryan Adams Shows His Jock Side At Grey Cup And Beyond

Bryan Adams, you’re alright. Anyone who saw the Grey Cup halftime show last night knows that although Adams has lived in England for the last few years, he’s still as Canadian as all heck. In near arctic weather, Adams, quite obviously on the verge of hypothermia, played a couple of songs. And, although frostbite was beginning to crop up on his ears, seemed to have a good time.

Bryan Adams, you’re alright. Anyone who saw the Grey Cup halftime show last night knows that although Adams has lived in England for the last few years, he’s still as Canadian as all heck. In near arctic weather, Adams, quite obviously on the verge of hypothermia, played a couple of songs. And, although frostbite was beginning to crop up on his ears, seemed to have a good time. He even did "Summer Of ’69," prompting the equally frozen crowd to join in a big singalong. It doesn’t get much more Canadian than that. Apparently Bryan enjoyed his involvement in the sporting event because sports fans are about to get another taste of the Canadian rocker. TSN has announced that they’ve commissioned Adams to record the new theme song to their Wednesday night hockey broadcasts. The song will be played every Wednesday throughout this year’s NHL season. Adam’s hockey song, "We’re Gonna Win," is a revamp of his 1996 song, "18 Til I Die." Adams rewrote the lyrics with Shania Twain husband/svengali Robert John "Mutt" Lange, to reflect the hockey-ness of the TSN broadcasts. "The references to hockey in the song have been enhanced to reflect the spirit of the game," Adams said in a statement. "It’s been a great season so far and I’m proud to be part of it." "We’re Gonna Win" will debut on TSN this Wednesday (November 19). To hear a 15-second clip of the song, visit the TSN website.
