Here’s the video of the new intros that they showed on Saturday. What are your thoughts? I liked it…
The first few minutes or so nothing happens, just a song playing in the background.
Here is the timeline for the video:
3:00 ish – Cirque Eloize… pretty impressive acrobatic act
7:05 ish – This is the part they showed on CBC, the song, the acrobatic act, the bagpipes, drums, etc.
13:50 – Family friendly intro, much like the previous ones that many thought were dull (be prepared, the sound goes pretty crazy and untolerable for a bit).. which blends into……
15:00 – The action intro… they did a MUCH better job this year. Of course, they had a LOT of room for improvement as well, but I like it.
16:35 – On-ice player introductions
23:00 – Ceremonial puck drop
25:30 – Anthem singing
27:07 – Satuday Night / Battle Of Alberta Intro video
