    Video: "On Hockey Days" - Raffi

    On Hockey Days single coverHockey has not exactly had the reputation of a gentle sport; perhaps as a result, gentle kids music legend Raffi is probably not the first kids musician to come to mind when you think of "kids song about hockey."  (Of, course, neither was James Superstar Kochalka, and his song was pretty good.)

    But, he is Canadian.  So perhaps that helps explain why he's just released a new song, "On Hockey Days," about the sport, and about youth hockey in particular.  It's a benefit song for his Centre for Child Honouring, and on the song's page for his website, he notes that the new song honors "hockey parents who devotedly take their kids to the rink all winter long, and sounds a call to fun, fair play and respect."  It's not a new album, but as a one-off single from Raffi, it's not bad at all.  The charity single was released north of the border last week and will be released here in the States tomorrow.

    Or just watch the video.

    IMHO, Raffi's appeal is incredibly enduring. (and not just because i am canadian, too.) this video is so charming and heartwarming:: hockey can provoke some terrible reactions from people, but at the root of it, it is a very fun sport that takes tons of skill. we are just coming off the 2011-2012 peewee season with our eldest, and it has been absolutely amazing. this video captures the earnestness and the fun. love it.
