Tragically Hip Forever Canada’s Band

Millions of people watched on CBC what could be The Tragically Hip’s last performance. It’s public knowledge that their lead singer, Gord Downie has terminal brain cancer. Glioblastoma is a brain tumor and while un-curable, Gord certainly didn’t look anything less than his old, energetic self. He is a great performer and true Canadian legend; The whole band is. Hopefully this farewell tour will help raise awareness and funding for glioblastoma research. Get better soon, Gord, we’re all pulling for you.

The Tragically Hip will forever be Canada’s band.

Hockey superstar Connor McDavid got the game winning goal and Cam Talbot got the shutout. Matt Duchene got the other goal; an empty-netter to seal the deal with one second left.
