Hockeyville, Kraft style

Kraft Hockeyville

For those who don't know:

Kraft Hockeyville is a Gemini Award-winning Canadian reality television series developed by CBC Sports and sponsored by Kraft Foods, the NHL and the NHL Players' Association in which communities across Canada compete to demonstrate their commitment to the sport of ice hockey.
Stirling-Rawdon ,Ontario is Kraft Hockeyville 2012!
Winning the title includes the following:
Stirling-Rawdon will host a preseason game this fall between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Columbus Blue Jackets, receive $100,000 in arena upgrade money from Kraft Canada, and enjoy a visit from CBC's Hockey Night In Canada. The town will also receive $10,000 in food bank donations from Kraft Canada.

Someone was cleaning out their desk on my floor at work and I found this felt pennant advertising the 2008 Hockeyville contest.

Has the Hockeyville logo in the top left and on the bottom right, the copyright for the NHL,NHLPA and CBC.

Does anyone still collect these? I don't know but here are a few from my collection.

Minnesota North Stars--This did have a Brian Bellows blue ink auto but it has faded.

Team Canada

Detroit Red Wings--1987 NHL SloPitch Tourney with blue ink autos of Derek Smith,Greg Stefan and a few faded.

Molson NHL SloPitch Tourney 1987 with autos of Don Luce, Dave Hutchinson, Brad Berry, Chris Nilan, Murray Oliver, Les Binkley, Doug Rombough and more.

I guess they do but I imagine a lot of people have those car flags now to show their support. Golly gee, I have me some of those too.


The following may contain images that may be disturbing to viewers of all ages..

That's FOUR (4) different Leaf flags. These were from a best of times, from the winter of hope, not the spring of despair. Leaf Nation, our time will come again.
