VIDEO: Watch Hockey Night in Canada’s Ron MacLean dance groovily to “Let Your Backbone Slide”
Ron MacLean is known for many things: his vast knowledge of hockey, his life-saving dip in the Delaware River and his patience with Don Cherry. Now, we can add “dancing” to that list. Zip ahead to 2:00 of this live performance of “Watch Your Backbone Slide” to see McLean slide on stage with Maestro Fresh Wes and do a one-legged groove reminiscent of everyone’s favourite uncle at a wedding with an open bar (there’s some great faux-punch interaction between the two Canadian media titans at about 3:20, too). The event, which also featured the stars of Battle of the Blades, was part of the CBC Connects lunchtime events that happen in the atrium of their building every Wednesday at noon.
