Margaret Atwood Sings for “Score: A Hockey Musical”

Over the weekend, novelist Margaret Atwood blogged about her vocal participation in Score: A Hockey Musical–a Canadian movie starring Olivia Newton-John and Nelly Furtado.

To warm us up for the festivities, Salon.com linked to that video embedded above of The Handmaid’s Tale and Oryx and Crake doling out hockey advice on Canadian television.

Here’s an excerpt from Atwood’s blog: “here are some pictures from the set of Score: A Hockey Musical (yes, I sang, shameless me), due to launch October 22. Now that’s a concept … I didn’t see the part where they dance on skates. We were all in an arena freezing our feet off… including Eddie Shack, Walter Gretzkey, Theo Fleury, Alex Tagliani, Dan Hill, and the star, Noah Reid, and the director, Mike McGowan, and Jody Colero, who got me into it, and a jolly supporting cast of thousands!”
