“Oh, Canada, we stand on guard fo-WHO PUT THAT DARN CARPET THERE, EH?”
Mark Donnelly experienced everyone’s worst nightmare IRL: tripping in public. The Canadian singer well known for singing his nation’s anthem at every Vancouver Canucks game stumbled over a carpet on the ice mid-song at a junior “A” hockey game on October 3rd.
Mark gets major brownie points though as he handled the incident like a boss. After he hit the carpet, Mark belly-slid, got back on his knees, tried (and failed) to stand twice, and then finally got up — all without missing a beat of the song. He even continued his tradition by encouraging the crowd to sing along with him.
Mark Donnelly: Canadian Hero.
