A Double Dose Of Don Cherry

from Patrick Kennedy at theToronto Sun,

"It used to be I'd go right home after Coach's Corner, have five fast beers and watch that second game," Grapes said. "Cold pops, a bowl of peanuts, some cheese and crackers and, hey, I'm right in heaven.

"Now they're making me stick around a little longer."

Holy senior abuse, Batman.

No word on whether Cherry is to be compensated for the extra toil, although at an estimated $800,000 per season, he'll get by.

"We're back on Jan. 19th, the Montreal-Toronto game in Montreal," the colourful commentator pointed out over the phone Tuesday. "But this year, they want me to hang around until the end of the first period of the second (televised) game. I'll comment on it, too, and give fans out west a chance to hear me talk about their teams."

I’m guessing it’s Molson and brie, not PBR and cheddar. smile

No ego there, boy. What an over-hyped tool.
