Cherry Hits 75

from Tim Wharnsby of the Globe and Mail,

Age has not lessened his roar and turning 75 will not mellow Don Cherry.

The controversial and flamboyantly-dressed Hockey Night in Canada commentator hit the three-quarter century mark today and he is as animated as ever….

“If anything I have turned it up,” Cherry said. “I don’t feel any different now than I did 30, 40 years ago. I still get so excited on Saturday’s that I can hardly wait for Coach’s Corner to start. A lot of people tell me to ease off a little so I wouldn’t get in so much trouble. But trouble is my middle name and I say things the way I want to.

“When the day comes that CBC wants to go in a different direction, as they say, I will think to myself that I’ve had a good run and say toodle-oo.”
