Don Cherry On The Carolina Hurricanes T-shirts

from the CP at CBC,

Don Cherry doesn't think the Carolina Hurricanes are very funny. But he admits their shirts are.

The TV hockey commentator called the Hurricanes a "bunch of jerks" on Saturday night when sharply criticizing their elaborate post-game celebrations at PNC Arena in Raleigh, N.C. The next day the team started selling a shirt with the phrase emblazoned across the chest, proudly declaring in a tweet on Sunday that "the jerk store is open."

"I don't mind it, if they want to have fun with it," said Cherry with a laugh. "I'm sure some of the players are embarrassed but when the owner [Thomas Dundon] says 'be more entertaining,' I guess that's what they call entertaining."...

"We in Canada, at least most of the people I know in Canada, revere the game. I don't think there's any secret there," said Cherry. "I guess I'm the only guy who said it, but that's why I said it. I mean it, I mean every word.
