A new article about Don Cherry and Coaches’ Corner and why he should retire is out there. I am not a fan of Don Cherry primarily because he cannot put two sentences together. He is often times incoherent and is stuck in the 1980’s Boston Bruins past. He is not a sign of the times except maybe bad times. He appears to me from his commentary on TV to have been a bully player. As a player and as a coach he sometimes brings out the worst in many of us. The kids used to love him but that love is now fading like everything else considered to be Maple syrup by the new generation of Canadians. He is way past his best before date. Like Bob Cole, the iconic Maple Leaf’s broadcaster Don’s “jersey” should have been retired a long, long time ago.
On the other hand he is a non apologetic Canadian. Something this country dearly lacks, especially with our political leadership. He is patriotic, loves our military and police forces and instills a sense of Canadian pride that he himself wears on his sleeve. But given his conservative values, views and Canadiana pride you will never, ever see Don Cherry elected into the Hockey Hall of Fame or be nominated to the Order of Canada. A proud Canadian maybe but he is not considered progressive enough for the snotty, smug elitist hierarchy that runs this country. Don Cherry is considered way, way too blue collar for their liking.
I am reading articles now that are putting the Liberals in the lead. How can this be? What with all of the scandals and corruption out there? Or is this just more media liberal bias? Probably.
Vancouver Pride bans University of British Columbia from participating in the upcoming Pride celebrations. Why? They dared to allow someone on their campus to speak out about some of the LGBT community activities. Of course Pride prides itself for being all inclusive, apolitical as long as that all inclusiveness, apoliticalness notions are not critical of them.
We do not need Pride. They need us.
It is coming to this. LA coffee chain bans NBA star Kaw-hi from all of its locations after the star failed to sign with the LA Lakers…. Geesh, your coffee ain’t that good.
By the way, how do you pronounce that name anyway. Kaw….Hi….. as in…. Raw….Hide…… Don’t know, just saying, that’s all.
Quebec now joins Ontario, Alberta, New Brunswick, Saskatchewan and Manitoba in their fight against the Federal government’s carbon tax.
I wonder what Quebec wants from the Feds now.
A hat that embodies pure evil? What you may ask? A hat emblazoned with “Make America Great Again.” read Don Cherry above.
All beer drinkers out there will understand this.
And don’t worry, be happy. To all you guys out there. Have a beer.
Have a great day.
