I'm Sorry Mr. Cherry, How Many Times Is Your Name on The Cup?

One week after foaming at the mouth over A.O.'s goal celebrations, Don Cherry this week trained his sights on Ted Leonsis, and specifically made certain to thank him for comparing him to Rush Limbaugh. Cherry of course however went into passive aggressive mode and then ripped Ted for the whole Jagr fiasco noting, "he really knows hockey."

And then just went we didn't think Don could sink any lower in defense of the Ultimate Fighting on Ice he loves, he compared "hockey tradition" to "baseball tradition." He mentioned how baseball tradition dictates decorum, especially on home run, or you'll get a fastball in the ribs. He further told all the writers who criticized him how HE knows sports and THEY don't.

Yeah, we guess the NHL should bring back the bench clearing brawl seeing as how baseball fans all cheer when the benches clear after a little bit of beanball has gone on. It certainly keeps guys like Joe Carter from bouncing around like fools after hitting a home run. (and he did that to Philly!!!)

But seriously folks, A.O. is right, Don Cherry is senile. There's no need to get worked up over the guy and his weekly foot-in-the-mouth act.

UPDATE: Thanks go to Dan Steinberg here. Somebody should show this to Cherry ASAP...

The whole problem would be solved.
