Hilarious story today about Don Cherry from Deadspin about Don Cherry on Twitter - he tweets by phoning the CBC!
It was a crushing moment for me, as I actually somehow believed that Don was tweeting himself from a phone or a computer. I know I should know better and hell hasn't frozen over (although it's gotta be close with all the lockout business) and Don Cherry is of course not TWEETING. The only reason I believed he was is that you only have 140 characters per tweet and Don always needs four tweets to get his point across instead of one. I can only imagine how awesome it is to be the other person on the end of those calls at CBC...I thought I was working my dream job but now I know I am not!
As Don says about fighting in hockey, I will say the same about Mr. Cherry...it's either your cup of tea, or it isn't! Personally, I think he's the biggest beauty of ALL TIME and I love the guy. It is most certainly on my bucket list to be able to meet him and shake his hand. I don't need an autograph, I don't need a picture, I just need to meet THE MAN!
Hey Grapes, why not keep busy during the LOCKOUT and come out to the Island and catch some great hockey in the Dog Pound? A Don Cherry look-a-like contest is one thing, but NO ONE can look like you but YOU! Show up here and I will kiss you like you kissed Dougie Gilmour!
