Thanksgiving Top 10 (Tuesday): Most memorable Don Cherry moments…

Somewhere on the Eastern Shore of JapanI hate to say it with the kids listening…” but I loves me some Don Cherry. Ron and Don are that familiar shining beacon of home that I seem to cling to when I’m overseas, and missing all things hockey. Four days ago on the Opening Night of the NHL, Don Cherry was once again put under the microscope for some of his flavourful remarks on Hockey Night in Canada. Don touched on topics such as the NHL cracking down on mammoth sized hits, and even suicide, and, of course, everyone got offended! What’s wrong with you people? This is Don fucking Cherry! The world of hockey wouldn’t be the same without his passionately delivered outlandish remarks! It’s just damn fine television, if you ask me! So, as a special (and rare) Thanksgiving installment of Top 10 Tuesday, we look at some of the most memorable moments from G-DILF extraordinaire, Don Cherry! Enjoy! “What a hitter, boy! What a guy! Hall of Famer!”

10. “Put that in your pipe, you left-wing kooks!”

“Actually, I’m wearing pinko for all the pinkos out there that ride bicycles and everything. I thought I’d get it in… I’ve been bein’ ripped to shreds by the left-wing pinko newspapers out there. It’s unbelievable. One guy called me a jerk in a pink suit, so I thought I’d wear that for him, too, today.

9. On fan antics hitting below the belt…

“There’s only one thing I’ve gotta ask you guys, if the glass wasn’t there, would you do it? I don’t think so. Smarten up! You look like jerks!”

8. On fighting avec visor…

“Buttercup, you cannot do stuff like that! If you’re gonna be a tough guy, get the visor off! There’s nothing wrong with visors. You’ve made your priority safety. It’s alright with me. But that to me, and I hate to say it, is a cowardly act.”

7. “Is this Hockey Night in Canada or Hockey Night in Russia?”

“They suck, and they always have sucked!”

6. A heartfelt apology for yet another questionable remark on Russian hockey players…

“All I’ve got to say is this. All-all-all I’ve got to say is this. And I don’t wanna go into it. I meant and did every word I said. And I don’t regret one word I said. You got it? I meant every word of it? Got it? And that’s it! That’s it from Coach’s Corner. Let’s go, Paul! We are through on Coach’s Corner. Got it?”

5. He likes the Christmas Jesus the best…

“I have to say it. December 25th Baby Jesus birthday. I love Santa, but let’s not be silly!”

4. A man crush on Colton Orr and a flowery suit… “I better watch the way I talk in this jacket.

“Watch this guy. This is how fighters get ready. This is how they get ready. This is a MAN! This is a GUY! This is a guy you’d like at the end of the trench. How do you like that? *giggles* Isn’t that beauty?”

3. Advice for female hockey fans… “What a wimp!”

“When you come to the games, keep your eyes on the puck! And I’m tellin’ ya, I’ve seen some awful smacks, and it’s always a woman yappin’ away there. Look at the game!”

2. On Russian hockey players…

“They’re nothin’! N-O-T-H-I-N Nothin’! Canada! Number 1!”

1. “Are you saying Natives have an inferiority complex?”

“Fair shake in life? Go out and get your own fair shake and work for it! Don’t gimme that stuff!”
