Cherry's jacket draws bouquet of Tweets
Hockey Night in Canada commentator Don Cherry's Game 7 sports jacket sent hockey watchers to their keyboards in the first intermission Wednesday night.
"When 'Coach's Corner' ends, Don Cherry's suit will be escorted to a cell at The Hague," commented Maclean's columnist Scott Feschuk.
Comic Carla Collins piped in: "Just saw Don Cherry's jacket for Game 7. Somewhere a couch in Woodbridge is missing its slip covers."
A Twitter user going by the label of OT_Group? added: "Is Cherry's jacket 'garden centre camo'?"
Other users offered:
- "Have Don Cherry and Elton John ever met? Because they should meet. And swap jackets."
- "Don Cherry's jacket is screaming, '"I know what happened to the ladies room BarcaLounger from Studio 54!'"
- "He needs a big pink hat with a feather."
Cherry has occasionally worn other rose-strewn coats in the past in honour of his beloved wife Rose, who passed away in 1997. He almost always wears a rose in his lapel as a tribute to her as well.
