   Listen, I know it's been a hard couple of months for us NHL fans, but allow me to offer a bit of good news in this sea of gloom and doom: Don Cherry was attacked by a swarm of angry bees yesterday

There are not enough words to express the joy I feel every time someone complains that a major league season has been canceled.

Not because I don't necessarily enjoy watching said sport, but, rather, because the butt-hurt that sports fans who think this stuff actually matters fills my schadenfreude implant to overflowing.

I'll make sure to let the thousands of stadium workers and other people tangentially involved with these organizations who are all jobless for the holidays know that you're feeling pretty smug about all this.

I like Don Cherry. I don't agree with everything he says, but he's genuine and truly cares about the game of hockey.

I will truly be sad when the day comes that he is no longer with us.


Remember when IOC asswipe Dick Pound went on record saying that he wouldn't be surprised if 50% of NHL players were doping and he said this with no evidence to back it up?

It was Don Cherry who brought him on national television on Coach's Corner to be held to account for those words because Cherry was so offended that Dick Pound would slag 50% of NHL players with no proof.

That's what a stand up guy does.

/Cherry, not Pound

Let's just make our own season! Use NHL '13 to simulate the cancelled games, streamed live online with hockey nerds providing commentary. Cherry can put obnoxious backgrounds on his Twitter account and exchange tweets with Ron MacLean between periods.

They were probably wearing visors like the sissies they are. Fark Don Cherry, the fact he was voted one of the greatest Canadians is a national embarrassment. I hope the bees managed to sting his tounge or larynx, to shut him up for a bit, so the bee's deaths weren't in vain.

Thanks! While you're at it, be sure to recommend to them that when the season starts back up, they don't just cheerfully walk back into those jobs as if nothing ever happened, because the owners have demonstrated that they've screwed them over once and will gladly screw them over in the future for "The good of the League."

Don't forget him sending too many men on the ice in the playoffs, costing him a chance to advance to the finals and possibly win the Stanley Cup.

Say what you want about Cherry, he's good for the game. You don't need to be a HoFer to be good for the game. And I love the idea of him getting swarmed by bees in his shed. Waiting for video, or perhaps a Raid commercial.

He has to be very careful going outside in the spring or summer because bees are constantly mistaking him for a field of flowers.

To tell the truth, a lot of CBC sports commentators have trouble with bees. It's those bright monochromatic sports jackets they are all made to wear. But Don Cherry also has to worry about hummingbirds and gorillas because scarlet is not enough colour for him.

He's got more colour than a drinking contest between W.C. Fields and H.L Mencken in a Bourbon distillery cellar.

Although Don Cherry is quasi-unique, it is not unusual for Canadian men of his generation to wear tartan jackets that make the Quebec Provincial Tartan look like the Stewart Ancient and Weathered.

Here's a website to help you visualize that. Dim the room lights if you can to prevent permanent eye damage.

P.S. This is why Canadians watch Hockey Night in Canada with the lights off. They're not napping. They're waiting for Don Cherry to finish his rant so they can turn the TV off and go to bed.

If you can make them laugh, that's half the fight?

And if I got that right, then it's probably true that they also won't beat you to death with your cracker leg.

Lol... Don's the man. Never fails to crack me up.

Been following the AHL closer this season than in the past...

I kind of feel like normal even more so than if the NHL season was a go, because I'm rooting for a Bruins team that's in last place and can't keep a lead to save their lives. : )

You know who riffs well off of Don Cherry? Fellow Traditional Pride Day Flag, Craig Thompson.

Reminds me of the old joke.

Don Cherry and Craig Thompson argued for hours but the only thing they could agree on was that all gay men should be hung.

Depending on your age, you probably know that joke with Jerry Falwell and Gore Vidal or Barney and whatever right wing homophobic looney is best-known in your state.

For some reason, blowhards and Quintin Crispy gays just work well together, like chocolate and wafers.

Maybe the NHL fans could get together and play a pick up game. Yeah, you would have to skate 4 on 4 due to lack of players, but that would open up the ice more.

That is Bergsonian laughter because in your heart you know that if Don Cherry is attacked by a swarm of bees, he did everything he could to deserve it. He's the snobby dowager to the bees' Three Stooges.

It's like Rush Limbaugh being swarmed by Dominican rent boys on the streets of Santo Dominico.

It's like Mitt Romney being spat out by Great Whites.

It's like rain on your wedding day. No, wait, that's a bad example of irony.

He's a proud member of the Royal Canadian Legion. They all dress that way if they are old enough to remember the War, any war. It's alpha-male colouration for Legionaires, like the cheek pads of dominant ourangotangs.

Why do Scots play golf? Why do urban wannabes show off their briefs? Why did Phyllis Diller look like a kindergarden pipe cleaner and feather project gone horribly wrong?
