The CBC broadcast this year’s Hockey Day in Canada festivities from Stratford, Ontario, home of the famous Stratford Shakespeare Festival. And what better way for Don Cherry to honour this location than with a little acting? Don graced us with a few lines from some Shakespare plays: the best was when he did Macbeth’s famous soliloquy about life, and wagged his thumb in the general direction of Ron MacLean when he said “It is a tale told by an idiot.” Anyway, enjoy these pictures of Don in golden robes (and a purple necktie) fit for royalty:

It’s another year of Hockey Day in Canada, which means it must be another day of questionable fashion choices from Don Cherry! I swear, I’m like a kid waiting to open birthday presents. All right, let’s see what we’ve got this year.
Ah! It’s everything I hoped for! And more—just who is that kid at the desk between Ron and Don? No, it’s not a descendant of Grapes, but rather young Max from Stratford, whose grandmother made him that suit jacket. Isn’t that cute?
(Note the brass instruments and drums used to herald Don’s arrival. A nice touch.)
Also: make sure not to miss Don Cherry doing Shakespeare on stage in Stratford!
