Don Cherry salutes the Allan Cup

One other thing from yesterday’s Coach’s Corner, deserving of its own special post. Don Cherry took some time at the end of the segment to salute the Bentley Generals from Bentley, Alberta, winners of the 2009 Allan Cup, held in Steinbach, Manitoba. The Allan Cup has been, since 1909, the trophy awarded to the best senior amateur hockey team in Canada (since the Stanley Cup, originally intended for that purpose, was transformed into a professional trophy). These players don’t compete for money or contracts or media approval, but only for themselves and for their fans. Don brought out a special tie (don’t ask me why he didn’t wear it!) to mark the occasion:
