In which I actually agree with Don Cherry

Tonight’s Coach’s Corner saw Don Cherry sporting the same jacket he wore not one week ago, but with a different shirt and tie (bumblebee themed? another springtime reference? hmm…). But this week it’s Ron’s jacket that I’m not really sure what to make of. The colour doesn’t really match either the Hockey Night in Canada set or Don’s shirt, and his narrow tie just makes the whole thing look strange to my eyes.

Also, during the segment, Grapes had a few words of advice for the San Jose Sharks, who were swept out of the playoffs by the Chicago Blackhawks yesterday. He told them to ditch the teal sweaters and praised their black uniforms (“BlackArmor” as they’re officially called; silly name). For once, I agree with him. Teal hockey sweaters? Seriously? I mean, it’s been that way since the team was formed in 1991, and ever since then I’ve thought it was a silly fashion choice.

Of course, this is Don Cherry giving other people advice on how to dress. (We’ve seen this before, remember?) Glass houses, Grapes.

(On the other hand, this is not nearly the worst hockey jersey ever designed—that dubious honour belongs to the infamous St. Louis Blues third jersey, which, fortunately, never actually saw the light of day:

…and I have nothing more to say.)
