Watching the Leafs game on Saturday, I came to the realization that the first intermission of the first game on saturday is essentially a wash. Should it just get scrapped altogether?
Love him or hate him, you have to admit that Cherry's shtick has gotten a little stale. The eye-bruising suits (really? giant rose pattern? you would wear that outdoors?), the comic mispronunciation of names, the constant bellowing, the getting misty over "those fine boys".. Add to this the 5 minute bookends of commercials for a crappy suit company, and I'm starting to think this time could be better spent.
Personally, I'd love to have an additional Hotstove segment over a tragically seemingly endless tribute to the fallen to bagpipes. Didn't HNIC do a segment on Rememberance day at the beginning? I take Rememberance day fairly seriously (I'll watch the memorial services on tv, take a moment of quiet reflection, exercise my franchise in the voting booth) but it seems a little much. Perhaps this makes me some kind of unpatriotic lout, but the near prothlestizing from Grapes makes me a little uncomfortable.
Really though, the once a year tribute isn't the big issue. The main issue is that Coach's Corner rarely offers anything new, has a tedious amount of commercials, and usually gives me a headache. Now I know CBC will never fire Don since TSN would snap him up instantly..
Any thoughts on how it could be made more interesting? I was thinking Don goes on a dunk tank and Ron gets to throw 3 baseballs..
