Tonight's broadcast of Hockey Night in Canada will be without Don Cherry and his "Coach's Corner" segment. Mr Cherry was canned by Rogers Sportsnet -- for good reason -- which will leave now former co-host Ron MacLean to his own devices. Rarely do I bother with a television broadcast of a National Hockey League (NHL) game, but tonight is my night. I await eagerly tonight's first intermission -- the great void.
"Coach's Corner" had always looked like a Community Cable (Public Access) show: A riser and two chairs is all you need for a set, certainly in this case. Time for an upscale? Perhaps Cherry's big mouth was a blessing in disguise.
Rogers has stated they have no concrete plans for a replacement segment.
This all makes me miss Bob Goldham....
