The Can News – Ottawa, ON
Don Cherry who was fired last week as the longtime face of Hockey Night in Canada after making controversial remarks about Opium poppies, signed today an 8-figure contract with KFC and will be the company’s new face for the next 2 years.
According to KFC, the company has been looking for a new person to replace the old Colonel Bernie Sanders (photo) since he became mentally ill in 2016.
What really happened in the Coach’s Corner? Read below the transcript released by CSIS yesterday:
Don Cherry: “You animals … you love our way of life…”
The cow and the bee: “You people… you love our milk and honey, at least you could pay us a couple of bucks for that…”
Don Cherry (angry): “Honey, these guys in Canada are already paying the biggest price for milk.”
Greta Thunberg (very angry): “How dare you?”
48 hours later: Don Cherry was fired, Greta Thunberg left North America, and the price of milk was still very expensive in Canada.
What’s next for Coach’s Corner?
Sportsnet said it plans to take the long-running segment in a new direction, and will change its name to “Roach’s Corner”.
With the sudden dismissal of Don Cherry from Hockey Night in Canada, there is a lot of speculation about who could replace him. There are rumors former CBC – The National’s anchor Peter Personsbridge, Ronald McDonald, or Star Trek’s William Shatner, may get the job.
