Broadcasting icon and bestselling author Don Cherry is back to give us more of what we want: behind-the-scenes sports stories that are as colourful as his wardrobe.
For the last sixty years, Don Cherry has lived and breathed hockey. He has interviewed all of hockey's biggest names on Grapevine and "Coach's Corner," and he coached some of them too. But Don's interests span across all sports, and even beyond. In this unforgettable book, Don grants us unparalleled insider access to some of the most legendary athletes and figures of our time.
Follow Don to the 2018 Stanley Cup playoffs and to the pitcher's mound at Rogers Centre (and learn how the Blue Jays' Josh Donaldson saved his neck). Jet back in time to meet Bobby Hull, Phil Esposito, Scotty Bowman, John Ferguson and other greats--up close and unfiltered. Discover Don's opinions on the toughest guys he ever played against, "hockey parents," the role of fighting in the game, and the Hall of Fame (and who should be in it). Learn about Don's friendship with Gord Downie--the incomparable late frontman of the Tragically Hip and a lifelong hockey fan.
This is Don Cherry in all his hilarious and frank glory, spinning his yarns with the best of them.
