    It's all good. I could have used a better word to convey what I meant as I certainly didn't mean to insult you. I just don't get how you can list those purposes and not think all three of them are still parts of the game and always will be.

    There is less fighting now and that if fine but I would hate to see it dictated out of the game exactly because it does serve those purposes (except I personally don't care about the entertainment part of it).

    It keeps our sport on the edge and lends itself to a particular uniqueness that I like.

    Cherry’s mind is just about gone. It’s still nostalgic and I can’t imagibe Saturday’s without him, but man it’s getting hard to listen to him stumble through sentences.

    You guys can nitpick him on some minor pronunciation gaffs but Cherry is still #1 and it's not even close.

    Cherry knows Laine's Finnish.

    No one's mistaking Grapes for Wordsworth...He's on air, excited, advanced in years...I'm sure he forgot to qualify "good Canadian boy" with a "like a"...

    Laughing at a well-meaning elderly man for imprecision with words...Lord I hate the "information age" sometimes.

    I’m not vilifying him for it.

    I just thought the exchange between him and Ron was funny.

    “Look at him not celebrate, good Canadian boy”
    “He’s from Finland”
    “Whatever”

    His humility has earned him the honorary title of "Good Canadian Boy". :D

    I agree he didn't do it on purpose but at least acknowledge the mistake and don't dismiss it with a "whatever". I was disappointed but not surprised.

    Even McLean looked miffed about it.

    But...it is a "whatever" when considering the source, the intent and the context. The point is, it is dismissible all things considered. Harmless gaffes fall under the "whatever" umbrella. It's what a spirit of charity does. It absorbs the obviously harmless while simultaneously identifying the mistake as a mistake, but a harmless mistake.

    And one that doesn't require correction let alone irritation with correction.

    Honestly, Cherry was never that good to begin with unless you are a Leafs and/or Bruins fan. He is senile and makes little sense.

    Meh. I don’t put much value into what he says about the national league players. He’s stuck in the old time hockey. I just appreciate the passion he has for the game and the things he’s done for countless members of the world who have passed away. He comes off as he legitimately cares.

    I’d miss him leaving HNIC the same I would ron and the same I will bob cole
