Don Cherry Sticks Up for America and National Anthem During Wartime

Ever since I talked about the controversial and shocking story of fans booing the National Anthem, "some guy" named Don Cherry waxes poetic on the issue, which in turn creates a bigger issue. Should athletes and celebrities way in on the war; swaying public opinion? This article from Mark Spector of the National Post delivers an opinion column of the way Cherry addressed the war. In the segment "Coaches Corner" in CBC's broadcast of Hockey Night in Canada, legendary NHL coach Don Cherry gave support to the U.S. for the war on terrorism and condemned his Canadian countrymen for being disrespectful to America for their lack of support.

Don Cherry, always a stand up guy, chose to take some flack, but has not strayed from his "old school" views.
