9780133634990: Grapes: A vintage view of hockey

A Wild Look at Life in Hockey...To millions of Canadians, Don "Grapes" Cherry is the irascible co-host of "Molson Hockey Night's Coach's Corner," whose controversial, candid and highly spirited commentary has endeared him to hockey fans throughout the provinces. A larger-than-life figure in the annals of hockey, Cherry has done it all-from minor league player to head coach of the Boston Bruins to gregarious commentator. His is a story that only he could tell-because no one else could do him justice.

BY THE MAN WHO'S SEEN IT ALL! Favorite of the fans, players and press, Cherry takes you battling through the bush leagues, where the stick-swinging defenseman put up with the bus rides and burgers-while the NHL live like kings. You'll relive his glory days in Boston, where he clicked as coach until teh Bruins blew the Stanley Cup-and Cherry got blamed. You'll find out why he had to say :no" to teh dream chance of coaching the Maple leafs. You'll meet players like Bobby Orr and Wayne Gretzky...the managers and owners who blackballed him...and Blue, the white bull terrier reputedly the brains behind his coaching success. Undoubtedly the most colorful character who ever laced up a pair of skates, Cherry offers a no-holes-barred account of his triumphs, his defeats and his remarkable comeback.
