All things Donald S. Cherry

Pull up a chair, here's a tumbler of scotch, and help yourself to the sybian, good times that we'll all remember.

I had a nightmare, or more of an afternoonmare, that Ron passed away before Don.

I'm having nightmares in daytime, wide awake, trying to relate. Feel better chiclet.

Baseball, saunas and salmon sandwiches: Meet the Don Cherry nobody knows


“I don’t go anywhere,” Cherry said. “I don’t do exciting things. I’m kind of boring.”

You won’t see him in a restaurant, in a casino, in a hotel lobby, at a craps table, almost anywhere. Cherry doesn’t go out. He rarely leaves his hotel room.

“He is almost a recluse,” said Ron MacLean, his close friend and professional sidekick. Not a recluse, completely, but an 84-year-old icon in his 37th year on television who sticks to a routine, a most unusual routine, rarely changing anything.


Every day on the road is seemingly the same. It doesn’t matter what the city is or what is around him. He has breakfast in his room. Oatmeal and all-bran in a glass, put together by his wife, Luba. Before practice or a morning skate, his longtime associate Kathy Broderick brings a muffin. Lunch, in his hotel room, consists of salmon sandwiches made by his wife.

“It’s the greatest thing in the world,” said Cherry, the eccentric. “Salmon, cheese, mayo, after a couple of days the salmon soaks into the bread.”

“It’s more like a pudding than a sandwich,” MacLean said. “But it is delicious.”

Cherry, who used to have restaurants in his name, said he’s not a “restaurant guy. I’ve never gone out for dinner (on the road). Ever. I get invited a lot. I just don’t go. I’m a construction worker. I’m a construction worker, minor-league hockey player. This is the food for me, this is what I’ve always eaten.”

Dinner will come from room service on nights where there are no games and, routine being routine, at 9:30 every night, he will join MacLean in his room for a beer. Always at 9:30. Never earlier, never later. MacLean is a neat freak. It doesn’t look like anyone lives in his room. It’s all part of the routine, the back and forth that defines their television life and much more than that.


And one other thing about the hotels he stays in: “They have to have a good stream sauna. Ron and I have checked in to hotels and they didn’t have the sauna, or it wasn’t working, and we checked right out and left. We’ve gone hotel to hotel, until we’ve found the right one.

I'd always wondered what had happened to Luba. I thought she'd be a senator by now.

The Ottawa Senator employee first asked the 19-year-old male driver if he could sit in the front seat of the van, and then made lewd comments while placing his hands on the driver's shoulders, Flynn said.

Very odd story. Was he wearing something revealing?

The latest episode was too much to unpack and I need at least one more nap before attempting.
