When it comes to Don Cherry, I am so sick of people who want to take shots at him using his age against him. He has far more mental energy than most of his slowpoke critics. It’s not the physical age that matters. It’s the ability to fire up the furnace. Cherry still can, while many of his no-name, utterly generic, utterly forgettable critics never could, never can, and never will.
It’s not about age. It’s about the capacity to inspire. He still has it. And for those critics who have never been able to walk in his shoes – “thanks for your input. You can all go back to your envy caves now and fantasize about what it would be like for an entire country to give a damn about what you have to say about anything.”
