Hockey Night in Canada
Sam Earle will host this show someday.
Don Cherry's getting up there in years and Sam is one of the largest Canadian hams of his generation, as anyone who's seen his Twitter will know. So what if he'll never play or coach pro hockey? He knows the rules and can put on a show. And who else can you imagine in those costumes?
  • My older brother and him used to play pee-wee hockey together, so he at least know the bare minimum.

Don Cherry is retained by CBC to serve as a right-wing commentator.
But they, for reasons editorial or personal, prefer him to remain a hockey related personality, regardless of how many non-hockey digressions he makes on Coach's Corner, rather than see him rub shoulders with the more moderate personalities seen on, say, the At Issue Panel
