Rogers Communications, now that you own the broadcast rights to NHL hockey games, I will tell you why you should keep Don Cherry on television.

Simply put, he is unforgettable.

I once spent a weekend with Grapes. I was doing promo for the Brandon Wheat Kings hockey team and we brought the man himself in to speak.

It was my job to squire him around, including to and from Winnipeg’s airport. He was fascinating and compelling.
