TORONTO - Happy Birthday, Grapes.
“I am not much into celebrating this one,” Don Cherry said recently. “I just don’t think it’s that big a deal. A lot of people turn 80 and are working and doing things. I am not different.”
He certainly didn’t want any part of a public birthday celebration — although he knows there are some close to him who were looking for some way to mark his becoming an octogenarian on Wednesday.
“I appreciate it but I just don’t feel right about it,” he said.
His focus is on Canada winning the gold medal in hockey and a lot of other sports.
