Selected tweets from the Hockey Night in Canada icon (@CoachsCornerCBC):

"When I am out, people always say, 'With the lockout you must have a lot of time on your hands.' But it's the opposite. Since I am not busy ... People call and ask me to do stuff. I'm busier than I ever was!"

"I went to see Gordon Lightfoot on opening night at Massey Hall. I never go to shows but I just had to see Lightfoot. He was a beauty!"

To which, Jesse Spector of The Sporting News responded via Twitter: "Don Cherry tweeting about Gordon Lightfoot is maple syrup, a beaver, and a French curse word away from being the most Canadian thing ever."
