Don Cherry has become a broadcasting legend, garnering millions of fans around the world with his “Coach’s Corner” segment on Hockey Night in Canada. For over a decade, Cherry also hosted the TV show Grapevine, which brought viewers up close and personal with the biggest names in sports.
Don was the interviewer and his son, Tim, produced the show. And no one in the sports world, from hockey players to boxers to curlers to umpires, turned down an invitation to appear on it. It was on that show that Don formed some of his fondest memories from his many years in the biz, and, at last, in Don Cherry’s Sports Heroes, he gives u behind-the-scenes access to some of his most fascinating and revealing interviews with the all-time greats.
Don brings his signature candour and sizzling humour to these interviews and stories. In these pages you’ll find epic accounts of hockey greats Maurice “Rocket” Richard, Wayne Gretzky, Bobby Orr and Gordie Howe, to name a few, and since Grapevine TV was the place to be in the sports word, you can revel in some unforgettable stories about the players in other fields, too.
Don Cherry shares with the world tales that only a true insider could know. You won’t be disappointed.
