It was the late Rodney Dangerfield who once quipped, “Canada, I love it. Why do Canadians do it doggy style? That way, they can both watch the hockey game.” There won’t be any doggy style happening in the Great White North this spring. Not in front of Don Cherry, anyway.

Or rather, not in front of Don Cherry on the TV set.
