Rock ’em sock ’em Canadian hockey icon Don Cherry recently got the axe from Hockey Night In Canada. Cherry’s an old time hockey guy. Eddie Shore. He’s also a flamboyant Canada first kind of guy. Sound familiar?

Justin Trudeau is Cherry’s opposite. An international multiculturalist. Cherry chose Veterans Day – Rememberance Day in Canada – to criticize newer arrived urban Canadians for not sporting poppy pins to honor Canada’s war dead. He says he regrets referring to them as “you people.”

Trudeau would never say “you people,” though he might say “my people.” Playing against type though, photos of him dressed in black face surfaced during the last election. He won anyway.

Maybe there’s a future for Don Cherry here in the states.

But the president’s not alone in letting people know what he thinks. James Comey wrote an op-ed for the NYT claiming Trump eats Attorney General Barr’s soul in small bites.

Maximum Security Instant Replay Interference

instant replay, kentucky Derby, Maximum Security

Maximum Security doesn’t know he finished 17th in the Kentucky Derby. He still thinks he won. But, after reviewing the instant replay for 22 minutes, track officials ruled interference and disqualified the winner for the first time in the 145 year ┬áhistory of the Run for the Roses.

The instant replay showed Mad Max drifted out of his lane and hip checked War of Will. That caused a chain reaction slowing other horses. Thus the 17th place finish for Maximum Security. He also kicked mud on the horses behind him. Country House, a 65-1 shot, was named the winner.

Trump Maximum Security Tweet

President Trump tweeted that the ruling was “politically incorrect.”

Owner Gary West appealed but was denied. Now he says he’ll sue. But Max doesn’t know anything about that either.
