...I don't know how this version and occasion couldn't have inspired the Leafs to win their last game against the lowly BlackHawks as they closed Maple Leaf Gardens....they should have taken Sundin's "C" away following that performance

I've still got the VHS video of Anne singing at centre ice somewhere here...don't know why this guy posted audio only (and the Ontario flag only, lol)

eh? lol...yes, stellar, and imo, the high moment of the 4 hour event

i liked the added touch when they had Paul Morris (we miss him) do the Last Minute call...but there was actually 90 seconds to go...maybe that's why, after so many decades, he was let go, lol

don't know if you get to see Don Cherry when you watch Habs games but nice closing to coach's corner last night where a wonderful short taped clip showed Don urging folks to support vets during November

also, check out JP Cormier's 'Afghanistan' tune on youtube, nice

I watch Don on "Coach's Corner" every Saturday Night that Im at home. I will watch the Habs on RDS, but switch to CBC for that first period intermission. Yes I did see it last night. Don't always agree w/ Cherry, but he has a good heart.

Johhny Rivers greatest hits with the live versions is a great disc to keep you awake, when you're driving late at night. With Memphis, Maybelline, Secret Agent Man, Mountain of Love etc.

I missed Cherry last week but heard he went over the top (if there is such a thing) about the troops...Harry's uncle is now back and knew about the Afghanistan tune...funny, he brought pearls from Dubai and sent him a 'medal' he could show at skool...not surprisingly, Harry put on the pearls, lol...char has posted the video in case any missed it, nice work

ps) what happened to the Habs last week vs Toronto, jessi? lol

They lost.... badly !

Again the other night against the Bruins. Coach Guy Carbonneau isn't to please with his club as of late. Carey Price gives out a lot of fluke goals, no defence help. They will regroup as they always do...

Tonight at The Bell Centre facing The Flyers... Halak in goal !

well, i thought they were Cup faves...great start otherwise...i remember Habs being all Frenchmen in the 70s when they used to beat up on the Leafs and others...great powerplay and speed....now they are all Russians, no? lol

Some Russians for sure, as other teams have as well. Great show at The Air Canada Centre last Saturday for the veterans. Better than the game itself. Mind you I dont hate the Leafs, they are my # 2 for obvious reasons... "You Got love The Leafs." ~gl~

Cherry always gets misty when he talks of the military..
nice montages of the troops we've lost in Afghanistan and then the WW2 vets coming out on the ice for the anthem and meeting the new inductees into the HHOF .. lovely.
crazy game tho..

Grapes always gets misty is probably the word, he gets all choked up and finally he cant speak anymore about the troops.

But hockey talk hey that's another thing... I never miss Coach's Corner.
