Don Cherry swears on live TV

6 Mar

During the “Coach’s Corner” segment in the first intermission of Saturday’s Leafs/Blackhawks game, CBC analyst Don Cherry uttered the word “chickensh-t” on live TV.

The term was used to describe a trip made by Ville Leino on Thursday night, when the Philadelphia Flyers hosted Toronto. Leino was racing with Leafs’ defenseman Luke Schenn, and in an attempt to avoid an icing call, reached out his stick and tripped Schenn.

Just hours earlier, ESPN college hoops analyst and former coach Bob Knight – forgetting that his microphone was still turned on – derided the Baylor men’s basketball team for playing “chickensh-t defense” on a pregame segment of ESPN College Gameday. Moments later, ESPN apologized.

This is not the first time for Cherry. On May 2, 2009, he “dropped an F-bomb” in a segment after a playoff game between Chicago and the Vancouver Canucks.

UPDATE at 9:59 p.m. 03/05/11:

While CBC has not commented, Cherry’s slip of the tongue has been edited out of the clip on the CBC website.
