Don Cherry: Canadian athletes need more help if they're going to win medals

"You want me to sit here and say we're doing great? I think we're doing awful. God love our athletes, but how many medals have we got?" Cherry said. "It's ridiculous. Countries that we're sending care packages to are beating us in the gold. It's ridiculous."

This is why I love Don Cherry. The most patriotic, straight-up Canadian in the world. I can't wait for Hockey Night in Canada on CBC, especially Coach's Corner with Don Cherry and Ron McLean.
