Dang, Don! Did you lose a bet?
For those of you who missed it

Don Cherry -- yes, the legendary Don Cherry -- picked the Devils to beat the Hurricanes in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Among those who took humbrage at this bit of prognostication was Carolina defenseman Mike "The Robe Warrior" Commodore. A wager ensued specifying that should Carolina dispatch New Jersey from the playoffs, that Cherry would don (no pun intended) a replica of Commodore's signature terrycloth robe and a red afro-wig for his Coach's Corner segment of the CBC TV show Hockey Night in Canada. And in the fullness of time it came to pass that the Hurricanes did indeed dismiss the infidels from East Rutherford from the post-season, and Cherry honored the wager. But since the show is only seen in Canada, here are some shamelessly pilfered video captures to document the event.

If you want to see the whole segment, a Real Video file of the broadcast is available at http://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/hnic/coach.html
