From a media release:

WRATH OF GRAPES: THE DON CHERRY STORY II

  • CHERRY MOVES FROM COACH TO COMMENTATOR IN A TWO-PART TELEVISION EVENT ON CBC-TV MARCH 4 & 11 at 8 P.M. (8:30 NT)

CBC Television proudly presents WRATH OF GRAPES: THE DON CHERRY STORY II – the follow-up to the highly successful Keep Your Head Up Kid: The Don Cherry Story– in two parts on March 4 and 11 at 8 p.m. (8:30 NT).

WRATH OF GRAPES: THE DON CHERRY STORY II tells the story of Cherry’s later years and his evolution into one of Canada’s cultural media icons, with Jared Keeso reprising his Gemini Award-winning performance as the host of Coach’s Corner.  The first part of the Cherry story drew 1.3 million viewers in 2010.   

No one thought the newly-unemployed coach of the Colorado Rockies would last more than a few weeks as a CBC commentator in 1980, never mind eventually be voted number seven on the all-time list of great Canadians. 

WRATH OF GRAPES: THE DON CHERRY STORY II uncovers who Don Cherry really is, the events that shape his past and the key moments in his life that allow him to continue to stay relevant to people today. More than just a broadcaster, Don is controversial, populist, politically involved, a supporter of the troops, and a figure who stirs up emotions of all kinds everywhere he goes.  

WRATH OF GRAPES: THE DON CHERRY STORY II will explore the impact Don’s outspokenness has had on his Coach’s Corner platform, and the attempts that have been made to curb his opinionated nature.

  1. I have been a hockey fan since 1949 when I sat at my grandparents listening to Hockey Night in Canada – they were French and guess who I had to root for? But now I’m a die hard Canuck fan and have been so since 1970 (and before in the WHL). More than that I think Don Cherry is wonderful and I love listening to his rants on any subject. And I wish the NHL would listen to him about elbow pads and shoulder ads – they’re like ammunition – kill somebody some day – soften them down. Good enough for Gordie Howe in his prime and he never seriously injured anyone, nor did Bobby Orr.
