Total Pro Sports – It was “Military Night” in Kingston as the OHL’s Frontenacs took on the the visiting Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors. So what exactly does such an event consist of? How about Don Cherry riding around the rink in an army vehicle, and some brutally ugly jerseys that would make any list of poor sports uniforms.
Since when did a military appreciation night become a tribute to Cherry anyways?
The jerseys were meant to resemble the wild, outrageous suits Cherry has become known for wearing during his Coaches Corner segments on CBC’s Hockey Night In Canada, and they definitely drive the point home, but perhaps your typical military camouflage colors would have made much more sense under these circumstances.
However, Cherry, the fans, and players of both teams had fun with it, and each jersey worn during the game will be signed by the popular Canadian figure and auctioned off with all proceeds going to Soldier On.
For the sake of the soldiers, one can only hope there are enough individuals with poor enough taste to buy these monstrosities.
