Falsely accused of living in a mansion, Don Cherry brags about how humble he is
The trouble started when Ritchies Auctioneers claimed in a press release, apparently falsely, that an opulent home it plans to sell—a 10,500-square-foot Mississauga mansion with a tennis court and a pool—was formerly Cherry’s abode. The famed hockey commentator, who somehow maintains an everyman image despite a job in broadcasting and a wardrobe that Imelda Marcos might find a bit excessive, was predictably incensed. “I still drive a car from 1983,” he told the Sun, in an attempt to prove his average-slob bona fides. “The chair I am sitting in right now was bought in 1964 when I was playing in the American Hockey League for Rochester.” Donald S. Cherry: he lives in squalor, just like everybody else.
