Sharp Dressed Man – EJ Hradek

Well, our beloved NHL Live! Has returned. Today, EJ Hradek wore a white jacket and shirt and looked stunning. 🙂 It was funny how that became the topic of conversation for a while on the show today. He was, indeed, a sharp dressed man today.

And, Don LaGreca has obviously lost a lot of weight. Good for him. 🙂 I wonder if he used Jenny Craig? (Just kidding).

Anyways, speaking of well dressed men…I am reminded of that ZZ Top song. It’s a double whammy. Back when Don Cherry (aka “Grapes”) had his tv show, it would start with a video of him showing his cuff links, rings, and outfits. Very sharp. And, the video would include “Sharp Dressed Man”. That was always such a pleasure to see and hear.

So, every time I hear “Sharp Dressed Man” I think of both hockey and Don Cherry. It can’t get much better than that. 🙂

Note: I remember when I first saw Don Cherry’s show. It was on the CBC right before Saturday’s Hockey Night in Canada game. I thought he was so arrogant. He remember him telling his guests to keep quiet since “It’s my show and what I say goes!” Or…”I don’t care what you have to say!” Anyways, I noticed how his guests would just chuckle and go along with it. Or, they would start to give him feedback that made for great entertainment. Soon, he grew on me. 🙂

I knew I was a Don Cherry convert when one of my friends told me she had just watched his show and hated him. She couldn’t stand his arrogance. “He’s just so hung up on himself!” she said. I found myself laughing and saying, “Yeah, I know. He can come across like that. Just watch him a couple more times and he’ll grow on you.” Sure enough, two months later my friend came to me and told me how she got a kick out of listening to Grapes.

🙂
