I use my fellow Ottawan's, Alanis Morrisette's, loose definition of the word ironic so forgive me grammar freaks if I gets this wrong.
This is what I find ironic. According to an article in The Kingston Whig-Standard, one of the best dog pee and pooh catchers in the country, Don Cherry, he who ranted against women in the locker room days before the playoffs began this year, was the first coach in the NHL to allow women, in this case woman, Robin Herman of The New York Times, in the locker room. Happened during the '75 All-Star game in MTL.
Actions speak louder than words, doncha think?
