That’s not scripted. That’s the heart of a man, verbalized by the consummate professional human being, Ron MacLean.
Ron’s well thought out, respectful dissertation on what happened, how he let people (including Don and apparently, Bobby Orr somehow) down and what’s next for the segment.
I’ve written, read and watched as you have. I know Ron and he is exactly what you think he is after watching this segment.
Not just sorry but sorry for the entire mess but he’s sorry for the ripple effect and inconvenience to people who loved the segment.
Sportsnet says they’re taking some time to figure out what’s next for the ‘Coach’s Corner’ timeslot.
I say bring Strombo back for a weekly update into his new projects like ‘LAUDANUM’. A movie about Drugs and big belly buttons starring Strombo himself.
Or maybe a live version of ‘Swap Shop’ where Canadians can call into Ron with gently used hockey gear and farm equipment.
Listen, there are natural beginnings and endings to everything. 40 years on a TV program is about 30 years longer than most.
It was a great run. I loved Ron and Don. I still love em both. You can too.
Bring on the Japanese game show themed intermission if you’re looking for a ‘can’t miss’ thing.
You’re welcome, CANADA.
