Don Cherry blood suit

CBC hockey analyst Don Cherry has long been known for his outrageous outfits, but he perhaps took it to a whole new level Saturday during their coverage of the Montreal Canadiens-New York Rangers game. His outfit this time around? A white suit that looked covered with blood spatter. Of course, this created plenty of Twitter fodder.

One of the best managed to work in topical CBC/Sportsnet personnel changes:

And someone else got even more topical:

If you would like to obtain this look yourself, you can probably do so with a Dexter or American Psycho costume. (Heck, that may be where Cherry got it; this one looks pretty close.) We always knew he was a proponent of blood, guts, and fighting, but still, this is going a bit far.

Did Cherry think he was on a police procedural or something? Hopefully he didn’t sneak into the Canadiens’ dressing room and injure them all before the game. If so, that might have had something to do with their 3-1 loss that eliminated them from the playoffs. In any case, he certainly made us all laugh.
