This Saturday the Lloydminster Bobcats of the Alberta Junior Hockey League are going to play host to CBC's Hockey Night in Canada to celebrate Hockey Day in Canada. On Friday there will be an outdoor game for alumni and Saturday will feature an NHL alumni game outdoors before the Bobcats take on the Sherwood Park Crusaders.
That game will be shown on CBC so the Bobcats figures they better dress the part. How do you dress up for Hockey Night in Canada festivities? By wearing special Don Cherry uniforms, of course.
These uniforms, as tweeted by the CBC's Elliotte Friedman, are so hideous and so glorious all at the same time.

Grapes will be so proud. Heck, he'll probably do his best to make a matching suit if he doesn't have one already (we know he has plaid). That's a look he'd be happy to wear.
The jersey top is great but what I think really makes it is the black pants to complete the suit. Well that and the flower on the left lapel as well, those are the finishing touches.
