Lloydminister Bobcats wear special Don Cherry uniform

Just as their city straddles the Alberta-Saskatchewan border, the Lloydminster Bobcats' Don Cherry uniform straddles the line between garish and glorious.

The Alberta Junior Hockey League team is hosting CBC's Hockey Night in Canada on Saturday as part of Hockey Day In Canada. The festivities will be distinguished about appropriately festive finery, with the Bobcats dressed to the nines in a jersey patterned after one of Cherry's distinctive blazers. The special touches include a flower on the left lapel, which is why captain Grant Baker (second from right) has his 'C' on the right side.

Lloydminster's and visiting Sherwood Park's play-by-play announcers might have trouble reading the arm numbers, but other than that, pretty awesome.

Don Cherry and host Ron MacLean also get a commemorative jersey as a keepsake.
