Don Cherry & Coach's Corner '13 Version | Part III

don cherry during the 5th intermission talked about using amphetamines (speed) as a player once and how it was prevalent at the time.

his exact terminology was "beddies", by which i'm pretty sure he meant "bennies", and he talked about how he thought he could still go 2 hours after a double OT game, confirming to me that he was talking about amphetamines.

Not a surprise, have heard it was common in baseball, you'd think doin it 82 or 160 times would make a guys heart explode though, I have heard that something irregular was found with Cherepanov and there was some suspicion it may have been connected with his death.

Edit:mod feel free to delete if its considered libelous

No, he said "bennies."

Don should be thanked for his honesty.You could see Mclean didn'-t want to talk about it.Those type of pills were rampant in the sixty'-s and uppers are rampant in today'-s hockey.Never thought Don would admit it but it was known many players had taken at that era

I thought i heard beddies, though bennies makes more sense since it refers to this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benzedrine

regardless, the point still stands.

He was simply alluding to why the Bruins looked so good in OT.

In the trucking industry bennies are called "high speed chicken feed". You're a moron if you take the stuff for a lot of reasons.

Pretty widespread practice at the time, not much of a surprise.

Yes. I guess you've never heard the term before? You must be a young 'un. Back in the 50s thru the early 70s at least, everyone knew what a bennie was.

In the 90s players were popping sudafed like tic tacs until the league cracked down on it. They're probably doing something else today for the same effect.

It would be pretty naive to think players arent using some sort of PED. Steroid use is probably common, and since they are young millionaires many probably use party drugs etc.

Meh, you reach a certain age and it becomes charming somehow.

I thought he was talking about benzodiazepines so that you are able to stay clam and relaxed during the OT and then be able to sleep afterward...
