I do not recall being the very first cannon poster. I'll accept the honor and all the accolades though.

Emailing the games isn't going to be much fun anymore due to everyone going back to FSN, so we might need to try and find other means of advertisement.

I could always design some Cannon shirts, people could wear them around Columbus to spread the word..

How delightful. A big, self-referential, join internet hands and sing in unison, circle jerk thread to keep all the discussion about the cannon in. Perfect.

I just got done listening to the tape of the Doug MacLean show. I LMAO when the cannon thing was mentioned again but here is my opinion. I think Doug is getting annoyed with the cannon questions now. In the beginning he kind of laughed it off, then recently he seemed receptive to the idea, even a little intrigued. Today he was saying "Is this another cannon question?" I say give it rest for a while, let the PR guy look into and don't piss Doug off or it may never happen. I actually like the idea in a limited capacity but wonder if it can happen in an indoor arena that is geared to a family type atmosphere (ie: the children).

Nothing builds a team more than everyone loathing the same guy (just ask Herb Brooks - I'd do it myself but I don't have a ouija board) so I won't clarify that I'm not a hater either.

What? I did what in that post?

D'oh.

Damn.

Yeah, just funning you man.

I have to admit, the Cannon thing is just really funny.
Not only the idea of having one, but the fact that a bunch of you guys got Doug and the broadcasters talking about it a lot, well, it's just damn entertaining!

This is a good thread Jf. I had forgotten all those links. Fun to read.

Shouldn't CBJslash get an award, or a special moniker next to his screenname? And why is he not sure he's the originator of the idea? Did someone else mention it before the summer?

Basically a bunch of us on here have organized a little group and we're just spamming the hell out of Doug, the broadcast team, and basically anyone affiliated with the Jackets to try and get the idea of putting a 'Cannon in Nationwide with two guys wearing civil war blue jackets to shoot it off after every goal. Kind of a thing to push the civil war theme of the team a little more. Since 99% of the world seems to think we are named after a made up breed of Bee.

I only link this because I was questioning my sanity. It doesnt matter who came up with the idea, only that it happens.

http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?p...on#post6032819

check out post 1541 in the II, i think that was the birth of the idea, its dated a day before JF made the "Ideas for Improving the CBJ Fan Experience/Promotion in/out of the Nationwide" thread

whew, not insane

I find all the "cannon" and "cat" discussion to be quite tiresome....but tying it all together in one addictive game is freakin great!

BTW, shoot all the way low (10 degrees) at full power....Did I mention that it is addictive?
