Fires The Cannon

Shocker here, for one of those rare posts in which I type in first person…

For the past two seasons, I’ve written occasional stories for I will continue to do so this season.

Last season, I also did some freelance work for, the #1 St. Louis Blues blog on the web. That relationship has ended, since the IceMen and Blues are no longer affiliated.

Now, since the IceMen have renewed their affiliation with the Columbus Blue Jackets, another blog relationship has begun.

I am proud to announce that throughout the 2013-14 season (and hopefully during subsequent seasons as well if the affiliation continues), I will be providing monthly updates for, the #1 Blue Jackets blog and one of’s sister blogs in the SB Nation network!

The Cannon is so named because Nationwide Arena, home of the Blue Jackets, actually has a cannon inside. (The blog’s slogan is “We have a cannon in our rink. You don’t.”) The cannon is “fired” every time the Blue Jackets score a goal or celebrate a victory.

My updates for The Cannon will focus primarily on the players under contract to Columbus and Springfield who have been assigned to Evansville, but I will also keep Blue Jackets fans abreast of the general happenings with the IceMen.

My debut article is now online. Some of it may seem a bit familiar if you remember reading my debut on last season, but there’s a fair bit of new stuff there too. The story introduces the Cannon readers to Evansville and the IceMen, and provides a season outlook for their ECHL affiliate. Please click the logo below to check it out!
