CannonFest 2011, TOMORROW

CannonFest 2011 is tomorrow at 2:00pm. I could not be more ready to get back to following my favorite sport and team in the world, free of tattoo scandals, wildly huge fan bases (with mentally handicapped owners, Cincinnati Bengals anyone?), and all the other drama seemingly spreading like an epidemic through the sports world.

Hockey has always been a great escape from the worries of my job and the real world since I first got into the sport, and for the last few months I have certainly been missing it.

Of course, it’s impossible to not be excited with this summer’s acquisitions of Jeff Carter and James Wisniewski, and don’t get me wrong, I am really looking forward to seeing what they can do for the Blue Jackets. But watching the draft, trades, and free agency has still left a certain something missing.

The social aspect of being a hockey fan, and especially a Blue Jackets fan, is what makes this fun. Beyond the goals scored, the big hits, and lame fights (ahem, Jared Boll), the camaraderie makes this worth being a part of and sharing with those around you.

Kudos to the organizers of Cannonfest 2011 for what will surely be another great afternoon in the middle of August! Looking forward to seeing all of you tomorrow at CannonFest.
