June 14/08 Cannons take over least worst in NSMBA
Sweep Reds 9-0 and 6-1. Hey kids!
Are you 9 or under and an aspiring "baseball pitcher?"
Well now you too can learn from Dave 'the professor' Firbank
, just like the 9 year olds at the recent pitching clinic at Laroy Watt field. If you weren't there, here's a WORD FOR WORD excerpt of what you missed. Please, no dumbfounded expressions:
"Traditionally the 2 seam fastball is gripped like so, thus reducing friction imparted from the digits of the hand unto the laced spheroid and therefore increasing the rotational velocity of said ball, this, coupled with adequate linear velocity and with the alignment of the seams, creates unbalanced forces on either side, generating, in layman's terms, "a wind drag" heretofore altering it's course, mid trajectory. I'll be fielding any relevant questions for the next 35 seconds until it's time to move on to the next topic, we have a lot of material to cover today."
June 2/08 The plight of the lowly A's
A's always guaranteed to start the year in first place
The Cannons take on the first place (alphabetically) A's this Thursday, June 5th at 7pm at Parkgate field. Howe Sound will have their hands full with the upstart A's who are coming off a franchise best one game winning streak after shutting out the snowman-that-had-a-accident-on-himself Pirates 1-0 this past Saturday.
The game should be a classic as the only other team to finish in last place in the past 4 years has been Howe Sound and prior to Saturday the only A's victory had come against, of course, Howe Sound. May 8/08Stilley in tha house
In an exchange of empty threats and insults that sounded like they came directly from the writers of Bad Boys 2, Drew Stilley has declared gang war on the Cannons. Drew, who hails from somewhere that has it's own dialect of English, is a 6 foot 8 former Florida State University pitcher who has taken offence to having his English corrected and decided to take his services elsewhere. It is unsure where the self proclaimed 'baddest 'motherf*#kah who evah thru a ball at yo head' will end up but it certainly won't be the Cannons. Squamish has too much class for that!

Yo Yo hold up sluts!

By the way he's 6'8" but hung like a 7 footer!April 27/08Laroy Watt gets a facelift
The Howe Sound Cannons, along with generous donations of time and materials from Spectrum Landscaping and Alpine Paving, came together this past weekend and gave Laroy Watt a much needed makeover. "We now have a pitchers mound AND a clean dugout," said an unidentified source. "Our pitching staff is usually only good for 12 innings in a day so hopefully this new mound will help with that." he said. In just two days of hard work, the field was brought up to the strict NSMBA standards. Even more exciting, the Cannons can now lay claim to the 3rd nicest field in the entire league! "It was a lot harder work than it looks," he said, "those district workers sure do make it look easy!" August 18/072007 Champions!!! August 17/07Player of the WeekJuly 10/08Cheeseburger

Well we only played one game.May 29/08KRAZ BIG
. KRAZ POUND 2 BY 4 ON GROUND AND SCARE FRENCHMAN.May 22/08Jeremy Galley
Some might say passing out in a ditch and giving up 12 earned runs the following morning would automatically make Alex Wis7niki the player of the week, but on the other hand, Galley gave up one run in 7 innings against the Western Canadian Champion Nanaimo Coal Miners, pitched 17 innings over 3 days with 2 wins and won the 2008 Doug Conn Memorial Tournament MVP.May 15/08Cheeseburger
2 homeruns, a double, 97 rbi's, zero practice.May 9/08Dave Firbank
