I interviewed Jim last time he was here at a charity banquet arranged by the University bball team. He's one heck of a story and classy to boot.

One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

Has anyone been to the Lids store recently?
Is this sweet cap in stock? Or only available online?

Pretty good lookin lid for sure.

I miss the Cannons. My uncle (RIP and actually my moms cousins husband) was Russ Parkers right hand man for that club. Oh the stories he told me. Great dude and miss him a ton as well. But that baseball team was so much fun and were pretty good a few years. I will forever remember when the Mariners screwed the Cannons during that championship series.....forget what year that was. Doubt Russ ever got over that reaming.

This town ain't big
this town ain't small
It's a little of both they say

Our ball club may be minor league
but at least it's triple A

Wow ... talk about timing - I was the PR Director for the Cannons for six years and just got back from wings with another old alum... we were just swapping memories of the teams amazing run in ‘98 - I almost jumped out of the press box when Roberson homered to clinch... Good times for sure!

Transplant99 - Billy was a good man knew him well worked with him with the Roughnecks too -good pals right up to end.. miss him!

That's a sweet lid.

I remember seeing Fernando Valenzuela give up a couple of gopher balls in a comeback attempt at Foothills against the Cannons.

Also recall the baby Expos. My Dad took me to dozens of those games and don't think I ever noticed what a dump we were sitting in. Joe Breeden, Dave Perez, Tex Winfield, Angel Salazar are some names I remember.

Awesome. I've been looking for a Calgary Cannons cap. So I bought two! Plus Carolina Mudcats. And Charleston Alleycats.

These guys in Edmonton sell a Cannons cap, too:

http://rossflats.ca/shop/

I like that design more, but it is lower quality.
