I am sure by now that everyone has heard of Money on the Board. If you haven’t you really need to check it out. I have been very impressed with how Blue Jackets fans have come together to donate money, time, and even blood if our beloved Blue Jackets win this evening.

I am Craig Layne, owner and operator here at FireTheCannon.com. I am located in Southern Ohio (right across the river from West Virginia).

So without further blabbering from me, onto the preview. First [...]December 1st, 2010 | Craig Layne | 0 comments | Continued
Let the grudge match begin. Tonight’s game is much more than the Jackets vs the Wings. It is Ohio vs Michigan, Red vs Blue, an all out grudge match. Not to mention the incident that happened on Friday involving Umberger and Mike Modano. If you didn’t know, Modano had some surgery yesterday to repair a [...]November 28th, 2010 | Craig Layne | 0 comments | Continued
