    HHS always has the "Let's play baseball" chant.

    Well the '05-'10 time period is admittedly a pretty thin stretch for my attending Cov Cath basketball games, so I'll definitely defer to you gents as far as what the attendance was like at that point.

    They rolled the canon over to Park Hills and put it in a backyard on Old State Road for a football game. I don't see it being that much of a stretch to imagine them showing up with a state championship trophy.

    Placing the cannon in a back yard in Park Hills was the work of a creative group of parents.

    Allowing kids to take a state championship trophy to Park Hills would require the consent of Brian Robinson and/or Dale. Neither of which I can see doing that.

    Not to mention, the cannon was privately owned - not property of HHS.
