Powder Burns in Ohio

From Lance Hornby's column today -

"Ken Hitchcock is a U.S. Civil War junkie who coaches a team named for Ohio's union soldiers. So he was ecstatic when the Blue Jackets asked him to help pick out an authentic cannon to "fire" a salute at Nationwide Arena every time his team comes on the ice, scores or wins. The team paid $20,000 US for an 1873 Napoleon field gun that will flash and billow smoke, while a 105-decibel blast is triggered in the rafters. "

Next headline in Columbus:

"Nationwide Arean Burns To The Ground After Rick Nash Hat-Trick."

105 decibel seems really freakin loud. I could swear that is louder than the horn's in most arenas...but Im probably wrong.

Anyways - unique idea. I like it.
