Watching the spelling bee---WOW these kids are smart. Just learned that Kanone--means EXPERT SKIER.

Here is to all of you Kanones---or is it Kanonies????

Also to you Kanonies wanabeees


Did a search of the Epic site. One use of the word....giving praise to "bob" who helped a skier do better. Obviously the proper use.

Some might say you need "cahoonees" to be a konone. I am sure I would be asked to sit down in the spelling bee.

FYI, Kanone means cannon in German, the plural is Kanonen. It is a term used for a heavy hitter in many sports, including skiing.
