I hear that "canonball" Jones has sold his mansion in Wisconsin and told his entire staff of maids secretaries ect to be prepared for a big move.
Rumor has it he is opening a year round snorkeling, sunbathing and sea shell collecting school in the virgin islands. Will still be putting his other clinics on throughout north America.

I hear he will be in Johnsonville, WI during Brat Days in August giving a clinic on competitive eating.
His star student joey chestnut just won another Hot dog eating contest. Word from legend Jones is that "Joey Chestnut,
Joseph Christian "Jaws" Chestnut is an American competitive eater. The 6-foot-tall, 218-pound engineering student is currently ranked first in the world by the International Federation of Competitive Eating." He added " with my help, what I did for Joey I can do for you"
The canonball is an amazing talent...

oh my, i went to florence hs, no way the school can go on without him, he was the backbone of every sport in the school. he not only coached kids on all the teams but also was key in helping all the coaches fiqure things out. he also was the clear leader of the school, he will be missed. hope his tattoo shop goes good on the island.Hopefully he will still come back and put on his clinics.

I heard the big plan is to combine the tattoo shop with an Olympic training site, something about coaching the Jamaican bob sled team and bring back some glory to the island

The legend will be home in time to get the cross country football and volleyball teams started and then it is off to the island. Our coaches will be lost without Coach Cannonball leading the charge.

Cannonball was in london at the olympics, he was real busy working with the divers, basketball teams,
swimmers, water polo teams, gymnasts, handball, bikers, rowers, judo and boxing teams, archers, and well as the horsetrainers and in his free time he was helping with security in the village. when he emailed me he was hoping to have helped over 80 medal winners at these games.we would only have bronze medalists without the legend being at the games

Anyone been in touch with the legend? The green bay press wrote in todays sports section that Packer coach Mike McCarthy was having problems with installing Jones patented Offense, and has not been able to get in touch with MJ. General Manager has devoted the past week trying to locate coach Jones, the only man who can save the packers Super Bowl run this year! If you are true packer fans, we need to find the Canonball and fast!

So where in the world is the Mike Jones?

The man is being begged to return to FHS and be an elementary principle/varsity girls coach. Been told he will have free reign to use all facilities for his clinics, keep your fingers crossed folks, he may be back in town for his annual pre forth of july fireworks launching clinic and safety demo.
