To Canon or the practice of Canoning is associated with the specific and highly regarded skill of hitting or cannoning
a ball, while running at full speed. The ball would preferably be moving at a rate of knots
at the time, however in exceptional cases (Alex, free kick
, Chelsea vs Liverpool) a static ball is allowed.
The Canon is a underused art in most professional sport, however it is slowly being reintroduced by purists of the game, it is now most commonly found in hockey at it highest level. Hockey allows the ball to be hit in a constantly rising trajectory until it is stopped only by the net.
Jesus Christ, he's just unleashed a Canon
