100-year-old Cannon Gets a Complete Makeover from Mile High Powder Coating
The 100-year-old cannon fired at the beginning and end of every football game is one of the Colorado State University’s (CSU) oldest and loudest traditions. The cannon, amicably dubbed “Comatose Cannon,” has been in operation since 1918, when it was built by the French for use in World War I. It was actively in use until after World War II when it was updated for modern warfare. Comatose finally found its way home to CSU in 1952 and has been the war cry for the Rams ever since.
Comatose has been through it all, and we are excited to give it a fresh, new look.
Our tested powder coating is the perfect option for sprucing up this 100-year-old hero. The powder coating will not only add visual appeal to the cannon, but also protect it from corrosion, heat, scratches, and extreme weather conditions. We are excited to restore this hardened veteran so that it can continue leading the Rams to victory for another 100 years.
