Proud Twins Fan

12 posts in this topic

Just wanted to tell Frank Thomas congrats on #500. More than well deserved for a guy who's done it the right way......even though he's drove us Twinkie fans nuts for so many years. Also have to say that the standing O the Metrodome crowd gave Big Frank was a true class act by you(us) Twins Backers.

Almost forgot, so I have to edit.....Cudos to the guy who swapped the historic ball he caught fair and square.... with a glove..... wearing his Bartlett jersey).... for a signed bat, ball and jersey. I wonder if that would have happened in another stadium???

Way cool Jon,

Even though The Big Hurt traded uni's I still love him. His numbers speak for themselves. I guess it only makes sense that he would hit his 500th against the Twinks since he has hit 10% of all his taters against them. Very cool of the fan to give up the ball to Frank.

HEY HEY now. That's hitting below the belt. (Its prob true though, Frank should send radke a bottle of wine or something, Thome too if he ever gets there, he used to kill us when he was with the tribe.)

It is true. I believe his 500th was number 50 against the Twins.

I know! That's why I said it. I was not trying to dis the Twinks, far be it from me to dis anybody this year with the pathetic way my boys have been playing. I can crow about 2005 but not 06 or 07 so far. It was a true statement, he has hit 10% against the Twinks and yes he should send a case of bubbly to their locker room!

HIS-TO-RY!

Tough Twin loss last night on that Thames solo shot. Good game. Boring Amer Lge, but a good game.

Nyuk, nyuk.

I thought cerillo had such good numbers against clemens. He sure wasimpressive last night. I know punto's bat sucks but at least he can play defense.

      Anyfish2 - thanks for the reports. I believe it was you who had written a little summary that included a rough estimation of when the LF river busts open and muddies the Rainy.    Can you (or anyone) comment on when that's looking likely to happen? anyone know when the river cleared the Frontier landing? I think you said that happening gives a 1-to-2 week notice on the LF breakup.

      recommendation for first timers to northern Minnesota?  we need decent lodging, boat or sitontop kayak, smallmouth is our favorite but we will fish for anything that will bite artificial.  thanks in advance for any help.

      My Alaska trip fell through, so I'm thinking having never been to Minnesota that should be my destination. thinking a week in august. Probably start International Falls or Duluth. We need a resort with sit on top kayaks or aluminum boats, comfortable lodging without being plush and not ripping our heads off pricewise.  We will target Smallmouth, but if it will hit a lure I will fish for it. any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

      Went out of Stoney Point sunday morning.  FYI Watch for deer almost smoked a few on the 20 mph section coming back into the access!  There is an ice heave forming off of the rocks going straight north.  If you want to fish Paris Trench people were crossing instantly using boards.  We weren't gutsy/brave/stupid enough to cross there since we were pulling a trailer behind a four wheeler and had 3 of us with all our gear.  The ice was sketchy from access to point at the point the ice heave goes a little further away from shore and it allows you some room to avoid the point's tip.  There is open water immediately around the point tip but ice looks great if you follow the tracks and avoid huging the tip.  We couldn't find a place to cross the ice heave to get to Paris Trench so we were going to try a few spots further north since we could see a few groups set up north a ways.  About 5.5 miles north of the access the ice heave quits and you can cross it without any worries.  Since we could cross the GPS spot we wanted to fish was only 2.5 miles away and we fished there.  Out in the middle we had 26-28" of ice and barely made it through.  While fishing a plane landed on the lake and a 1/2 ton extended cab pickup came from the NE some where, it was too foggy misty to see where and we didn't see him leave.  Coming back from Stoney Point's Tip to the access was very sketchy.  Made me nervous since there was a lot of slush and water but ice held us up.  If you plan on going out next weekend you may need to find a different access, or atleast I would!  Talked to a guy who came in behind us, they crossed the ice heave at the access using boards how they did and they said it was very slow and only got two.
