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.

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!

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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
