Here come the surging Cards Geno should be a good show... I'll watch em today and Sunday. Saw Ned Yost's interview yesterday after the sweep, he's ran out of things to say to get the brew crew to turn it around. grin.gif

CNY,

I thought you would be "chirping in" any day now. Is there room on the big red bird bandwagon for a poor misguided Pale Hose fan who spends his day drooling and watching two year old replays of Scotty Pods tater?

Did I mention that my two favorite teams are the White Sox...AND WHO EVER IS PLAYING THE CUBS!

GO CARDS!

Did you see this today..Alot of money his way..

Cubs ace Carlos Zambrano has agreed to a five-year, $91.5-million contract extension to remain with Chicago, SI.com has confirmed.

Zambrano will receive a sixth-year option for $19.25 million as part of the deal. A source told SI.com the contract includes a complete no-trade clause.

"chirping" - Good one Windy wink.gif Well if history show's the Cardinals are true to form with keeping it close or within reach and when they need to turn it on they have resiliency (starting pitching) to get it done. Guess the team want's LaRussa's next deal to be a long one. Come on aboard Windy! After all the crap we been through this year with LaRussa's DUI, injury (Carp.) and Josh Hancock's untimely depth only the Cardinals can weather such a storm reference Darryl Kile. Ankiel, what a story... Mulder should be back in early September, wow.. I never say never anymore, Spinner straightened me out on that one...

CNY Tim,

Cards are on fire lately, and even without Carp they have put the charge on...lotta games still to be played though.

I am ready for our weekend battle. Hope it's a good one.

Here's hoping Windy jinxes your Cards.

Yeah, Windy, Scotty Pods....what has he done for you lately?

Over here on the N Side, we are continuing to overpay our pitchers (Z gets 90 Million and he only wins 60% of the time).

I'm with you on that, salaries are getting outrageous in baseball and small market teams will not be able to compete.

Wild,

It is getting tough for the "big" market teams to compete. Pretty soon it is going to be the RSNY league...Red Sox/New York league!!!

Just in case anyone was wondering, I also called Ward's slam on Sat.

I'm on such a roll, I think I'll just call one for whoever is at the plate from now on.

This is almost scary Geno. Could you please post some of your Carnak predictions before the game so we can all call a Bookie. grin.gif

God called the rain out. HE wants the cards to play 35 games in 34 days, (check the schedule) and for the Cards to miss Psycho on the make-up date. This all equals the BrewCrew winning the div by 1 game. That's why it was rained out and something to do with a billygoat.

Yeah, but you knew I would be the first one in with the wise-en-heimer response, right? Nice come back last night. Could the Cubbies do it? They sure have the odds hugely stacked in their favor. Their remaining opponents for this season are 61 games under .500 combined. They should walk into the playoffs. Only a monumental meltdown could prevent the Cubs from getting into the playoffs, right Geno?

Say it with me, everybody........

BARTMAN!

      Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      We have had a great week of fishing with a few showers and strong winds.

      Up in Canada, jigging on reefs and underwater humps are producing the best in 22-28 ft. with gold, pink and orange jigs. Pulling spinners is also an option on reefs in 22-24 ft of water.

      In Minnesota, walleyes and perch have been caught pulling spinners in 18-28 ft. West of Four Blocks, East of Crow Duck and East of Garden Islands, with black and gold being the most effective.

      On both sides, muskies have been aggressive when throwing buck tails and top waters on rock reefs.  The algae bloom has slowly begun to pick up, however, fish are still visible.

      We hope to see you soon!

      Thanks Del, my son and some friends are coming up this weekend for water sports fun!!

      I have had very good success the past few days using my standard lindy/1/2 crawler rigs. All fish were caught in sand/rock transition areas in 16' to 24' depths. Mornings were best from 8:00am to noon. Key factors were to look for pods of fish before even dropping a line! Some fish would bite and some would not. I did not spend much time on pods that would not bite! 2 passes and I was gone if we did not get a fish! Found many fish in spots that I have not fished all summer! Dumb ones I guess! Still tasted the same though! Cliff

      I hunt these WMA's routinely. It's not as bad as they say. Most of the time you're fine but you have to be prepared to have your hunt completely ruined and be able to laugh it off and move on. The land belongs to all of us. That said, if someone actually shot at a squirrel in a tree I'm sitting in, I might be tempted to shoot back.(kidding!)  Hard to imagine that really happened! I would say 75% of the time you have these places to yourself. It helps to pick areas that are a little harder to walk into.

      I'd love to do this. I've never hunted them as we didn't have any where I'm from. Do you know if this opportunity is for a wild pheasant or a pen raised bird?

      Tough weekend fishing for me.  Caught only 5 walleyes.  I didn't see anybody else find a good bite around me.  I couldn't keep the crayfish and perch off my crawler.  I must have caught 20 crayfish and 10 perch for every walleye I caught.

      Youth ages 12 to 15 can apply to hunt waterfowl under the guidance of experienced mentors on Minnesota Youth Waterfowl Day on Saturday, Sept. 9.  “Helping a kid learn to hunt is a great way to share your skills and show what the outdoors have to offer,” said Mike Kurre, mentoring program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Ducks Unlimited, the U.S. National Wildlife Service, Minnesota Horse & Hunt Club, the Fox Lake Conservation League, the DNR and others have teamed up to offer the hunts, which will take place in four areas:     Southern Twin Cities metro area locations.     Sherburn private land between Fairmont and Windom.     Private land in Fergus Falls.     Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge near Zimmerman and Princeton. Application forms must be received at the DNR central office by Friday, Aug. 18. Applicants will be drawn in a lottery if a hunt is oversubscribed, with preference given to novice hunters. Successful applicants will be notified as soon as possible and must attend an orientation on Friday, Sept. 8, in the location for which they were chosen. Applications and more details about the hunt are available online at mndnr.gov/discover and by contacting Kurre at 651-259-5193 or michael.kurre@state.mn.us. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Youth and families can apply through Monday, Aug. 21, to learn how to hunt pheasants with experienced hunters in October.  “These hunts can be the building blocks for a lifetime of rich experiences in the field,” said Mike Kurre, mentoring program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “Find out about equipment and skills you need to have safe and rewarding hunts.” Youth must be 12-17 years old as of the date of their hunt, have earned a firearms safety certificate and possess a small game license if required. Youth must have a parent, guardian or adult authorized by a parent or guardian accompany them as a mentor, without a firearm. The adult must also attend with the youth during the pre-hunt orientation. In the family hunt, all participants can hunt, but they need to be 12 and older, have little to no pheasant hunting experience, and have the appropriate safety certificate, stamp and license. The hunts are provided through Pheasants Forever and the DNR. Applications and more details about the hunt are available online at mndnr.gov/discover by contacting Kurre at 651-259-5193 or michael.kurre@state.mn.us. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Youth can apply to hunt deer in select state parks and other refuge areas during 16 special deer hunts in October and November.  “These special hunts provide the opportunity for parents or other adult mentors to go afield with youth to hunt deer,” said Mike Kurre, Department of Natural Resources mentoring coordinator. “Deer hunting can be an extremely positive experience for youth.” Youth have through Friday, Aug. 18, to apply for the hunts. Of the 16 special hunts, 14 are firearms hunts for youth ages 12 to 15, and two are archery hunts for youth ages 12 to 17. Participation in other deer hunting seasons remains an option for youth who take part in the special youth deer hunts, but any deer harvested count against the youth’s season bag limit. An adult parent, guardian or mentor must accompany the youth at all times while hunting, but only the youth may hunt. Both youth and mentor must attend a mandatory pre-hunt orientation. A limited number of either-sex permits are available for each hunt. However, for the hunts in Buffalo River, Camden and Lake Shetek state parks youth need to harvest an antlerless deer before getting a permit to harvest a buck. Youth must apply for the hunt of his or her choice, which can be done anywhere DNR licenses are sold, at the DNR License Center, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, or online at mndnr.gov/buyalicense. For archery hunts, apply with code 630; for firearms hunts, apply with code 631. If the number of applications exceeds the number of permits, the DNR will randomly draw names to choose participants. Youth may apply for one archery hunt and one firearms hunt. Successful applicants also must meet all firearms safety requirements, purchase appropriate licenses and follow hunting regulations. In addition to the 16 application-only hunts in state parks and refuge areas, any youth ages 10 to 15 also can participate in the youth deer season that runs Oct. 19-22, in 27 permit areas that encompass portions of southeastern and northwestern Minnesota and portions of the Twin Cities metro area. More information and a list of hunts and orientations can be found at mndnr.gov/discover. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
