Can't stand the guy..... I read his column and listen to him on WCCO though..... not sure why.... strictly for entertainment purposes..... they always say "It's not what you know, but who you know." Sid is example #1!!

Ummm...your point is what exactly?

Sid gets paid big bucks to stir the pot a bit too. Is it entertainment?...you bet...Is he always right?...no...but neither are we playing armchair quarterback....

No real point to the post. It is just a kind of silly comparison.

The one thing I will say is we don't get quasi-celebrity status and big bucks for writing and advertising doing arm chair quarterbacking and he does. Because at the simplest form that is what he does.

Thankfully more contemporary journalists hold degrees, don't (at least not all of them don't) bootlick athletes just to get stories, can write articles on a platform other than on the coattails of others, can be something other than a blind homer/shill (are objective), and can write grammatically correct.

I used to like Sid as a kid and then I formed my own opinions and started examining his journalistic style and woke up. But he'll never get run out of a job because there are lots of old timers that watch the Sports Show, Listen to the Sports Huddle, and read his sports gossip column (like my dad). So we'll just have to wait until the Good Lord is looking for a buddy buddy reporter for the big newspaper in the sky.

hes alomost a MN icon only for the fact that he has been around so long. He kind of started the love hate relationship thing so many sports talk guys have now.

You could swap names on Sid and the Shooter and couldn't tell the difference. It's the style that outstate small newspaper guys use to fill space.

Did you see Sid during the Terry Ryan press conference today? Holy cow! Blubbering fool. Somebody better have him on suicide watch because he's right on the edge with Ryan stepping down. ROFL. What a doufus.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
