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.

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.
