Carl is taking a beating these days. He's got a lot of commercial property with failing businesses that aren't making him any money.

I don't think he will have to resort to ramen noodles or mac and cheese for dinner anytime soon...

Yeah I remeber when McCombs owned the Vikes-him, Pohlad and Taylor were all on the list. Not bad- 3 of the 4 major sports teams

I don't think anyone can complain about Taylor not spending enough money. Blame McHale for mismanaging it.

The MN team owners are not getting rich off the teams, they buy the teams for they are the only people that can afford them. crazy.gif

Why have a "business" that brings in $100M and spend $120M to maintain it? Easy for us to sya when "they have the money".

Just be glad they are still in MN!

      The Bay is so different from the Lake.  The heavy breeze is keeping the lake open.  Things calm down Fri to Sun that will most likely freeze the lake over.  Then we get strong winds again on Mon to Wed that could likely blow it open again.  You may be able to fish the bay, but I am doubting the lake.  JMHO.  I can wait, but I am getting the itch.

      I have a 2015 21' Ice Castle RV that has two house batteries. I added the second to the house. It will run the furnace fan all night but it is running a lot slower by morning. There is a noticeable increase in fan speed when I start the generator in the morning. I am thinking of adding a third battery to the house to make up the difference.

      Any area ice reports? I'm hearing that most of the smaller bodies of water in the area have now frozen over. Should make it out sometime this weekend to try my luck . Good luck, and please stay safe
