Wouldn't you think he'd like to see a winner one more time before he dies and takes those BILLIONS with him? confused.gif

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!

      I know this is an Ice Fishing thread, but I can't seem to find much information on ice condition on the lake or how the snow looks out there and on the trails. I live down in the Duluth area and was thinking about coming snowmobiling up there this next weekend. Seems the whole states in a stupid heat wave. But you guys had more snow than us before, was wondering if there's still enough to snowmobile.

      LOTS of traffic on the Hole In The Day access over the weekend.  It degraded noticeably from Saturday to Sunday.   There are two paths heading out.  The one going straight ahead has a bit of a ridge at shore that longer houses/low clearance vehicles might have a little trouble with.  The one to the right is angled and doesn't have the ridge but developed a hole at shore Saturday night.   I'm hoping it doesn't get any worse but probably will before the weekend.  We were planning on being out overnight before the contest but plans seem to be changing.  Especially since it was reported that a vehicle went through by Hunters Point over the weekend.  Hunters Point is on the Southwest side of the lake but makes my wife leary of taking out truck and house back out even on the Northeast end where the contest is.   Sorry for the bad news.  I'm still crossing my fingers and will check the access again this week.

      Very nice fish! Thanks for the heads up on the ice cleats. Do you know how the access is holding up with this warm weather ?

      Yes.  On the north end.
