Turd Bowl begins today!

17 posts in this topic

OK Guys,

The exciting series that everybody was salivating for 6 months ago starts today. Everybody on this site probably had visions of playoff implications and October baseball way back in March and April and then a funny thing happened to Twinkie fans and Pale Hose lovers alike.....THE SEASON BEGAN! DOAH.

So who is going to be first of the worst. YO vs Buehrle tonight. I will go out on a limb (surprise) and say my beloved Pale Hose will take 2 out of 3 but here is the kicker. I will say that somewhere in the series there will be a bench clearing brawl as two underachieving teams do battle as their collective season draws to an end and they take their frustrations out on each other. You can say you heard it here first. GO BEARS!!!

You could be right with the 2 out of 3 thing, but as for the fight, you would be better off sitting at home and pissing your wife off. The twins dont have any fight in them grin.gif , seriously the twins are a mellow team with self control. This is why you guys have a catcher we used to have smirk.gif

At least you have football to fall back on. The only team with a chance at a championship plays Division III.

Funny stuff so far guys!

I guess misery loves company.

Things have been pretty sad here on the southside of the Windy this summer.

No one would think that the Twins could go to the playoffs with basicly the same team as last year certainly not 5 out 7 years anyway we don't spend enough money or sign big name free agents.

But you guys do so it must be a lock for you to got the playoffs...oh wait its baseball and chit happens!!!

Not sure if the Sox's or KC will be but if I were to guess I'd say the Sox will finish last.

Hey Pier,

Sorry to burst your bubble, my man, but your boys are in the same boat my friend as my beloved Pale Hose. You know what they say, "If you ain't the lead dog, the scenery never changes" and your Twinks are looking at the same p00p chute that my beloved Pale Hose are. Last time I looked, you guys were South of the Mason/Dixon line just like us!

We can agree on that....I'll say 1 win 1 loss and 1 tie for the series....

Go Twins...

Windy- how can a team win the World Series one year then just two seasons later- albeit with the same roster basically, flirt with last place (I think Chi-town WILL finish last)??????

I still would rather be a top turd that the one smothered by all the other turds at the bottom of the pile.

That said, Ozzie and Gardy do have their first tee times scheduled for the same day this year.

Zamboni,

The only way I can answer that and I am sure every one of you Twinkie Lovers would agree. I would rather have one World Series Championship trophy sitting on my mantle than 6 Division Titles. Getting to the dance is nice but you have got to go home with the prom queen to make it worth renting the tux, my man. Second place is just the first of the worst so I will take my slightly tarnished 2005 Championship ring and display it proudly and hope that my guys play a little better next year, hope some of my older stars stay a little more healthy, hope my GM opens the wallet a little wider and picks up some help in the bullpen and a few other spots and go for another ring!

By the by, we lead the turd bowl 2-Zip right now and go for the "flush" tomorrow (get it? Flush instead of Sweep! LOL)

Well said Windy.

Division title's are nothing in my mind unless you win the whole thing. Good example to go with the Twins are the Braves, may division title's with nothing to show, well 1 I think.

Wild,

I'm right there with you man. I'm sure it would be great as a Brave fan to see your team in the arena each year but you start to expect to watch them lose instead of getting excited about them being there. I know that you can't win if you don't play and that there is a 100% guarantee that teams who don't make the playoffs will not win the Series but I agree with your sentiment.

Looks like we win the Turd Bowl but I don't think either the Twinks or Pale Hose won anything this year. I say we just have one big FLUSH and wait till spring training.

That is just flat out ridiculous...no this Twinkie lover does not agree...

I'll take 8 Playoff appearances in 20 years over 1 world series win in a 80 years....of course we also have TWO World Series rings in that span.

You two should get a hotel room next time MNwild is down in Chicago... grin.gif

Pier,

If me and Wild was to get a room, it would have to be up near Wrigley, since they call the area there "boys town", if you get the drift. But hey, you enjoy your 6 runner up awards, think about what a great playoff run you had last year, all three games of it (?) or so and I will keep looking at that Championship Ring. Which we have 3 of as long as we are counting!

Second place is just the first of the worst, give me the whole enchilada!

Geno,

You are correct sir!

Pick a good one.

But after that week, you better get used to it.....

Unless you can replace it with something newer????

Cubbie Playoff Fever...CATCH IT!

      On many lakes it is possible to rent a boat for a reasonable price.  Or to hire a guide who knows the area and the lakes.

      Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge

      This is close to home for me. I love the dunes, but the refuge is messed up. The refuge told me they were brining native game birds back, so I was excited and said sharptailed grouse and the guy looked and me and said no ringnecked pheasants. I laughed at him and said really he said yes really. I told him ringnecked pheasants are invasive species he argued they are native and I walked out shaking my head.    The refuge could be a strong hold for sharptailed grouse, prairie chickens, and water fowl if they managed for them. The dune could extend this area.

      G'day guys, I've started up this post as I will be visiting Minnesota (to be specific the Stuart Lake in the Ottertail Lake area) and I would love to hook into some fish! I'm originally from the Netherlands, have lived in Australia for the last 8 years working as a fishing guide, I have moved to Dallas TX with my wife and now we will be visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. I would love to catch Musky, which I know West Battle Lake holds, and of course Walleye. I have been trying to look for areas that hold smallmouth but was unable to find any. I don't have a boat up there or anything so I know I will be in a massive disadvantage for musky but I will give it a try with waders. I would love to get as many tips as possible! Cheers!

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?
    • ZachD
      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD
      There are good bass in Crooked too
    • DLD24
      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.
