Favorite Playoff Sport to Watch

16 posts in this topic

What is your favorite playoff sport to watch?

1. Baseball-Nothing beats the Fall Classic IMO. Ace pitchers vs Ace pitchers, close ballgames, key managerial moves, leave my starter in or take him out, pinch hit for this guy or that guy. I just love playoff baseball.

2. Hockey- What other sport is there with 2,3,4 or even more overtime games. The game is fast and IMO always exciting. Is there a better site in sports than a grown man with a monster beard hoisting Lord Stanley's cup.

3. Football- There are always some upsets but usually the top teams make it to the Super Bowl. Usually!!!

4. Basketball- IMO this is the most predictable sport. There are upsets(GS over Dallas) but not that many. Sometimes if a team gets down by more than 10 in the 4th the game is over. Plus there are to many timeouts in the 4th quarter. The last 3 minutes of the 4th takes about 45 minutes. Plus everyone knows your big star is going to take the last shot. Very predictable IMO.

Really depends on the season for me.

It did use to be Hockey back in the day when it was a much better game when they actually scored and it wasn't all nuetral zone traps. Lets face it the players are too big and fast and the rinks are to small.

Tough call but College Football Bowl Games, MLB PLayoffs and World series, NFL Playoffs, NCAA Hockey playoffs in that order.

I agree. BUT- you can "miss" all but the last minute of most basketball games and not truly "miss" anything- the last minutes usually the best

NHL playoffs hands down.

MLB 2nd

NCAA football has WAY to many teams. Who cares who wins the Sun Bowl or the Insight Bowl or the Lays Potato Chip Bowl.

NHL - the Stanley Cup playoffs. Nothing else is even close.

Baseball is a distant second.

Thats funny!! I do admit I was flipping through and came across one of the championship games and watched for about 2 minutes. That was all I could take.

Hockey-- both NCAA DI playoffs and NHL last 2 rounds. That's action, and the games are always close, unlike most Super Bowls and WS.

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!

      I'm doing a day trip there on Saturday, will post afterwards. I plan to just fish the big basin area humps and points.

      Just looking for general advice... Taking our grandson on his 1st Rainy Lake boat camping trip, 7/01-7/05. We'll be near Kempton Entrance on the east side. I've been here many times before, but never over the 4th. Plan to target all species, but want 'eyes for supper. Are the walleyes on the reefs yet or still transitioning? Depths? Leeches or minnows? Bass/pike still in shallows? Main goal is to give him some opportunities for some fish. Thanks 'Pout

      Hay Creek in Red Wing is probably your closest option.  Otherwise the Kinni, Rush, etc, just over the boarder in Wi is a good fishery.

      I was kind of restless last night so since it was a bit windy I decided to go for a quick trip to a nearby small lake that I rarely go to. Tried lindy rigging leeches but the sunfish were on the chomp! I eventually went to a shallow weed point and marked a bunch of fish. Started pitching small jigs/plastics and absolutely pounded the crappies. I have never in my life caught so many small ones. Lots of 5-7" with the occasional big one 13-14" mixed in... I did not feel like cleaning fish so tossed all back. Should be a phenomenal crappie lake in a couple years...

      Welcome Rachelkate21 to the forum.  "brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout?" That is a pretty high order around Lakeville or anywhere. You may have to go south of you around Whitewater or up north in the arrowhead area. Best bet is check out the MN DNR site for Trout streams and their locations within the state. Good Luck!

      Wanderer ,I believe Ely seizure was something to do with the BWCA . Lots of articles in newspaper .Some law about no commercial activity ( an active viable fishery) in side of park unless it enhances park like canoe rentals ect.... They were trying to stop Fishery for last number of years. I believe DNR does not want to do away with Frozen Bait Market , they just don't want fish from the Great Lakes or other contaminated areas to bring diesese to inland lakes.  If fish does not have a VHS Certification Number on its package , I would not be using it for bait.  Grocery store stuff totally Illegal ...  I emailed a Bait Company that has VHS Certified Smelt and Alewifes   info@awesomeadventuresfisheries.com     They gave me a list of stores that carry their products ... Save hunting around for Legal Bait   Hope this Helps

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).
