....or are the games on tbs just not very exciting to watch due to the whole broadcast format? Just doesn't seem to relay that playoff level of competition to me.

One thing I miss- 10-15 years ago, going out in the afternoon bow hunting, coming home and temps a crisp 40-50 degrees out and watching playoffs and even WS baseball while eating dinner. Now its still 90 degrees out and just dont "feel the same"

Haven't seen a pitch if playoff baseball yet, and it sucks. I don't get TBS with my basic cable subscription. Hopefully they don't carry the championship and world series.

I just think it's poor in general that professional sports are on cable or satellite dish. I grew up watching MNF with Dad, the Twins in the evening with the family, and the NBA and NHL on weekends. Heck, even wrestling was once on the local stations.

Say what you will about sports, but I would rather have my kids watching that than some of the other garbage on TV.

I would have missed the entire Bulls dynasty and most of the T-wolves early games w/o cable, watching the Twins win it all in 87 and 91. I still believe that sports, teams, and certain athletes are a part of your life and without them you lose a little bit of something.

I've actually liked it on TBS, You will get your wish as it looks the AL is back on fox. Joe Buck is great, but Tim Macarver is the reason I like it on TBS. He's not there!

I agree, I can't stand McCarver. He seems to try to make every phrase that comes out of his mouth sound like it is the quote for the ages. I really did like seeing Ted Robinson again. I thought he and Kaat were the best TV team the Twins had. Robinson just seems like he always had a great question to ask Kaat about the game. Kind of like a fan with a mike.

Joe Buck. He is a joke!!! Athlete want to be. If he is on I have no problem changing the channel. I'll never forget his comments about Moss when Randy displayed his pulling down his pants move against the Green Bay Slackers. I was on my back laughing my butt off. Mr Bucks comments about how Moss was being a total jerk. The best part of that whole deal was Moss was doing it as a joke to the GB packers and Buck said he was just a menice to the league. Look who's laughing at you now Joe Buck your nothing but a sports want to be. To small to have ever played anything in his life other then with himself. Just another Joe Morgan or Brett Mustburger. Joe Buck should be prodcasting little league. Sorry to say I still wouldn't watch the (Contact Us Please).

I agree with you Colonel. Joe Buck is an arrogant donkey. He is riding on the coat tails of his old man. Kinda like the Caray's. Although I don't think Chip is as bad as Joe Buck.

Okay I don't understand the Joe Morgan comment. I would agree he's a tad arrogant, but he's a knowledgeable broadcaster & the guy is a hall of fame baseball player. Kind of hard to say he's a wanna be.

I didn't think much of the Joe Buck comments when Moss did that move against GB. I thought it wasn't a wise choice by Randy, but it was still funny & pretty harmless. Buck made it out like he'd pulled a gun & shot a couple of fans.

McCarver's very arrogant & has to always find a way to get back to how great he was playing with the Cardinals...

      Here's a little back ground. The Dakota originally called the lake Mde Maka Ska (modern spelling Bde Maka Ska, pronunciation: Be-DAY Mah-KAH-Ska)[5] meaning White Earth Lake,[6] or White Bank Lake,[7] a name that probably was given by the Ioway who inhabited the area until the 16th century. Another Dakota name for the lake may have been Mde Med'oza, which was the name initially adopted by settlers, either as Lake Medoza or in translation as Loon Lake.[8] The Dakota also described it as Heyate Mde, meaning "Lake Set Back (from the River)".[9] The United States Secretary of War, John C. Calhoun, sent the Army to survey the area that would surround Fort Snelling in 1817. Calhoun had also authorized the construction of Fort Snelling, one of the earliest Euro-American settlements in the state. The surveyors renamed the water body "Lake Calhoun" in his honor. The Fort Snelling Military Reservation survey map created by Lt. James L. Thompson in 1839 clearly shows the lake as bearing the name "Calhoun".[10] Minneapolis skyline reflected in the lake in 2010 Calhoun's legacy as a pro-slavery politician has led critics to question whether he is the best person to be honored. In 2011 the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board visited the issue. Their legal counsel concluded that the board could not legally change the name, as state law gives that power to the Commissioner of Natural Resources, and then only in the first 40 years after the name was designated. Following the Charleston church shooting in June 2015, a fresh drive to change the name started via an online petition. The Park Board indicated it would look into whether they could change the lake's name through state action,[11][12] and in fall 2015 added the Dakota name to signage below the official name.[1] On March 22, 2016, an advisory group decided via majority vote to urge the Minnesota Park and Recreation Board to restore the lake's former name.[13] In 2017, the Minneapolis Park Board voted unanimously to change the lake's name back to that of Bde Maka Ska[14] and the Hennepin County commissioners approved it more narrowly.[15] The change needs final approval at state and federal level in order to go into effect.[16] There was also a proposal to rename the lake for Senator Paul Wellstone, who is buried in nearby Lakewood Cemetery.[17]

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources today announced the State of Minnesota has approved changing the name of Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis to Bde Maka Ska. The DNR’s decision follows a Hennepin County Board resolution requesting the change.  “The DNR respects the role of elected county boards in determining name changes for geographic features,” DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr said.  “In this instance, I am confident the Hennepin County Board carefully considered community values and citizen perspectives in determining that this was the right action to take. DNR’s role is to ensure the county followed the proper process.” The DNR’s decision means the lake name change will become official in Minnesota when the DNR’s approval is officially recorded by Hennepin County and published in the State Register. Hennepin County commissioners voted to seek the name change Nov. 28. The DNR will submit the Hennepin County resolution, along with the state approval, to the U.S. Board of Geographic Names, which will approve or deny the name change for federal use. The DNR is the state agency that approves or denies name changes for geographic features, after Minnesota counties consider name change resolutions, gather public input and vote on proposed changes. In considering county requests to name a geographic feature or change a feature’s name, the DNR’s role is to consider 1) whether the county followed a proper public process prior to taking its action, and 2) whether the county-approved name complies with naming conventions. For example, names must avoid confusion with similarly named features, and names may not commemorate a living person. A copy of the DNR’s order for this name change and details on how Minnesota geographic features are named are available on the naming geographic features webpage.

      my dad grew up in The Pas, my grand parents owned the avenue hotel and they had a place on Clearwater. Summers we would go up and fish and ski and such. Lots of good memories, other than the horseflies (Bulldogs). My experience was always it really didn't matter what you used, for lakers as long as it was shiny it got hit. Our technique was pretty simple, drop it to the bottom and reel is up fast. they hit hard on the way up and its clear like superior so you can see them a long way down if you have good ice. The river right out of town is good for char too.

      Yeah, ok, I'm using the 8. My drill also overheated after punching 5-6 holes in quick succession. Thanks for the responses... sorry for hijacking the thread

      So I just came back from Lake Winnipeg, and the 3 feet of ice they have there and found my auger lacking. I gave up the gas auger years ago to switch to the clam plate and drill. Around here, even Bemidji where I fish the most, I have never had a problem with getting through the ice. Lake Winnipeg is a different story. Anyway, I have a 6 inch bit now, and when with drilling a couple holes side by side to deal with the big fish but thinking back to my old 10 inch strikemaster I was almost willing to deal with all the issues I had with it to have some space to wrangle a fish. Soooo, im looking at going with an 8 inch bit, with the Milwaukee and the clam plate. I know that clam had a gearbox in the past that would help with that but seems they no longer offer it. will I tear up my drill with the bigger auger? I have two 9 amp batteries  and double the torque now too so I'm figuring a few  extra holes compared to the five amps and 650inc pounds I had for the previous drill setup. Suggestions? thoughts? other than getting a gas auger, cuz that isn't happening.
    • mrpike1973
      That would make a difference now wouldn't it?  Oops my mistake I have a 6 inch just got done fishing today with 5 amp battery I got 27 holes at 19 inches of ice. I noticed the drill seemed warm after drilling 5-6 in a row but no problems. I don't have a gas auger any more but I see what the guys are saying about a power auger.
