Sleeping with the Enemy...........

8 posts in this topic

Listening to Mike and Mike this morning on the way to work they were discussing whether or not you would want the enemy to play for your team. In my case that would involve the Randy Moss trade to the Packers. I was all for it, as in the words of Herm Edwards "you play to win the game". I feel that anyone who helps my team win is ok in my book. What do you guys think?

Moss would remember his two plays: 1. Go long; 2. Take play off.

What about the Vikes signing Darrin Sharper? Same principle, he was an "enemy" but now is a huge asset to our team.

Him and Longwell, but what about someone like Frank Thomas or Mark Buerhle coming to the Twins, Joe Sakic coming to the Wild, Carmello Anthony coming to the Timberwolves? Is it to a point now that superstars moving freely through the free agent market has changed our outlook on "hated" players? As a Red Sox fan, I would never want Jeter or A-Rod to come and play in Fenway.........shouldn't that be the same for all the teams I cheer for? I'm not sure it is.

I guess it's personal preference then. Think Favre coming to the Vikes that would be the ultimate for a Vikes Fan. But Stars follow the money, and owners just want to win they don't so much care about enemies and the like.

I wouldnt mind if jeter or arod played for the twins, I might even consider the cheater bonds, he wouldnt be my favorite player, but what the hay, the twins need all the help they can get!

Seems like in NE he has to remember one different play: 1. Go long (still the same); 2. Score TD

Tom Brady seems to like having him there, probably Donte Stallworth and Wes Welker do too.

He is leading the league in Yards, Yards per game and shares the lead of recieving TDs. Must not be taking too many plays off as of late. grin.gif

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
