No KG home game

4 posts in this topic

This Friday was supposed to be the big KG homecoming. But an abdominal strain from the previous T-wolves matchup 11 games ago is still bothering Garnett so he may not make the trip. Huge bummer. I had tickets with a buddy for the game and it won't be the same without him there. Put him in street clothes at least.

The wolves marketed the heck out of the game, packaging it with the Dallas game to sell more tickets. I'm sure they had some sort of tribute planned.

I was hoping he could at least save face since the game at Boston featured Garnett popping his C's jersey after the game and cursing out the T-wolves bench. Not the nicest gesture to the thousands of fans that still support him back in MN.

So after what KG did in Boston, do you think the MN fans will cheer him, or boo him? I think what he did was very disrespectfull to a team that made him a very rich man over the years. He did this and Im sure someday the Wolves were going to honor him by retiring his jersey, and Im sure more. I have lossed any respect I had for him after that. Big Al has been smoking hot, and has been better then what KG has been in many years.

i did lose some respect for him, but i do understand that it could have just been in the heat of the moment...i have a feeling that he will be there, whether he will play or not i dont know, and he will probably get emotional because of all the support he is going to get..there is absolutely NO WAY ON EARTH that the fans will boo him

they were talking on SC tonight that hes not counting on making the trip, but like burn said, i would be suprised if he dont come to the game. He has a heart here in MN i think, just didnt work out with the front office and players.

Guess we will see what happens.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.
