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.

      Dad and I fished this past Saturday and Sunday with portables and saying the fishing was slow would be an understatement. Between the 2 days we hit the mud flats pretty hard and stayed very mobile. Didn't even set up a house during the day because it was so nice out. We fished the mudflats from East Flat down to Blue Jug, over to 8 Mile and back up to Matton Flat. The day bite was very tough, we would mark fish but they wouldn't want much to do with it. We picked up 3 eyes Saturday morning with the biggest being 17" then picked up only 3 more during the day. They only seemed to hit our dead sticks with a shiner on it. We used mainly VMC gold perch tingler spoons and flutter spoons without much luck jigging. On Saturday night we had a sleeper rented from Twin Pines Resort and our house was in 20'. We had 6 bites throughout the night with a bigger fish breaking off and a couple smaller ones being caught. We really had to give them a lot of time to inhale the shiner. On Sunday we went back out to the Mud Flats with little confidence and the fishing was pretty slow again. Didn't hear many good reports from this weekend, not sure if it was the warm weather along with the pressure system or what.

      I think your best bet would be the narrows on Pelican. That can be pretty good crappie and walleye area. I usually fish it a couple times earlier in the season. Otherwise closer to Battle Lake you could give South Turtle or East and West Lost a try.

      I thought Clitherall was pretty good but never fished panfish down there.  I fish mainly the Perham/DL area.   Panfish have been very skitish as of lately.  We have been using mainly 4mm and 5 mm jigs for crappies but the panfish are wanting 3 mm jigs.  Best luck has been with a horizontal shapped jig tipped with 2-3 wax worms (depending on hook and wax worm size) very lightly jigged.  Most of the action has been once they appear is to reel up above them 5-8 feet then slowly drop down stopping 1-2 feet above them and twitching the jig LIGHTLY.  Anything with a "GLOW" has been killer for paints.  The lakes I've been fishing have almost a foot of snow and the water was merky prior to freeze up so even though the sun is up I'm still hitting the jigs with the UV Light and the fish are instantly reacting.  I've been targetting deeper holes and finding them in that 20-30' mark but I've heard some reports that they have started coming back up into the shallows and hitting the green weeds again.  Crappies right away this year were liking the 5 mm jigs tipped with a wax worm and soft plastic suspended but they have started preferring smaller jigs also.  Hope this helps you some.

      Caught a few walleyes on o'dowds this weekend. Was marking a lot of fish on the bottom but very skidish and not willing to bite very well. Anyone else have any luck on o'dowds?
