Guess that means the Packers will turn into the Vikings, or worse yet, the Browns. Here's looking forward to 30 years of bad football.

Very excited to have Rodgers step in. Favre had a very good career and IT was time to hang it up.

Ron - That was uncalled for and how many Superbowls have the Vikings been too.

How about the last pass in his last game? grin.gif

Not going to say Favre wasn't a great quarterback, but I still don't like him or the Packers. Wouldn't be a good rivalry if I did.

Someone better put Madden and Gerbschmidt on suicide watch. whistle.gif

I didn't think he would end his career like that. I figured he would try another run.

So let me get this straight...Brett Favre tells the Packers if you don't get Randy Moss he's done (a main reason he retires). His receivers helped him go to the NFC champ game...if Favre wasn't so loved...wouldn't he be considered a bleotch???

At least we can remember favre for how we should!

His last pass of his career a PICK!!!!

I heard he was [PoorWordUsage]'d about the Moss thing. Remember when Rodgers wanted him to mentor him and he said it wasn't his job. Great guy huh? Leave the team that put you on the map haning.

He was a great QB but I'm not gonna miss Madden stroken him every chance he gets.

I agree 100%. Praise a guy for having the career he had? Not on my watch. I did forget one photo for all you Packer haters.

Bottom right.....that's what the Lombardi trophy looks like. You know, the trophy you get when you don't choke. blush.gifwhistle.gif

It will be a chain reaction...next to retire is Frank Caliendo.

Favre was a great QB that played the game the right way.

Hey Flat, pretty sure the pack has choked away just as many lombardi's as the vikings have. Favre being reason #1 for many opportunities to get them. The giant game this postseason was just 1 of many we watched Brett toss away.

Maybe Culpepper will be heading to Green Bay. Wouldn't that be funny!

good riddance to a drunk and a drug addict. will miss those INT's though. After all he is the King.

I always knew he'd go out whiny as well. Randy resigns with the Pats after long discussions with Favre and the GB front office doesnt make a move so the prima-donna pouts and quits.

nothing is bringing me down today

It was overdue, now Rodgers has a chance to be the future of the pack.

Im sure he will change his mind anyway, he is just crying that Packers didnt do anything in the free agency!

3 for 4 at the big dance. I would have to credit Elway's game more than a Pack choke in that one. Now if you're talking playoff losses (15-1 reg season-41-0 playoff game loss blush.gif), my football knowledge only goes so far. eek.gif

Never did any booing. When you grow up watching Lynn Dickie throwing to rapist James Lofton, while being crushed by the Bears, you learn to take it. Didn't even boo the Magic man having only a flash in the pan year. As a matter of fact, the only booing I've done lately was Denny kneeling down with time on the clock. I really hoped the Purple would do it that year. sick.gifsick.gif

      Contact the DNR if there are serious concerns.  Tournaments have to be permitted through them.  If they're not handling the fish correctly, they might lose their permit.

      A 6-mile section of the Glacial Lakes State Trail will be closed as contractors work on improvements, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
      Trail users will see intermittent closures until June 1 as workers remove trees and brush that are near the work area. The segment between the trailhead in Willmar and Spicer’s south side at Progress Way is scheduled to close on June 5 as workers begin mill and overlay work on the trail’s westernmost 6 miles. The project is scheduled for completion by Aug. 25. In addition to a smooth, new surface, trail users will enjoy new benches, improved accessibility, and paved crossings at gravel road intersections. The current 8-foot trail width will also be expanded to 10 feet. “We think our trail users will be pleased with these improvements,” said Jeremy Losinski, area supervisor for the DNR’s Parks and Trails Division. “The wider trail will provide easier passage. Plus, the smoother pavement replaces the trail’s oldest paved surface, which is now more than 20 years old. It had deteriorated and reached the end of its life cycle.” Contractors will also be replacing several culverts along the trail to provide better drainage. “While we want to make sure everyone is safe, there will still be opportunities to use parts of the trail during construction,” Losinski said. “The construction will start in Willmar and work its way toward Spicer, so small portions of the trail will have limited use. Our trail users may not be able to go all the way from Willmar to Spicer during times in the construction process. We just ask that our trail users obey the closure signs and avoid construction equipment.” Prinsburg-based Duininck, Inc., is the contractor. Construction updates will be posted on the DNR’s Glacial Lakes State Trail Web page. The 22-mile western segment of the Glacial Lakes State Trail links Willmar with the Kandiyohi/Stearns County line. The 5-mile eastern segment connects Roscoe to Cold Spring. Built on the former Burlington Northern railroad grade, a total of 27 miles is paved as the trail cuts across the border between Minnesota’s western tallgrass prairie and eastern deciduous forest.

      The four I use are pretty shallow for at least the first hundred yards, but I've never damaged my boat or prop. Just gotta take it slow and trim the motor up.    I use Isle, Cove, Garrison, and the one near the casino, Shaboshkung or whatever.

      Greetings fishermen and women! Its great being back in the swing of things and better yet in the boat! Both the MN and Ontario season is now open and fishing has been great! Staffers here at Flag Island Resort have been busy getting ready for the upcoming summer months with some deep cleaning, window washing, grounds work and remodeling!   On the Minnesota side anglers have been catching nice saugers, walleyes and perch. Soon the crappies should be finding their way into the shallows around Angle Inlet and other small creeks and the walleyes have spawned out over the past couple of weeks. With the warmer temps that started out last week anglers were finding fish in shallower water between 5-17 feet now, with the cooler temps, rain and winds most of the fish have been pushed deeper into the 16-26 foot range. Points and reefs close to large land masses adjacent to sand and rubble have been hot locations. Anglers have found fish near Soldier’s, Little Oak, Oak Island and NW Point. The water surface temp has been in that 50-55 degree range. Right now it seems like everything is working from ¼ to 3/8 jigs to slow trolling with raps in the shallows as well as trolling spinners keeping on the move at 0.9 mph.   Over in Ontario, the walleye, sauger, crappie, perch and pike have been hungry. Perch and crappie should be spawning soon. Crappies are being caught around the 20 foot mark . Sandy bays and points have been best for the walleye and crappie bite while the perch are still caught in the rocks. Many pike have been caught in areas with current. There have been reports of a lot of smallmouth mixed in with the walleyes.  Jigging with a ¼-3/8 ounce jig has been the ticket and the water temp has been around 49-52 degrees.   We hope to see you up here soon! Until next week, good luck fishing! Guides Dan Schmidt, Jeremy Glessing and Cale Albers Flag Island Resort 218-223-8011
