Continue to blow games that any average bullpen would have saved! Nicejob in the 9th against the Indians tonight! Go Takatsu or whatever his name is!! Thats one Harrelson probably had in the books eh Windy City fella?

I'm pretty sure I heard Coco Crisp saying "You can put it on the board yessssss" after the game! You and backherup ought to form a bond, we'll call it the league of losers! smirk.gifshocked.gif

Buzz, go easy on windy city, its a long season and we have to save some bashing for later when thier clubhouse falls apart or there pithing staff imploads.

Chicago got a freebie last night in the 9th trailing 3-0 they won 4-3 thanks to Cleavlands whickman. So tonight Chicago returned the favor. ff

Hey Buzz,

Twinkies had a nice season opener eh?

The baseball gods giveth and the baseball gods taketh away!

We won one yesterday that we deserved to lose and lost one today that we deserved to win. Any predictions on this weekend, I know that I have my silver and black broom ready. Sunday should be a honey of a game with Buehrle and Santana going at it in the baggie dome. Hopefully I will be chanting with the Hawkeroo...SOX WIN SOX WIN SOX WIN !

YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD.....YES!

Hey windy, What do you have to say about your new catcher A.J. Pierzynski. I loved him when we had him but we had a guy name Joe Mauer comming up. Plus we go a good "closer" for him. Im sure you like him so far, seeing how he hit one out tonight. ff

Sorry, I don't even follow hockey, but I couldn't resist. Agree with you on the Twins taking 2 of 3. Can't believe Windy even thought of bring the broom out of the closet.

Brooms?!??!?! Windy, you have got to be kidding?!?!??!??!

You can put the broom back into the closet until the Sox play Kansas City.

2 outta 3 to the Twins. Sundays match up is gonna be a good one.

boilerguy,

I agree, Chicago will get swept by KC. Although they might get swept by the Twins first. That is the only question.

No question about it Twins are going to sweep the White Sox this weekend thanks to a good start to the series by Kyle Lohse. The rivalry will defanetly grow after this one.

You spoke too soon...

White Sox beat Twins

"White Sox top Twins with pair of homers..."

"Konerko and Rowand go deep in sixth inning..."

"Kyle Lohse...fell victim to the long ball...after a Jermaine Dye single, Aaron Rowand ended Lohse's night with one out in the sixth on his first home run of the season..."

twins don't look so good, having pitching problems, can't hit with runners on base, and there fielding sucks, but it will all come together. we need a good outing from mr cy young on national TV sunday night. the bad news is that silva may need surgery, and could be out a long time.

I'm sure you know his name now...Shingo Takatsu. He got his second save against your Twins last night...Radke and Twins lose again. (B. Radke, 0-2, 6.08 ERA).

One game away from that sweep... grin.gif

HELLO BUZZ and the rest of you Twinkie-Loving FM'ers!

Can any of you Minnesota regulars tell me where I can pick up a few brooms in the Minneapolis area tonight, maybe around 9 pm or so. I think I may need them. Got to love my boys just spankin' than Twinkie ARSE! Should be a good one tonight with Buerhle and Santana going I expect about a 2 hr game with maybe three runs total. Of course I also fully expect my beloved Pale Hose to have 2 of those three runs!

YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD.....YES!

Hey Back Her Up,

Thanks for watching my back amongst all these poor misguided Twinkie lovers. I hope that some of the Windy City boys can help you and the Tigers this year, though not too much as I would hate to see them pass my beloved Pale Hose, but I would love to see them finish 2nd and be ahead of the Twinkies! Later, dude. Curt

Windy, I wondered when your would chime in. Thought for a second you forgot the sox beat the twins. Its nice to be the team that everyone hates, this usually happens after you have won alot of games or devision titles. tongue.gif Which reminds me, I sure you hate North Carolina for the same reasons.

As for brooms, forget it, santana and primetime only means one thing. A three or four hitter with maybee one or two runs. See ya at the game. ff

Well, I can empathize with your feelings. I'd like to finish first myself...but, second to the White Sox would still be an improvement over last year and they would still be on track. Just as long as we both finish ahead of those playfully hated and grossly over-rated Twins...

Friendly,

I hate to disagree with you but if you check one of the past threads on here you will see that I am not an Illini fan. I went to Northern Illinois University and two of my buddies went to Illinois and I love it when they lose. I actually predicted North Carolina's victory, by 7 points, I was two points off. I love North Carolina since it produced Chicago's greatest athlete of all time, one Michael Jeffrey Jordan. Talk to you soon, right after my beloved Pale Hose finish spankin' the ARSE of those Twinkies.

Back Her Up, hopefully Maggs, Farnsworth and the boys can help you to spank those Twinkies, just like my beloved Pale Hose are in the process of doing right now. Later, Curt

Unless you're a White Sox fan, I question why any Twins fan would want to go to that game? That stadium sucks. (See "Comerica Park" for a beautiful stadium)

The Twins will be exposed on national television...

Santana (1-0, 7.20 ERA!) won't be "on" tonight and will lose with no run support or bullpen help. I predict they lose 5-1 and Santana goes 5 1/3 innings, throws 98 pitches, gives up 4 runs (leaving his ERA at 6.97), strikes out 4, walks 4 and gets hit in the shoulder with a line drive off the bat of Joe Crede in the middle of the 5th and has to go on the 15-day D.L... grin.gif

BTW: Tigers come to Minnesota on Tuesday for 3 games, now that will be fun!

Backerup, Yes the dome is terrible but that does not stop a fan from seeing his favorite team. Once again, I never said the twins were a perfect team. They have their problems with run support and maybe defence but we will see who is on top at the end of the year. ff

It's nice to see Windy and Backherup have cuddled up to each other, IF your two teams were actually competing for division titles year after year I doubt that would be the case. When I think of you two I think about the scene from Tommy Boy where Farley says "Those aren't pillows"!! That would be you guys! grin.gifshocked.gifshocked.gif

Kudos to Detroit and the White Sox for their nice starts but I have three questions for Windy and Cantbackitup....

1) When will the White Sox figure out they still don't have any heart and fade away for the 3rd year in a row?

2) When will the Tigers fade away as the truely talented teams take over?

3) Backherup, where have you been? There are many unanswered questions from previous threads (including football) that you failed to respond to since you were last heard from. Nice of you to pop back into the picture when things go bad for our Twinks.

Again, congrats on your start, but a long way to go.

      The commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has appointed 11 Minnesotans to three-year terms on citizen oversight committees that monitor the agency’s fish and wildlife spending.  The appointees are responsible for reviewing the DNR’s annual Game and Fish Fund report in detail and, following discussions with agency leaders and others, prepare reports on their findings. Appointed to the Wildlife Oversight Committee are Garry Hooghkirk, Duluth; Amanda Leabo, Fergus Falls; Mark Popovich, Welch; John Schnedler, Richfield; and Martha Taggett, Golden Valley. Appointed to the Fisheries Oversight Committee are Karl Anderson, Greenbush; Jess Edberg, Ely; Nicole Hertel, Shoreview; Benjamin Kohn, Hudson; Mark Owens, Austin; and Craig Pagel, Duluth. The new appointees join other members whose terms are continuing. The committees will resume work after the mid-December publication of the DNR’s Game and Fish Fund report for fiscal year 2017. “We look forward to working with these citizens,” said Dave Schad, DNR deputy commissioner. “The appointments continue our commitment to share detailed budget information, bring new participants into the oversight process and ensure revenue generated by hunting and fishing license sales is used appropriately.” The Fisheries and Wildlife oversight committees continue a citizen oversight function first created in 1994. Sixty people applied for oversight committee positions this time. Factors in choosing the new appointees included geographic distribution, demographic diversity and a mix of interests. In the weeks ahead, committee chairs and four members will be selected by each committee to serve on an umbrella Budgetary Oversight Committee chaired by another appointee, John Lenczewski. The committee will develop an overall report on expenditures for game and fish activities. Those recommendations will be delivered to the DNR commissioner and legislative committees with jurisdiction over natural resources financing for further consideration. Minnesota’s Game and Fish Fund is the fiscal foundation for much of the state’s core natural resource management functions. About $110 million a year is deposited into this fund from hunting and fishing license sales, a sales tax on lottery tickets, and other sources of revenue including a reimbursement based on a federal excise tax on certain hunting, fishing and boating equipment. Past DNR Game and Fish Fund expenditure reports and citizen oversight committee reports are also available at mndnr.gov/gamefishoversight. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Conservation grants awarded by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will help restore, enhance and protect habitat throughout the state.  This latest round of 73 conservation grants is funded by the agency’s Conservation Partners Legacy (CPL) grant program. Now in its ninth year, the program has awarded over $50 million to nonprofit organizations and government entities for conservation projects. The DNR recently received $9.9 million in grant requests from 86 applicants during round one of the application cycle. The DNR has funded $7.5 million of these requests. “Projects include habitat improvements that benefit deer, turkey, pheasants and a wide variety of species,” said Jessica Lee, DNR conservation grants coordinator. “Oak savanna, wetlands and pollinator habitat are restored through this grant program, to give a few examples.” Conservation groups and others interested in applying in the future are encouraged to plan in the coming months so they can apply when funds are again available. The DNR’s CPL program provides grants ranging from $5,000 to $400,000 to conservation nonprofit organizations and government to help fund projects to restore, enhance or protect fish and wildlife habitat in Minnesota. The Lessard-Sams Outdoor Heritage Council recommended the grant program, which was approved by the Minnesota Legislature and has been in place since 2009. Funding has been provided annually from the Outdoor Heritage Fund, which is part of the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment and funded by a voter-approved statewide sales tax of three-eighths of 1 percent. Round one of the proposals for fiscal year 2017 included the traditional grant cycle, the metro grant cycle and the expedited grant cycle. The expedited cycle for standard types of projects is currently open for another funding round, with the maximum grant award being $50,000. Applications are due online by 4 p.m. Friday, Jan. 19. More information on the program’s grant cycles, and a complete list of the most recent grant applications and past awarded projects are on the DNR website at mndnr.gov/cpl.

      The Sherburne County Geologic Atlas-Part B was recently published by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Part B covers groundwater conditions and sensitivity to pollution. It expands on Part A, the geology atlas previously published by the Minnesota Geological Survey. The atlases are a valuable resource for groundwater management and land-use planning. Sherburne County is characterized by sandy surface and subsurface conditions. This type of geology creates extensive and productive aquifers that are relatively sensitive to pollution. In addition to maps of pollution sensitivity, groundwater chemistry data are shown, highlighting areas with elevated concentrations of chloride and nitrate. The deeper bedrock aquifers of the eastern part of the county are less sensitive to pollution. The atlas can be acquired through the following sources: Online: PDFs of the report and maps, GIS files and program information are available by searching “Sherburne County Geologic Atlas, Part B.” The GIS folder includes GIS files and associated metadata for the water table, wells, and maps for groundwater flow and pollution sensitivity. The ArcMap file displays the data as shown on the published maps and includes hyperlinks to image files of the published cross sections. Paper copies: Part A and B atlases can be purchased from Minnesota Geological Survey Map Sales, 612-626-2969. Prices for each atlas package range from $12–$15. County geologic atlases provide geologic and hydrogeologic information to support regional planning and water resource management and protection. Partial funding for this project was provided by the Clean Water Fund and the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Good Advice Don . You are correct there was a wheeler on Horseshoe back by Krons bay.  Saw him Sunday when I was out on the ice. How he didn't go through is hard to believe.  The chain  is very spotty at best. Finding areas of open water to 4 1/2 5  inches tops. A lot of guys r pushing the envelope out there on Sunday there was at least 10 guys out on mud and the ice is 3-3 1/2 inches thick in that area, also saw a group out near Camerons Island, A lot of these areas were completely open on Thursday so be very very cautious. Tom is right you could see the different shades of freeze up before this snow now its a guessing game. Remember u put others at risk that have to try and rescue you if you break through so use common sense. On a side note there is a pocket of open water on the N end of Big, swans are keeping it open and it just froze over yesterday in front of the golf course on Schneider.  Shaumans bay has 5-6 inches on Rice main lake 2-3 inches.  Koronis is still open was fishing in the boat two weeks ago out there so it may be a while for that beast!

      can hardly see 3 pound test and tie on the 3mm let alone 1.5 mm and 3/4 pound test. yowzer!

      Not really, I had that shock a year or so ago when I went out for a day fishing with a Ice Tournament guy. His rods had very light ends, as in you could almost blow on them and they would move. He bought them all on-line for some good cash $80-$100 each. But he did have on all his rods that little cheap in-line reels with like 1-2 lb line on them all! I had to actually borough one of his rods and reels just to keep up with him!
    • eyeguy 54
      zapped HT a note to see if the rod is available anywhere with bigger guides. Nope. 
    • iiccee63
      Sunday am. 3 inches of ice 12/9 with people fishing a few hundred yards out towards the west shore.
    • iiccee63
      Let me rephrase the topic.... Am looking for current ice conditions on this lake. Well aware how things were weeks ago. Any info on current conditions would be appreciated. Thanks
    • Lotharski
      Thanks for the report, Chill!  I went out for a few hours Saturday afternoon and set up on the first break in about 15 fow.  I had the camera down and only saw pike.  Not one gill or eye...  I had 7-7.5" ice where I checked.
