Watching that video brought back alot of memories. 98 was a great year that i wish the vikings could repeat. I hate the falcons and Gary Anderson for that very reason. I say trade for moss and bring Carter outta retirement!!!!!

Carter, Moss and Cunningham are bigger than Jesus. I hope Moss will come come back to the purple someday, even if its at the end of his career, so I can worship him again. Its to bad randy couldnt have been apart of the vikings cruise last year it probably would have been even more fun.

Shame on you Mike Tice!!!!!!!! and Good riddens!

Packers were in a rebuilding phase after the previous two years when they went to two Super Bowls and won one of them.

I don't think the Pack went 15-1 in either of those two years either! Stings don't it? grin.gif

Ask the Indianapolis Colts how much an almost perfect season means after the season is over and nothing to show for it. Really doesn't amount to much does it?

Those 98' Vikings were the best team the NFL has every seen. I wish I had more of the games on tape.

It was great for my fantasy team, I had all three of them plus Gary Andersen. They riduculed me at the draft, "homer purple boy", I got the last laugh, league champion. Every long bomb was points and money in the bank! cool.gif

Now I remember why I don't watch much football anymore. It just isn't the same and I don't think it will be as good as it was. That '98 team had the greatest offense ever.

Where is the tribute to the O-line and Robert Smith though? Cunningham had enouhg time to knit a sweater in the pocket. It is a big help to have a 1,000+ yard rusher too.

It is too bad we gave Moss away. (Too bad we gave away Culpepper too). It is unfortunate Randy doesn't have a quarterback that can get him the ball in Oakland. He is the most talented reciever in the game. Better than Owens and nowhere near the cancer to a team like T.O. is.

Oh well I am sure my dogs don't mind not having to sit inside on Sunday during the fall. grin.gif

Mentioning Moss with Jesus name is like saying Charlie Manson was good to movie stars...are you kidding? Carter the cry baby and Cunningham the little lost sheep...

GreenBay has so much Hardware and Championships and "last Second" wins over the Vikes that you folks have to take Malox before each game...Undoubtedley, Moss was/is one of the most talented recievers in the game, but not much of a man off the field nor with his teamates, Culpepper also embarrassed Minnesota and is the most overrated player in the game.

What I miss to those of you 42 and older would be the announcement from Jack Brickhouse and Co. just before a brutal cold game back in the 60's and early 70's...."FROM METROPOLITAN STADIUM" renewing the fiercest rivalry in the NFL....it's the GreenBay Packers and the Minnesota Vikings....sends shivers down the spine! Want to talk about players..how about Fran Tarkenton, Fred Cox...Bart Starr, Carroll Dale, Paul Hornung.....the "PURPLE PEOPLE EATERS.......Now that was FOOTBALL!!

Player talent can be judged many ways....however, how they conduct themselves off the field inevitably ends up being how they and their careers are judged.....Just ask Mark McGuire and the big bat from sanFransisco..... blush.giffrown.gif.

How these players with the incredible gifts God gave them and the undevotional love the fans extend to them, end up doing stupid things like Moss and Culpepper, or a James Lofton from GreenBay is astounding!! Good Luck this season and make sure this year that regardless of the rivalry's that we love to hate each other for but mutually respect the two teams who really are the NFL, Minnesota and GreenBay, that you take a minute out of the two games between us and truly appreciate the talents and consecutive game streak of Brett Favre, regardless of who you root for, as he plays his final season {I think}realize that he is the most prolific QB to ever play the game, a special person and talent who has overcome tragedies on and off the field and showed up every week...25 td passes and he will surpass Marino and own all 4 major categories that QB's are judged on, yeah he plays some street ball, throws the inevitable pick....but who would you want to have running your offense with 1:52 remaining and down a score......... wink.gif Here's to Football and the rivalry, what would we do without it! confused.gif

Greetings,

Give me Two Minute Tommy Kramer and 1:52 any time. I just dont know if he needs the bottle of JD the night before the game, the morning before the game, or during the game... frown.gif

Farve is a real man. He and Detroits Barry Sanders showing up game after game after game.

Give me Denny Green.

Don't give me Less Steckle or any of the other 4 coaches in 6 years that we had, nor the GB child molester, the MN sex capades, or huge egos.

Peace and Blessings

Sorry to burst your bubble with the rebuilding Packers Boys, but the Pack will be lucky to win four games this year. The worst part of this whole thing is the drunk driving that will occur after every Sunday game right around 1:30ish because the game will be over by then. I really feel bad for "prolific" players that don't know when to hang up the cleets, so he had a good career, but don't pull another Jerry Rice and embarass yourself on your way out the door. Thank god its September laugh.gif

    • 750 this week only Im losing money on this but would rather have someone be able to use it than for it to just sit around. After this week I am going to winterize it and it will no longer be for sale.

    • How is she on the sit command?  That is the basis of everything.  She needs to learn to sit still and wait until the next command.  I don't even teach my dogs "stay" because it isn't necessary if they are solid on "sit".  Every dog has the ability to be steady, it is up to you to teach them.  A lab that isn't steady in the boat is not only annoying, it is potentially dangerous with loaded guns and the potential to capsize a boat in open water. 

      If she knows sit but just needs some reinforcement, it may just take a couple trips where you don't even bring the gun along and let others shoot while you handle the dog. 

      If she's real bad, I would recommend going back to the basics. It will be tougher with an older dog versus a puppy but is definitely worth it. Check out the retriever training DVDS by Bill Hillman. They are spendy but definitely worth it.

      Looking for advice on keeping the dog focused and quiet in the duck boat.  Was out today and we shot enough ducks to keep her busy, however my dog is such a hyper hypo that it's a  little annoying.  Either whining or jumping back and forth from the front and back of the boat.  Do I just need to establish the expectation and keep on her till she finally gets it or is this how some dogs are in the boat? This is her 4th year duck hunting and she has continued to improve each season.  Overall I am happy with her work, especially with the limited amount of hunting I do.  We were out today for 3 hours, shot 8 birds and she did great on the retrieving end and is pretty much focused on the skies, but if something is not constantly dropping from them I feel like I have a screaming baby on my hands.  It's not really that bad, just very annoying.   I would just like her to sit in her spot, stare at the skies and wait for my command.  Is this to much to ask?

      she's getting big

      She's up to 38 pounds at a few days short of 5 months and does not stop going 100 mph. She got exposed to a lot of feathers this weekend at duck camp. She retrieved dead ducks and geese in the yard after our hunts. The goose was a bit big so I chopped a wing off and worked with that after she picked it up and barely made it back a short distance to me.

      Fishing Report from Flag Island Resort Lake of the Woods, Northwest Angle 9/25/16

       

      Happy Fall!

       

      On the Minnesota side fishing has been great around Soldier’s and Mergan’s Point. Most points have been producing fish as well as bays due to shiners moving into the bays. Raps and spinners have been successful as well as 3/8 ounce jigs with the jig bite turning back on. Shiners, crawlers and fatheads have all been attracting the fish. The magic depth has been between 8 and 18 feet. The duck and goose opener has been successful with many resident birds still around we have not seen any signs of northern birds in the area. There have been many Woodducks and Mallards around.

       

      Over on the Ontario side the Walleye bite has been great and the Crappies are picking up. Anglers have been targeting fall spots and jigging in 18-28 feet of water. Emerald shiners are on the move to spawn so watch for them in channels and bays with creeks. The water temp is cooling down and is approximately at 62 degrees. Trolling for Muskies in 10-18 feet has also been good.

       

      The leaves are starting to change colors and there is definitely a chill in the air but, there is still plenty of time to get in on some wonderful fall fishing. The best part about fall fishing is some of the great wildlife you get to see out and about. Also, it is a good time to start thinking about your winter ice fishing trip, we would love to have you as our guest!

       

      Until next week, good luck fishing!

      First time up in Brainerd in 3 years. Went to big trout on Friday, thinking it would be a guarantee (which it usually is). Nope! Not even the rock bass were hitting! Only ended up with a couple pike and a couple largemouths. The inspector at the boat launch was showing me some pics of a couple lake trout this one guy had caught a few days earlier, a 34 and 36 incher! Saturday we were going to fish gull, but it was jam packed with people! Was there a tournament going on? Ended up at a secret little lake where my wife caught bass and pike one right after the other, while I couldn't get a bite to save my life! Was good to be back up there after a 3 year absence. Hopefully I'll find the time to get up there again.
