Could the 06' Tigers replace the infamy of the 69'Cubs???

3 posts in this topic

For those baseball junkies,,, the Cubbies of 69' held a 11-12 game lead on the Mets in mid-aug. The proceeded to lose the div by 5-6 games to the Mets and not make the playoffs.

On Aug 7, 2006,,, thee Detroit Tigers lead the Chicago White SUX by 1 game and the Minnesota Twins by 10.5 in the AL Cent, and the Tigers were 40 games over .500 at 76-36. IF, and I stress IF, the DETROIT Tigers fail to make the playoffs,--- would this not equal the most total collapse of any team ever???? It's not talked about due to the advent of the popularity of the NFL, but my goodness, the Detroit Tigers could replace the only team worthy of such infamy, the C.Cubs,, and wouldn't that be a nice thing????

GO TWINS--

Detroit still has six left with KC. That may be enought.

Since starting the season 57-31, The White Sox have gone 27-34 so far in the second half.

The '69 Cubs went 61-37 during the first half before finishing 31-33 in the second half.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.
