Play by play guys on sunday

Recommended Posts

nofishfisherman

Was in just me or were the guys who did the vikings game on Sunday just brutal? I don't know their names but one of the guys didn't know what he was talking about and kept fumbling his words and calling the wrong players.

I thought they were some of the worst play by play guys I have ever heard.

It has improved since Hank Stram was trashing the purple 25 years ago.

Radio or TV?

I'm assuming you are talking about the TV guys, Bill Mass and the Nascar guy...they were terrible, but not as bad as the camera man. He must have been hung over, he made me dizzy trying to follow the ball. I wouldn't be surprised if Mass asked Julius Peppers to go steady after the game, I sensed a big time man crush.

I didn't like them either. My hubby just called me in to watch the highlights, since I couldn't stand listening to them.

Of course, I'm not allowed to watch the game in the same room with him after the remote throwing incident a couple of years ago. His bruise healed up quite nicely, though. grin.gif I guess I get a little edgy when the defense stinks.

I thought I recalled him saying "pissed off", when Napoleon Harris sacked the QB by the goaline, then he changed it to some other adjectives.

What an interesting turn of events in that game with the special teams play by both teams.

2-0!

Turn the sound off and listen KFAN. The commentators on FOX are horrible.

I was talking about the TV guys. I always thought the KFAN boys do a pretty good job. PA should get the homer of the year award every year.

The camera guys where bad as well. I thought that fox really stunk up the joint with the telecast. Bad camera, bad commentators, bad production all in all.

I would turn the tv volume off but I was switching between the twins and the vikes and I wanted to hear the twins game. Also the delay between tv and radio can drive a guy nuts.

Agreed on the TV end. That camera man will never play defense in the NFL, he fell for the play action every time!

PA is in the Homer Call Hall of Fame at 1310 The Ticket in Dallas. He's more tollerable this year by some degree but my cartoon bubble shows him listening to his own replays.

Read the Star Tribune column today; that guy had the same opinion as you guys (and me too).

Bill Maas would say something insignificant or just plain stupid and Steve Byrnes would brown nose with a fake laugh or "Bill, you are a wild man". Give me a break. I thought Byrnes was not a good announcer for Nascar coverage, why did he get bumped up to NFL?

Hopefully this weekends game will be deemed worthy of a better team, but rest assured when they play Detroit we will get them again.

I agree, last Sunday was pretty good. I like Dick Stockton.

I checked FOX Sports website, it's Ron Pitts and Terry Donahue this week, I guess I don't remember them.

Steve Byrnes and Bill Maas do not have a game this week. FOX has 6 games and they are obviously the #7 or #8 squad.

      Next time you give it a try. Take a flash light and look up to make sure the throttle flapper is returning to the closed position when you let off the gas and it dies. I have had them stick open or half open then your more or less trying to restart it at half or full throttle which may just be flooding it out. It's either starving for gas or flooding.  Let us know if you solve it.  Good Luck.

      I never fished north of Wahpeton. When I fished down there I'd go south. There's normally some walleye biting early in the year south of the main road through town. I don't know how it would be this time of year. I always fished it first ice because that was usually fishable before most lakes. If you do go out I'd recommend bringing someone along and having a chisel along to check ice. That river ice can be very inconsistent.

      I ordered a rebuild kit from amazon for less than $5.00, so hopefully that will help.  YouTube has some videos on installing it.  It is an odd thing, if it sits for a while it will start and I can run it.  Once I take it off full throttle, it will die and I can't get it to restart.  Thanks for the posts so far, I appreciate it.

      Anyone ever fish this lake? Buddy of mine wants to try it?

      For cleaning carbs I use Gumout spray with the tube on it to shoot through all the passage ways. If I'm finding one not flowing well or clogged I like to use a gas welding tip cleaner. There are a lot of sizes and you don't have to jam something to big through it which could widen and ruin the flow. I got a nice pretty new little chain saw from a guy who just could not get it running for Free. Found that no spray would go through the main jet when I was cleaning the carb. Used the tip cleaner to knock out a piece of saw dust, and clear our Deer trails out really nice this year! Like Wanderer and Borch said, rebuild kits are cheap and a good thing to do if it's been gummed up.  p.s those little piss-ant needle flow valve springs are really fun to get back in place with fat fingers! They like to jump off the work bench and hide!!

      Sounds fun Jeff!, The way the ice has set up this year maybe it will happen after all. I would like to start getting a few prizes together for Biggest Cat, and also a kids division. Hopefully someone can bring a few good ones to the scales...

      @donethat Where is this access you speak of?  I’m not familiar with “bullhead bay”.  Is there a problem with people trespassing? The access I was referring to last year looked pretty public to me.
    • Borch
      Carb kit may help.  It's plugged or gasket/diaphragm dried out or cracked.  Alternating between choke and open when running will sometimes help if diaphram.

      Anything new that way?  I was kicking around the idea of fishing Fish Trap this weekend but went elsewhere in the area.  Been finding 14-15 inches regularly.

      Get some sea foam in that gas tank and run ‘er!  I can’t tell you exactly where it’s gummed up, but it is.  It’ll take a tank and maybe two but it should clear up. Or, take the carb back off soak it and clean every oriface you can find by poking and blowing compressed air through all the holes.  Put a new carb kit on it and reinstall. Whichever way you prefer should work. Mix your gas with 100:1 Amsoil next time, especially if you let it sit with gas in it over the summer.  I run about 75:1 and have gotten away without gummed up carbs when forgetting to clear the gas from last year - like today.  First day starting the gas auger.  I found out it wasn’t stores empty like I normally do. Took about 10 pulls but she came around and did fine on the lake today.  I WAS annoyed to find gas in it but I have no one to blame but me.
