Tigers got all that MOJO -- We're home free! (ya...right)

Big win last night. Believe the SOX are out of it. Two team race for the Division. Loser gets the Yankees.

Chicago with it's huge payroll will go down as a big disappointment in 2006 by not getting back to where all the so-called experts expected them to be... in the playoffs and World Series.... they could still turn it around, but time is running out on Windy's boys of summer.

Just proves that last year was a fluke. The sox always fade come august and sept...its just the make up of who they are. They almost blew it last year but played well enough (and other teams in div, poor enough) to make it into the playoffs on fumes. Their dreams usually come to a crashing end with a series in Minnesota too bad it doesnt look like those games will mean much for them at this point.

Hey Buzz, remember what you said yesterday? Well, the WSox got the 1 out of the way now but I don't think they're gonna get the 12.

Very nice story there Sled.

Mr. MOJO rising..........

Anyways, I'm watching the game last night and they show the pics of the 3-4-5 (Dye, Thome, Konerko) so I know nothings gonna go wrong that inning, then later I see that Podsednik is pinch-hitting and I'm like, who the he** is HE pinch-hitting for? I know I AIN'T IN THERE so that poor guy must be a real bum!

Windy, you shoveling any dirt yet?

Geez, wonder if we'll ever hear from Windy again...he's gotta hope the WSox win at least one of their last 12.......AFTER the WCard is clinched I hope of course.

I'm a thinkin' that the people of Chicago are going to hop on the Bears bandwagon and hope they can salvage the end of summer/fall season for them as their White Sox are faltering big time. I could be wrong, but I suspect you'll stop hearing White Sox banter and it will turn to Bears this and Bears that.... I've been wrong before, we'll seeeeeeeeeee. grin.gif

Buzz,

Like I have said before, "Any port in a storm"! I did my duty and paid my respects to my beloved at the funeral last night. I would bet my last dollar that you will not see Mr. Buehrle wearing the black and silver next year. I think he has already been fitted for two red birdies on the front of his jersey. But to put a positive "Windy" spin on the game, at least I saw the Sox pull off a triple play and Thome did get his 40th tater. So to validate what my running mate and "brother from another mother" said....BEAR DOWN CHICAGO BEARS! Windy

This really shouldn't come as a surprise to most WhiteSox fans that were actually following the team before they won their first WS in 80 years.

They have consistently collapsed towards the end of the season, with last year being an abberation.

The three straight div. titles that the Twins won were supposed to be won by the Sox. "ON PAPER", they were supposed to be better, but when you played the games, they weren't.

Hopefully the Tig's can falter enough for the Twins to win the div. and continue the dominance they have shown since the 2002 season, minus 2005 when the Sox fluked out and won it all.

PS - The Bears aren't that great either. grin.gif Although they are probably better than the Vikes.

Windy, you did your boys proud and stood in here tall one against all and held your own. Even your final thoughts show a true WSox love so I give you a big "Attaboy Windy" - spinning it like we know you can. Remember who their other TriplePlay this yr was against?

Listen, it's not so bad to be out of it. I still root for my Cubbies and they got 3 chances EVERY year to make the playoffs: slim, fat, and none!

Well guys....I leave it to group concsious (sp?):

Do I root FOR the WSox tonight?

      Decided to fish Big Detroit saturday with a buddy.  Had bites but my 24 v 75#  trolling motor couldn't keep me in place so that sucked.  When we left the access to go fishing I asked the young man how late they were open till so I could make it back in time to get washed since I was going to fish a different lake on Sunday morning with the nephews.  I will be here till 5:30!  Sounds good see you before 5!  Fishing sucked, Wind BLEW, RAIN SUCKED!  So we packed up at 4:30 drove to access get there around 4:40 and they are gone!  Hot on my heels is a local fishing guide and he wasn't happy also because he had the same game plan.  Was told that there would be one at Melissa till 5 pm religiously.  Got there by 4:55 and they were gone from that lake too.  I honestly don't feel comfortable enough to do a safe job washing since I don't have a pressure washer and I really don't want to spread the Zebra Mussels from lake to lake and I know it was only a few hours 5-6 but honestly whats the point of AIS being there if they don't stay till the house they are supposed to be?  There was an easy half dozen boat trailers still at the access so it wasn't like we were the only two left at the access.

      Had some fun Saturday morning crashing through the lily pads on a small metro lake.  2 fish over 5 lbs and every fish absolutely choked the bait.  All I want to do is throw top water now, haha.  Wish I had longer arms or a partner in the boat for a decent photo.

      I really hope they don't screw this place up. I love it out there and have done a lot of hunting there. I sure wish there were fewer horse trails. It shouldn't be so easy for hunters to access all the woods. That makes it harder to get away from the guys who want to hunt no more than 50 yds from a gravel road.    The dunes seems like a pretty special place to me. DNR does a lot of things that leave is scratching our heads, let's hope they manage this place properly.

      Im staying at Arrowwood July 2-5 and looking to catch some 'eyes for a fish fry or 2. Never been to the area before so I dont have much to go by other than my overall knowledge of Walleye fishing elsewhere. Ill probably be fishing early mornings and dusk for obvious reasons, but also because my boat will be used for the majority of the days for entertaining the girlfriends family. Im open to fishing not only Darling, but Carlos and Le Homme Dieu as well. 

      From what ive read and can see on Google Earth, the lakes are pretty clear, and from experience, usually means tough walleye fishing for this time of year. -I grew up fishing Woman Lake in the Longville/Hackensack area and that lake is as clear as they come. The only way we can snag some 'eyes in the summer is to fish the deep weed lines. Is that the approach I should be taking on these lakes? Does dragging rapalas across mid-lake flats produce? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Thanks,

      Gavin.

      Ha, I've read stories about that lake being filthy. And I know about those warnings on the link you posted I just wonder if this stuff is blown out of proportion. Reason being I can't find any confirmed cases of people having mercury poisoning from eating freshwater fish. I know mercury poisoning does exist but can we really get it from fish? You'd think if we could then there would be cases down south where folks are eating catfish from the Mississippi.    We ate a few 30+" Pike during the ice season, I ate more than my wife, and I only did that from lakes that are safer according to DNR and MDH fish tissue surveys. I kept it to once a week for her and I ate the rest. I went over the one meal a week rule several times for myself, but then went a while without taking home fish while the season was closed. I'm not glowing yet haha.    I also don't understand why walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat per those surveys when Pike are above them on the food chain.

      Surely they have a Terrova on the floor. Doesn't matter what size THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME. Also, boat dealers have showrooms with all kinds of stuff mounted on boats.
