Goooosssshhh darnit!!!! Here I am checking out posts and stuff, all the while the Twins make a comeback and win! Here it is, end of the 8th, Twins down 1-0 and I leave to check out the forums. And what's worse....my wife doesn't even tell me of the comeback! GRRRRRR!

Oh well, at least they won. Plus, they'll replay it tomorrow so I can set the VCR and record it.

Just a testament to the makeup of this team. The fact that Radke even makes it out there to pitch seems to me beyond the realm of possibility; better yet Radke has a strong outing. I don't even want to hear anybody try to minimize his effort because we are playing the Royals. You know Radke would have pitched left-handed if that's what it would have come to.

DOwn here in IOwa-- the games don't come in so well, especially late in the year with the loss of daylight, but tonight was a treat laying on the couch listning to CCO' and Gordo. Even after Hudson pitched lights out for 7 innings,(don't let anybody tell you the Royals are a bad team, they have a better record since the ALL Star break then the freakin CARDS)) you had a idea the TWins would still win. Even more so when Rincon got out of bases loaded, NO OUTs , jam in the top of the 9th.

I have heard GORDO call many big wins for the TWINS... --- PIERsynski's insurance shot agst the A's in 02',, Guzman's BUNT HR IN 2003, but last night's call with that high pitched voice going totally nuts with Mauers' HR, was the best so far. Hopefully he's got a few more in the postseason--- Here's a DRIVE,,, LEFT FIELD,, IT's GOT CHANCE---- (Gladden in the background going,, "GET UP- GET UP!!!)) GONE.... HR JOE MAUER!!!!! OHHH MYY!!! TOUCH' EM ALL!!!!! JOE MAUER!!!

One of most spectacular comebacks in sports history--- even if the Twins do nothing in the playoffs. They have passed the World Champs who they trailed by 10 games in June and tied the run-away train who some people thought would win close to 110 games. All this with one stud Starting pitcher and a makeshift rotation that includes guys that started the season in A ball or AA. AWESOME!!!!

I was crying "FOUL" last night. Twins get two on and KC walks the next guy to load 'em up for the number nine hitter. Looking decent. I go to the stats and the guy has a .313 average!!! That's not fair. My tigers don't have a .313 anywhere in the order and you guys got one batting ninth.

Nice win. Will Chicago play tough or roll over? Can the tigers go the season with only one loss to KC?

Good luck.

I think the Sox will play tough. They aren't going to lie down for the hated Twins.. Same with KC against Detroit. Play the spoiler role.

That was one of the best games I have ever watched, just as I was bichin about how the Twins have no killer instinct when the door was left open two consecutive nights and how it seems they are going to settle for the wild card...bam! Mauer baby. And how about Bartlett? That was pressure there, and he tagged the ball! There are at least 3 ways to make an out in that situation without scoring a run.

I agree with Stratos. Sox and Royals have had horribly disappointing seasons. If I was a Sox or Royals pitcher I think I just might be looking to end my season with about a dozen a strikeout performance. And maybe an 0-fer night for the batting Prince. smirk.gif

That was an exciting game last night. I'm down in Iowa too. Sweetie took the XM receiver out of her car and left it for me last night so I could hear the Twins. She's a good girl.

I only got a chance to watch a bit here and there last night, and got frustrated at how the Twins batters made the KC pitchers look like Cy Young. Got to watch the bottom of the 9th though. Mauer was just clutch. Still need to win out to have a chance. Hope it keeps going tonight.

I take it then you plan to win the weekly bet this week? Personally, I like your chances on this week Buzzsaw, but for the sake of the avatar I'll say "Go Bills".

Awesome...simply awesome. It was just the momentum they needed to carry them into the final series with the Sux.

I was also at the game last night. Brad pitched great. Actually looked pretty tough out there.

After Mauer hit that homerun, you knew the Twins were gonna win the game. You could literally feel it swing the Twins way.

This has been a special season and one that fans should not take for granted.

Best thing - These guys are all relative newbies to the MLB. We will be tough for years.

      Have heard of very few.  An occasional rainbow (looper and steelhead, make sure to learn the difference) mixed in with the catch in Two Harbors, along with lake trout near the bottom on the right day.  I've seen a few cruising under the ice in McQuade, but pretty slow there.  Rainbow action will pick up as spring progresses.

      Spring turkey hunters hoping to bag a tom during the first two weeks of the season have until Friday, Jan. 26, to apply for a lottery permit. The season runs from April 18 to May 31 and is divided into six hunt periods, A through F (see table below). Hunt A and B licenses for firearms hunters age 18 and older are limited in availability and assigned via lottery drawing. Turkey lottery applications cost $5 and can be purchased online at mndnr.gov/licenses, by phone at 888-665-4236, or in person from a license agent. Successful applicants will receive a postcard in the mail by mid-February and can purchase their hunting license starting March 1. Firearms licenses for hunts C, D, E and F are not lottery-limited and will be available for purchase over-the-counter beginning March 1. All licensed turkey hunters can participate in Hunt F if they have an unused tag from one of the earlier hunt periods. Archery and youth hunters (under 18) are exempt from the lottery and may purchase a spring turkey license valid during all hunt periods, including hunts A and B. Surplus lottery licenses from hunts A and B, if available, will be sold over-the-counter starting in mid-March. Visit mndnr.gov/hunting/turkey for more information about turkey hunting in Minnesota. 2018 Spring Turkey Hunt Periods
      Hunt A: April 18 – 24
      Hunt B: April 25 – May 1
      Hunt C: May 2 – 8
      Hunt D: May 9 – 15
      Hunt E: May 16-22
      Hunt F: May 23-31 Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Youth and adults can learn to hunt turkeys this April with experienced volunteers who will cover safe hunting techniques, how to call-in turkeys, hunting tactics and field dressing a bird. “We teach the skills and techniques that allow new turkey hunters to become lifelong hunters,” said Mike Kurre, learn-to-hunt program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “This has been a successful program and as a bonus, we love hearing how former participants go full circle to teach others how to hunt.” Participants can apply through Monday, Feb. 12. The hunts are Saturday, April 21, and Sunday, April 22, and provide opportunities to access locations that may otherwise be closed to hunting. “We get volunteers from the National Wild Turkey Federation and this is the 16th year we’ve cooperated for these hunts,” Kurre said. “Over the years we’ve introduced more than 5,000 people to these hunting experiences. We also work with the Minnesota National Guard to get military adults and their families into turkey hunting.” Details about how to apply and costs to participate are available at mndnr.gov/turkeyhunt. A pre-hunt orientation is required and all participants will need to have a valid firearms safety certificate or its equivalent. Youth must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Overall participation in the hunts is restricted by the number of volunteers and private lands that are available. Anyone interested in providing turkey hunting land for the mentored youth hunts should contact the Keith Carlson, Save the Habitat Save the Hunt coordinator for the National Wild Turkey Federation in Minnesota at kcanoka@comcast.net.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Gov. Mark Dayton has proclaimed Jan. 20-28 as Snowmobile Safety Awareness Week in Minnesota. This an opportunity for the Department of Natural Resources, volunteer safety instructors, the Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association (MNUSA) and its 250 member snowmobile clubs to join together to recognize the importance of safe, responsible snowmobiling. “It’s a fun and exciting activity, but snowmobilers should always remember to make safety a top priority,” said Conservation Officer Bruce Lawrence, DNR recreational vehicle coordinator. “They should also always use common sense and keep a clear head when riding.” Here are some other key safety points: Snowmobiling and alcohol don’t mix – don’t drink and ride. Smart riders are safe riders – take a snowmobile safety training course. Always wear a helmet and adequate clothing. When night riding slow down – expect the unexpected. Know before the ride  – always check local trail and ice conditions. Cross with care. Know risks and be prepared – make every trip a round trip. One is the loneliest number – never ride alone. Ride safe, stay on the trail – respect private property. To legally ride a snowmobile in Minnesota, residents born after Dec. 31, 1976 need a valid snowmobile safety certificate. Options for both classroom and online classes can be found at http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/safety/vehicle/snowmobile/index.html People can find Minnesota snowmobiling events and activities on the MNUSA webpage: https://mnsnowmobiler.org/get-involved/mnusa/events.
