Even though the Twins lost what an entertaining game.. Don't ever count the Twins out they own the last 3 innings of a ball game and can make a comeback. I think these last few games are just setting us up for the playoffs, This should be a fun time for any baseball fan even Windy should enjoy the ride.. Go Twins grin.gif

Bobby Bass,

I'm lovin the preview so far. You will have to see some of my posts to other threads in here. What are your fans thinking? The colons are really kinking up there in Twinkie ville. Some of the guys are saying the Twinks should sit Mauer so he can BACK INTO THE TITLE!!! What a bunch of weenies. Take it the way you have been taking it all year, or at least after you started 12 games under! They look like a team that has forgotten how to play the game. Let Mauer take his 4 or 5 AB's tomorrow and EARN the title. As far as letting guys rest...Hey, my beloved Pale Hose will get plenty of rest after tomorrow and if the Twinks don't turn this around they will be joining my boys in about a week after that!!! Just my .02 Windy

Bobby,

You see what I mean, a little testastarone goes along way. Good things happen when you go for it! Mauer played, didn't sit it out the way some posters on here wanted him to and look what happened. Twinks win, Kitties lose in extra so Mauer goes 2-4 and wins the title while the Twinks win the division. Has to be one of the biggest crashes in history. Mood is probably as low in Motown as it is high in Twinkie-ville. Pretty calm here in the Windy. We are observers this year instead of participants though it is about 45 minutes from kick off for my beloved Bears....DA BEARS! Windy

biggest crashes in history??? You bet!! And the Twins went past not one, but two teams with a big crash!! Both the White Sox and Tigers owned a +10 game lead on the Twins in late AUG. That spells double crash, and the biggest modern day baseball comeback in history, becasue the Twins passed two GREAT teams, not just one. You would think that with 2 teams in front of the Twins and each playing each other about 30 times, (Tigers/ Sox. Tigers/Twins. Sox/Twins) being 10 out it would be nearly impossible with teams beating each other up,, but the Twins proved otherwise and this should go down in MLB history as not only one of the biggest chokes ever, but likely two, casue without the WC, the Tigers would replace the 69' Cubs and 64' Phils as the master choke artist. MY GOODNESS, think about that for a sec!!! and than fact that Detriot lost it's last FIVE games of the year and last 3 agst the supposed worst team in baseball!!!!,,, and the Tigers led KC 5-0 on FRI and 6-0 on SUN,,, only to lose both games plus the Sat game. WAY TO GO KC!!!!!

PLAYOFFS!!! Again? ho-hum this is getting tiresome-- division champs 4 out of 5 years ho-hum.... grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif The GM and manager and staff deserve a lot of credit fot consistent winning like that. They just seem to know talent and how to develop it in the minors. GOOD JOB!!!!

NOW... if Silva can pitch in the playoffs like his last one, and Radke can keep his arm on a couple more weeks, and Santana can avoid a long ball, and Bonzer can keep em in the ballpark..... should be FUN!!! wink.gif

You have a lot of "ifs" in that last post. Here's another "if"....

If my grandma had a "johnson" she would be my grandpa!

Have to edit this post alittle:

In re: to Ring/Zing:

Ol' Windmaster, as a DJ, you know what I gotta add-

"But that was yesterday, and yesterday's gone!"

In re: to "johnson":

Windy, you are using that out of context on Soldon. Your "joke" is usable for past events and "if only...." like when you think "if only the WSox had not given up 2 weeks ago", but Soldon is wishing on future playoff events so we will see who has the "johnson" - your grandma or his.

NOW onto some serious baseball while I erase the collapse in '69 being the worst ever in my memory banks --- THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU K.C. (and Tigers too)!

Buzzy - I am trying bud, but backing into the post season and losing what 9 of your last 11 games is tough to get amped up for. Our bullpen is in shambles.. Everyone I know is picking San Diego and rightly so they have good starting pitching and the 3rd rated bullpen in the major leagues. Will see what happens this afternoon.

Keep living in the past. Other than last year your team has been dominated by the Twins. Beeooootch would be a good word to describe them. Another one would be chokers!

You don't get a trophy, a ring, the "World Champions" label and a 2 million person ticker tape parade for winning the division.

Commanche,

Maybe they do get a ticket tape parade in Twinkie Town for just winning the division. Not much else going on there. Certainly nothing to speak of from the Queens! High five me on DA BEARS! Windy

I don't know if Twinkieville or anyone can ever match the ticker tape the Sox had last year. I just don't know if anyone will ever have the opportunity to save up 100 years of confetti again.

CNY,

If you can't hit a good man when he's down, when can you. Besides, Geno is probably bubbling over with new found confidence now that his beloved Cubbies are on a new course to victory. Dump McPhail, Dump Dusty, Dump Dump Dump and WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR. GO GO GO Joe, Girardi He's our man if he can't do it....WAIT TILL THE NEXT YEAR!

Congrats on dumping the Pads. Nice! Good luck, wouldn't mind seeing the Red Birds take the whole enchilada. I was always a huge Tony The Tiger fan, Windy

Yes Tim, Windy is a master at deflection.

Don't think I didn't notice what you did Windy. Rather than respond directly about the WSox drought, you chose to move the discussion off your team and towards mine - smooth!

Ta da dump, ta da dump, ta da dump, dump, dump!

      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.
