Win or lose, I for one saw a good game. If you truely appreciate the game of baseball, you had to enjoy this game from a baseball fan point of view. From a Twins fan point of view, it could have been better. smirk.gif

You know its a bad season when all you can do is cheer against the team that knocked your team out of playoff contention.

Cheer against the Twins all you want Windy, maybe it will help you get over the painful season the White Sux just had.

Windy you may have your rebuttals, some long and some short but none are either well-written or constructive

No one is asking you to have the things 'dead on' because we all know that you are incapable of that. ... You have proven that time and again.

Anybody can get on and say things that are either encouraging or spiteful. However I don't want you to think that these message boards are the only positive means of communication out there. After all you 'live in the greatest city in the world' I would think you would have better things to do. I guess if it makes you feel better ,more power to you.

To bad the twins didnt win to today, instead of trolling on here you could have been trolling while fishing and had a post that was an actual contribution to the site.

I know I'll be watching my team tomorrow, where will yours be.

Its too bad they dont throw pitty parties for 3rd place teams. You and commanche jim could have gone and cried together.

The Twins didn't knock us our of playoff contention.......the A's knocked us out when they completed a sweep of us on Sept. 14, putting us 4 games back of the Twins.

I'm cheering for the team that knocked us out.

And Rundrave, didn't you constantly bash the White Sox last year and this year?

The pot calling the kettle black?

Windy, C'mon man... you know that stuff your spreading is just bad karma right?! I mean I expect C-Jim to do it, but I figured you'd came around to normalcy... tell me your just venting cuz your Sox were ousted and it still hurts and trying to inflict pain to Twins fans helps the healing process. As far as C-Jim goes... I'm sure he's also on a Detroit site so he can make these posts when they lose.

To be perfectly honest I think the Sox's knocked themselves out of the playoffs by playing only .448 ball over the last month, while the twins played .633 ball over the last month.

Call it what ever you want but your boys are at home and the Twins are still playing for the Championship. Nuff Said.

Like I said before buzz, there is something in the air around Chicago. It screws with your head. It makes pro baseball teams throw it down the toilet. It makes you proud to be Polish. It makes you go to other states to catch a fish. See, it's the air down there. We shouldn't jump on Windy and C-jim too badly. They have no control over their rants. It's in the air man.

Ok, we can jump all over em for being poor sports kinda like kindergarten girlies. What was I thinking? Give em heck.

Say what you want, but as Twins fans we should be a little upset that the organization didn't go out and get Thomas. Oakland got him for a steal at half a million dollars. I mean, so we got scared by his injuries, who cares? If he played half the season and had half as many RBIs and HRs he'd still be worth it. Or what if they signed him to a contract with conditionals...although him or his agent may be reluctant to sign, we could have at least offered it. I wasn't happy with that decision then and now it really puts the BIG HURT on us.

They didn't go get him for a reason. The dudes a head case. Sure he jacked two ding dongs today but that doesn't take away from the fact that he's a head case. That kind of poisen does not belong in the Twins clubhouse.

It was all about Frank Thomas in Chi-Town and soon it will be all about Frank Thomas in Oakland. He can't help it, it's in his nature as a completely selfish bast$$d.

Like I said in another post:

You guys can sure dish it out (Sux, chokers, underacheivers), I would surely expect you to take the abuse from Windy and I.

And like I said in another post, I'm actually pulling for you guys and the Twins............but after today, it's not looking too good.

Commanche,

Thanks for watching my back, right back at ya! Great catch on the A's stuff. I have always been a huge Frank Thomas fan. I thought it was time for him to go and I still think the Thome trade will prove to be the right move but I still am a huge Hurt fan. Hands down, the best pure power hitter in his first 10 years and still not bad. Also, I have always chided YO-Han since Twinkie fans have deemed him the greatest pitcher of all time. My comments are on record and I am sure you can all pull them up. I have always thought he was no where near as good as Twink fans make him out to be. Just my opinion. So naturally, you should have expected a post from the ole "wind bag" when The Big Hurt rode YO-Han like a rented mule today on the way to an A's victory.

YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD....YES! Windy

Commanche,

Just asking but what do you think the comments would have been like last year on this thread if our beloved Pale Hose had stumbled and actually lost a game or two in the playoffs or actually got the "beat down" put on them. Do you think the Twinkie fans would have sat idly by and congratulated us on winning the division but not the whole enchilada??? Just a thought, we will never know how they would have reacted....YEA RIGHT! Windy

Jim,

We can't take it? Where have you been? You went from July 10th until Sept. 25th without a post to the baseball forum, completely missing the fun of the 2nd half free fall by your club. But now you want us to take it from you because of all the shots we gave you and Windy. If I am not mistaken Windy was the only one here to take those shots.

Oh, by the way, here are some examples of the shots Twins fans took at you guys during the playoffs last year.

Congrats. - from Willy

Congrats to Windy and Comancho. - Crappieflop1212

First off congrats go out to the sox and all their fans.- from rundrave

Congrats on the victory to the Sox - fishyguy

I for one am a diehard twins fan and would never ever ever ever think of chearing for or congratulating any other team(except for the padres, and not when their playing the twins in the series..long story), especially the whitesox. I hated the fact that they won the whole thing last year and I am happy that it was clearly a fluke. Why would windy and jim or any other sux fan cheer for or congratulate the twins and there fans?? thats crazy, there sux fans.

Frank thomas killed us today, and Bonser better figure out a way to get him out tommorrow, I have faith that he will. If we can contain him we will run away with the next three games.

GO TWINS!

Big Island,

I got to tip my cap to you. Now there is a man with a firm grip on reality. It's all good! I like your style. Take it like a man and give it like a man and while we are at it...

WALK LIKE A MAN (pardon my Frankie Valli-ism) MAN LAW! Windy

Fishy,

Believe me, I was hiding from you guys earlier in the year because I had a feeling of where the Sox would be in October. My feelings were correct.

Getting back to the bashing of the Sox......with some of the posts you found from last year.......what else could you guys have said? White Sox Suck? White Sox are cheaters? White Sox are chokers? We won the whole thing. You guys couldn't bash them anymore. You couldn't justify it anymore. So the tails went between the legs and you congratulated.............And that's exactly what I will do if the Twins can pull this off.

Windy,

If the Sox lost last year, we'd still be hearing about it.

I really hope we get back there next year, because I'm VERY jealous right now watching the playoffs.

Why don't you stop into The Point on Sunday. $25 buffet starting a half hour before the game and ends when the game ends......includes domestic bottles, drafts, and well drinks...........plus the food. This week: 1st half will have wings, nachos, chili (I think), and the 2nd half will have ribs, our famous mac and cheese, mashed potatoes and maybe chicken vesuvio.

We had 52 people do the buffet this past weekend. It's catching on. And of course, you don't have to participate.

And most likely, next Friday, we're starting our Friday Fish Fry...........

Have you been to the remodeled place yet?

Jim,

No issues really with you coming in here and taking your shots but if you come in swinging and throwing punches don't sit there and call us out or tell us we can't take it when we swing back. At least we are here and not hiding at the first sign of trouble.

      Thanks for the info!!! Will be up there on 10/5-10/8, have been looking at the weather and I hope they are wrong because looks like rain... Have you ever tried fishing out on pike island area? Brother inlaw drove down there this summer and said there were quiet a few people fishing there.

    • Minnesota motorists can support conservation with a new critical habitat plate featuring a wild turkey.
      The new plate displays a colorful tom turkey and is the ninth critical habitat plate offered. Other plates display a moose, loon, pheasant, chickadee, showy lady’s slipper, a fishing scene and two with white-tailed deer. There is also a specialty license plate for state parks and trails.

      “Wild turkey restoration in Minnesota is one of our great conservation success stories,” said Kim Hennings, wildlife land acquisition coordinator. “The critical habitat plates are a great way for motorists to show their interest and support for Minnesota’s fish and wildlife resources.”

      Wild turkeys are native to southeastern Minnesota, but disappeared by 1880 because of habitat loss and unregulated hunting. Successful reintroduction efforts starting in the 1970s led to turkeys now living over a wide range of Minnesota.

      “The wild turkey critical habitat plate has been long awaited for by our membership in Minnesota and turkey hunting enthusiasts,” said Tom Glines, National Wild Turkey Federation regional director. “We love the wild turkey resource and want to do everything we can do to keep wild turkey populations healthy and thriving.”

      The Minnesota Legislature created the critical habitat license plate program in 1995 to provide additional opportunity for Minnesotans to contribute toward conservation. Motorists who purchase a critical habitat plate pay a $10 initial fee, plus a minimum annual contribution of $30 to the Reinvest in Minnesota (RIM) program. Every dollar generated through the sale of the license plate is matched with private donations of cash or land. The annual $30 contribution is not tax deductible.

      Critical habitat license plate revenue has generated more than $59 million to acquire or improve 22,000 acres of critical habitat and helped fund non-game wildlife research and surveys, habitat enhancement and educational programs. Information about the program and details about how to order plates are available on the DNR website at www.mndnr.gov/plates.

      The new license plates are now available at deputy registrar offices statewide. For questions about ordering critical habitat license plates, call the Department of Public Safety-Driver and Vehicle Services at 612-297-3166.

    • The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources recently honored two youths for their outstanding conservation efforts during a ceremony at the 2016 Minnesota State Fair.

      Eliza Sankovitz from Waseca in Waseca County received the 4-H award and Melissa Schilling from Frazee in Becker County received the Future Farmers of America (FFA) award.

      The DNR Commissioner’s Youth Awards are given annually to an FFA student and 4-H member who have demonstrated initiative, leadership, creativity and achievement in conservation and wise use of natural and agricultural resources. This is the 25th year of the award program.

      Curious about the quality of the water in Clear Lake, Eliza Sankovitz asked the question, “What pollutants might be entering the lake?” This was the beginning of Sankovitz’s 4-H project titled “How Clear is Clear Lake.” Sankovitz found three locations around Clear Lake and took water samples after rain events. She then tested the water samples for bacteria, nitrates, chlorine, lead and pesticides. Sankovitz said she did find some pollutants entering the lake.

      Sankovitz is the daughter of Tom and Gretchen Sankovitz.

      Schilling grew up on a farm in rural Becker County. As a member of her FFA Fish and Wildlife Management team, she placed as top individual multiple times at regional competitions. Schilling also placed first in her area and third at state in the Minnesota Senior Envirothon.

      As a member of the Youth Conservation Corps, Schilling worked at the Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge. While on the job, she assisted with prairie restoration, bird surveys, goose banding, invasive species control and refuge facility maintenance. Schilling is currently enrolled at the University of Minnesota Crookston, and is pursuing a degree in wildlife management.

      Schilling is the daughter of Charles and Regina Schilling.

      I am sure Johnny P is all booked up on weekends by now and for some reason some of the guys don't like sleeper houses all though I may push for it this year last year was such a hassle packing everything up for the night loading the trucks having to bring sleds and wheelers. I much rather bring my flasher couple rods and lots of beer. I go fishing enough running and gunning its nice to have a break where you just show up and fish.

      Yes, he probably is.  I book with him early.  I think that he offers guide service in December up until he opens the sleepers up.  Might align with your portables.

    • I was on Namakan yesterday and kept 4 eyes 14" to 15" caught in under 20' of water. Water temp is 60. I was rigging with a half crawler. However, I had friends out using jigs and minnows in 40+ ft and they did well. He said he found a school and using his I Pilot just hovered over the top of them. So it seems the fish are scattered and all methods are working.

      I hope this weekend is better than last!!  I know there is a  lot of ducks around but they have so many places to hide.

    • If you want to stay away from the crowd I would suggest Beacon Harbor I think after jan 1st they don't allow day passes its only beacon harbor and outdoor authority who have houses there. Then they allow only a limited amount of yearly passes.

      Now they don't have all the bells and whistles like a bar and food ect but John and Ann are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. Not to mention I personally think it is some of the best.

       

      Now if you needed a bar and food and all that my choices would be Rogers or Westwind

      Today was the complete opposite of yesterday. The current coming out of light house gap made a pocket of clear water out in the lake overnight, fished right on the edge of the muddy water in 14 feet of water and went through 3 bags of frozen shiners and caught a bunch on plastics after the minnows were gone. Nothing fantastic for size, only 3 in the slot but nice limits of 14-17 inchers and a ton of smaller fish. Once that muddy water gets blown out or clears up the bite is going to be crazy good!
