Didn't many of you say the BIG SKIRT was a bum?

Commanche Jim

I remember all the smack talk last year about Big Frank, one of my favorite players..............

There were many names that were thrown out there like "The Big Skirt"

My question is this......

What do you call him now?

The Big "Hurt"

The Big "Twin Killer"

The Big "Hurt-Yo-Han"

The Big "That's Gotta Hurt"

The Big "The Twins lost the series because our pitchers were HURT"

The Big "Commanche Jim said some very nasty things and I was very very HURT"

I know, I know................it's not over yet.

For the good of the central, at least don't get swept.

You're a real classy fan,

You can come here and talk smack all you want, but the truth is you have been owned by the Twins basically since 2002.

You had a good season last year and when it ended, many of the people here congratulated you and Windy, now you wanna come in here and gloat because the team that eliminated your underachievers got beat.

Anyway, I am watching a playoff game tomorrow(or at least listening) and you and the Sux are crying in your beers.

Wonder what game you will have on about 12:00 in your bar tomorrow? confused.gif

That's right, the Central div. champion Twins.

Wow, touche'...........

The Sux.....the White Sox bashing, the chokers, the underacheivers......the hateful words toward the Sox, me, and Windy over the past year and a half. laugh.gif

If you can dish it out, I would at least expect you to take it.

I am, in a way, pulling for you guys and your Twins. But after today, it doesn't look really good.

I don't remember anyone else's bashing, but I admit I did and I do remember Jim's story about meeting Frank and all.

And I'm sure he misses ol' Frank like lots of other Wsox fans and probably some of his teammates, but the A's sure are glad to have him this year.

I would not be pitchin' much to him in close games that's for sure. He commands a lttle more respect after his season comeback and especially after today.

Geno,

Thanks for watching Jimbo's back. We never bashed Big Frank as he was a favorite on the south side for years and even if we did it would be like in Animal House when Boone and Otter were talking about their pledges..."They can't do that to our pledges...Only WE can do that to our pledges". Great flick. Windy

Indeed a great flick, Windy.

Last night I saw some blurb on the sportsnews that Frank is now one of the oldest to homer. Couldn't hear it all, so I don't know if it was homer twice or in playoffs/series or what, but anyway, he is now in select company of Babe Ruth and, egad, Larry Walker?????

Here is a paste off Fox just for Windy and Jim as a reminder of what all the Twinkie fans are saying :

"Posted: 15 hours ago

Frank Thomas' old team is home for the postseason."

After going hitless the entire series, leaving all those runners on base and having one great series against Detroit.

Just wanted to see if there was still room on the Frank Thomas bandwagon?

Just can't bring myself to bash him for a bad series after the season he had. Certainly did not clutch but either did his teammates.

But let me just say that his out to end that playoff game with the basesloaded and down by 3 really put a big Hurt on the A's fans. Nyuk, nyuk.

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
