Commanche Jim

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

11 posts in this topic

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.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?
