Not to create any problems, but reality check here:

The Twins can now be compared to the Buffalo Bills or the Atlanta Braves in a way.

Can't win the big one........... 4 of last 5 years to the playoffs and not even a world series appearance.

Not good.

totaly agree with you on that, its really bad if you look at it. Yeah you make it to the playoff's 4 of the last 5 years but dont do crap once you get there. I look at it this way, its a Minnesota sports team they get you all pumped up for the playoff's then all of a sudden they rip your heart out and I am use to this by now.

I was talking to a friend about this. We have a great time all year and cheer and love all of their accomplishments. They win a big series or even the division or confrence. That is where they have looked and prepared for. Period. The teams and players "Dream" of the post season, but they are relatively in awe of being there. It also rips my heart out when I am passionate about the year and nothing more comes out. I also want to say that even though we are not players, the fans have a similar feeling or emotion when our "guys" are on the field.

Yes, someone on another thread pointed out that the Twins were in a rebuilding year and still wasted the sox in the standings.

Wild and Commanche,

Well said. I think the Twinks new nick name should be

The One and Done Fun Club. And Geno, just getting to the dance don't mean you are leaving with the prom queen. We got ours last year, we got the prom queen's panties, if you know what I mean. The Twinks have had to go home from 5 dances now with Rosie Palm and her 5 sisters! Better luck next year Twinks, you are in the same dung heap as the Cubbies and Sox are for 2006, misery loves company. |

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

Windy, Windy, oh so windy....

I'll take an invitation over being ignored anyday. Last year's dance ended a long time ago - so stop dreamin' about it - when the WSox got close, the queen put on the ol' safety belt, if YOU know what I mean, and when the WSox found out, they slithered away into losers territory without putting up a fight. It was the Twins who never gave up and deserve the Division Champ title they took away while your guys were dreaming about the queen. Ozzie and the guys must have been thinkin' with the wrong, what did you call it, johnsomething, while the Twins thought about how to get invited to this year's dance.

I love the way that you and Windy talk to everyone. Like some old vets of baseball powerhouses. Please remeber that although we have not made a World Series in our last four playoff tries we have won 2 World Series in our last 6 tries. Would you like to discuss any further the title runs of you Sox since the early 1900's?

The Sox had an amazing run last year but if they can't back that up with more playoff appearances and more titles they were nothing more than this centuries title and the new cry will be wait until 2106.

You guys are kind of like the kids in high school who missed every dance because they couldn't find a date and then finally at the senior prom, everything fell into place. The good looking jocks were gone, the chaperones weren't looking, and your internet date was a little tipsy. Next thing you know, you finally make the score. Now you want to tell everyone what ladies men you are.

Well said fishyguy! I too am sad that the twins season is over, but just look at the young nucleus they have to build from! The twins have always been a smart business team by not selling there future for the present. Year in and year out the twins will always be making some noise and eventually the will get a title for #7 and the rest of the stallions! Maybe next year somebody could turn the lights on in the cellar for Windy and Jim because that is where his SUX will be! wink.gif

I know its hard for white sox fans, after all they win the series and are still 2nd fiddle to the cubs in chicago.

How is it not a dissapointment....errrr CHOKE that the White Sox not only win the series, but greatly improve their team in the following offseason, and end up 3rd in a division and not in playoffs, cant wait for the series to be over this year so fellow sox fans canstop playing the world series trump card.

      Managed a 17 and 22 incher while slip bobbering with leeches on a 21 foot reef. Hope the success continues.

      Looks like weather has finally calmed down.  Are they getting fish on the riggers also?
    • JBMasterAngler
      I don't. However, in the rare instance that I'm not catching trout near the surface, I'll use small flicker shads or shad raps.

      Been working on the double and triple retrieves. Finn is starting to get the bumper I send him to get, but he likes to get the closest one.

      A portion of one of the last and largest wooded areas in Dakota County has been permanently protected as a state wildlife management area through the collaborative efforts of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, Dakota County and the nonprofit conservation group Friends of the Mississippi River.  Photo courtesy of Tom Reiter for Friends of the Mississippi River The new Hampton Woods Wildlife Management Area consists of 191 acres of oak forest that will be managed by the DNR for wildlife habitat and public hunting. Located about four miles east of Farmington off state Hwy. 50, it’s the only forest for miles around in a largely agricultural landscape. The area is home to a number of rare species such as the red-shouldered hawk, as well as more common game species including deer, turkeys and squirrels. Each spring, the forest floor blossoms with wildflowers. First identified by the DNR as an ecologically significant area worthy of protection in the mid-1990s, Hampton Woods also was ranked highly in Dakota County’s 2002 Farmland and Natural Areas Protection Plan. A few years ago, Friends of the Mississippi River helped several landowners contact the county to discuss the potential sale of their land. After purchasing 24 acres from Joan Uselmann and Mary and Glen Bakalars, and 167 acres from the estate of Rose Kuntz, Dakota County recently transferred ownership to the DNR. “This is a beautiful area of Dakota County that will now be preserved and publicly accessible for future generations,” said Dakota County Board of Commissioners Chairman Mike Slavik, who represents the district where the new WMA is located. “Many people and organizations made this possible, and we are very thankful for their many contributions and collaboration.” DNR regional wildlife manager Cynthia Osmundson praised the partnership that protected the area. “This new WMA is especially important because it not only protects an important and relatively rare forest area, it also provides close-to-home public hunting opportunities in the metro region,” she said. “Transactions like this can be complex and drawn out, and we’re very fortunate to have good partners like Dakota County and Friends of the Mississippi River.” The acquisition was paid for with $540,800 from the Outdoor Heritage Fund, as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature, and $197,700 in Dakota County funds. The Outdoor Heritage Fund was created in 2008 when Minnesota voters passed a constitutional amendment dedicating a portion of sales taxes to restore, protect, and enhance fish and wildlife habitat. Friends of the Mississippi River also has received a $133,000 grant from the Environment and Natural Resource Trust Fund, as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources, to conduct management activities in the WMA, such as removal of non-native invasive species like buckthorn. Friends of the Mississippi River previously developed a natural resource management plan for the site with financial assistance from the Minnesota Ornithologists’ Union, Southern Dakota County Sportsmen’s Club, Wild Turkey Federation, Hastings Environmental Protectors, Winter Wheat Foundation, and Pheasants Forever – Dakota Ringnecks Chapter.

      Was up Tuesday until this morning (Frazer / Smart Bay) and wow was the walleye fishing slow for me. Was out Wednesday / Thursday mornings from 7:30-10:00 ish and nary a walleye bite in all my usual spots. Tried a bit in the afternoons as well, but not too serious.    Hope everyone else is having better luck!!

      Getting these big fish back in the water as soon as possible is important in summer heat.

      Thanks guys! JB-how do you get the Mepps down deep?

      I know its not attached to you. But the issue is with it being attached to the dog and if its running full speed and it gets caught on something. The injuries can occur when its a sudden stop and the collar around the neck is pulled hard from the weight of the dog.   Sounds like to you need to get back to the basics with the check cord and get back to sit, stay and come. You can work her with the check cord in a hallway at home with the doors closed, then move to a larger  grassy area etc. Keep the sessions short and praise, praise and praise some more when she comes back when called.   You never want to give a command you cant enforce and that's where the check cord comes in handy. We have all been there before. But if your not confident with her in the water next to a road you need to go back and revisit those commands and how to enforce them until she is ready. its just not worth risking injury.   You have to make the retrieving fun and if she doesn't bring it back your done for that session, and then she doesn't get to retrieve. Let her see you put the dummy away and then start another session at a later time. Praise, praise and praise when she does it correctly.   Dogs will pick up on your body language frustrations etc.  Just takes lots of reps and keep them short and be positive and she will get there.

      I actually don't have that long leash attatched to me. Its 100' I believe and the only reason I leave it on her is because Round Lake is right by a busy road so if she wants to bolt after a rabbit or something I can quickly grab that leash. Also sometimes she'll grab the dummy and want to swim around with it so I give a few tugs to let her know her job is to bring it to me, not swim in circles. It's just a safety measure because she isn't quite ready for fully off leash training just yet. I almost never actually need to grab it.    Thanks for the advice though, the last thing I'd ever want to do is hurt a dog, especially mine. I never throw the dummy past where it's safe to walk so if she did get it wrapped in cattails or something and got stuck I'd quickly get her.
