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.

      Caught 17 walleyes on Friday, but all were dinks except for two 15".  Caught 6 more Saturday, all small again except for one 16".  Also caught a 12 inch perch, 3 eelpout, and 2 tulibee. Considering the snowstorm prediction for Sunday, I pulled my house off the lake and parked it back in the garage for the season.  LOW next week, then onto lakers the following weekend.

      I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday. I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday.

      Went out to Otter Lake (next to Bald Eagle) on Wednesday, a lake filled with hammerhandles and could barely make out three small pike in the dirty water before giving up.  Was up on a lake in the Horseshoe chain that is also supposed to be filled with small pike and saw zero but the wife caught a small on a tip-up.  At least a big catfish came in and sat at the bottom of the hole for well over an hour.

      That’s a bucket list trip for me.  No reason that I haven’t been there yet outside of the fact it isn’t in my normal territory.  And that’s an ironic statement for me to make! Come to think of it, I should just plan it and go.  It’ll never happen otherwise.  Anybody got any pointers for heading that direction?  I wouldn’t even know where to start.  Pretty self sufficient for gear and travel and could figure it out eventually but a helping hand or even a guide reference would be appreciated.

      The ice is gone now. More than likely won't be anymore this year.

       that reminds me the batteries on that GPS tracker hid somewhere on your truck are running low. The red blinking light on the base unit here at home, sure has been annoying. Can't believe it showed you were out fishing in the wind, close to home anyway, today.

      Upper Red nears record winter harvest Ice fishing on Upper Red Lake has slowed in recent weeks, but the walleye harvest is on track to set or approach a wintertime record, numbers from an annual winter creel survey show. According to Henry Drewes, regional fisheries supervisor for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in Bemidji, anglers through January had kept about 125,000 pounds of walleyes. The wintertime high for Minnesota's portion of the lake was slightly more than 140,000 pounds in 2015, DNR statistics show. Anglers harvested 109,327 pounds of walleyes in the winter of 2017, according to DNR creel survey results. "If we have an average February, we'll be right in that area" of 140,000 pounds, Drewes said. "Catch rates and pressure have really tapered off in the last (few weeks). I think that's related to winter fatigue and a slower bite." Wheel houses, which have exploded in popularity among winter anglers in recent years, now account for more than 80 percent of the ice fishing pressure on Upper Red, Drewes said. Anglers on Upper Red can keep four walleyes, of which only one can be longer than 17 inches. Walleye and northern pike season on Upper Red and other Minnesota inland waters closes Sunday, Feb. 25 and reopens Saturday, May 12. The Minnesota DNR manages 48,000 acres of Upper Red, while the remaining 72,000 acres are within the boundary of the Red Lake Indian Reservation and managed by the Red Lake Band of Chippewa. -- Brad Dokken Grand Forks Herald
