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.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.
    • Sushilicious
      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.

      Ive had the same issue.  I turned both the motor and remote of for 30 seconds or so and then worked fine.  it has happened twice for me.  Hope its not reoccurring which would be very annoying.  For the cost,  this stuff should work.  I wonder if they are I-link motors?  Mine is.
