Congratulations!!!!!!!! The Cards definitely deserved to win it, they played better. However...... don't forget to send a THANK-YOU CARD to detroit. I've never seen a team play so bad and out of character..... since the Twins against Oakland..... confused.gifwink.gif Other guys have said it before... you never know in baseball! so true! Enjoy your year!!!

Greatest line I ever heard spoken about sports came from an old Hockey cosch down a road a bit from me, here in Lansing, MI. Talking about Ron Mason, from MSU. He always said, when you get in the playoffs, "it's not how good you are -- it's how good you play."

Great day to be a Cardinal fan!!! I've been waiting for this for a long time. The last time the Cards won the World Series, I was 11 years old. Now they win again when my daughter is 11. I remember game 7 of the 1982 Series well. It was a school night and the folks wouldn't let me stay up to watch the end of the game. I snuck out of bed and found the transistor radio and listened to it quietly under the sheets. It was hard not to yell and scream. So last night, the kids got to stay up late and watch 'em finish it and there was plenty of yelling and screaming going on.

I really didn't care who won. I just wanted to see a good series. I thought it was boring and painful to watch to be honest. I think that was the cards 10th title or something. Kinda like the yankees winnning it. I don't like cards dirty manger, overrated Rolen and was kinda hoping ALbert would be like Bonds and never get a ring. Dang maybe i was rooting for the tigers shocked.gif

But they are the champs and they earned it. Congrads cards fans!

Gonna have to return that backhand from Outdoor with this forehand:

I did not think it was a boring series at all.

I had picked the Tigers based on their rest, age, season record, pitching, and homefield. But I was always afraid of the Card lineup. I knew those guys were good, and they proved it.

Congrats to the Cards and their fans.

Thanks guys like I always said your a classy bunch. Watched the game again and ordered my world series wardrobe this morning, man is that stuff expensive, but hey it's been 24 years what the hey... I remember in 1982 when I graduated High School and went down to the local Pipe & Tobacco in Pittsfield, MA where I was born and raised and had a custom tee-shirt made on a red shirt with white lettering on the front and that gaudy block lettering was ST. LOUIS CARDINALS and on the back it said WORLD SERIES CHAMPS 1982. That shirt I had for about 15 years until it just went through the wash one to many times and was shredded. I always wondered if I would ever get another... Thanks to a Cardinal team that was fundementally sound except for Dunc who get's a pass because it's his first year in the outfield. They were lucky enough to do all the little things well and come together at the right time and I am proud of em.

outdoor ran - Relax buddy your Brewers will be back.. laugh.gif The series MVP David Eckstein didn't exactly make a boat load of cash in his last contract and even though Albert did, he's deserved every penny for carrying the team on his back for 90% of the regular season.

Detroit has nothing to be ashamed of they just weren't ready and neither were we in 2004. They will be hungry next season and will be determined and I think the rest of the central better watch out. Class Manager and a great organization, itwas a pleasure to play the AL Champs and I have nothing but respect and believe me I am humbled by all of this...

      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?
