Like I've been saying, the luck would run out for Grossman and the OVERRATED Bears! The Dolphins are supposed to be one of the worst teams in the league, much Like Arizona!! They put the beat down on the Bears, kinda like the Cardinals were doing... only this time the horseshoe thingee didn't work out for the OVERRATED Bears! ALL I can say is it's a blessing in disguise.... maybe the Bears fans won't crash so hard now when they choke in January!! shocked.gif

Hey Buzzsaw nice effort by your Vikings squad! Three points against the 49ers, the Packers in your mirror are closer than they appear. blush.gif

I'll take my 7-1 and the opportunity to choke in the playoffs. wink.gif

You sound like my wife, everytime I give her constructive criticism... she changes the subject to something I could do better.... too funny! If you look, there are other posts bashing the Vikes and Williamson in particular. Lets try to stay focused on the Bears in this thread okay. Face it, they were exposed to a one win team today!!! OUCH!!

With 3 straight away games, and tough ones to boot, I think the Bears better stop believing the hype about themselves....but that ain'ta gonna happen, and they are just plain lucky to be in such a cruddy division. C'mon Vikes and Pack, push 'em alittle at least so the Bears can't coast/back-in to the title!

You are correct on all counts but c'mon. Your boys got done at home by Joey freaking Harrington. This is a quarterback that even the big dufus Tice never lost to. There is plenty of shame to go around this weekend. Feel free to join us in bashing both our teams.

After the next three weeks, although they will still probably lead the division, I predict either they'll be calling 'em teddy Bears or hibernating Bears.

Buzzsaw,

Not sure how well you know Joe (Ragnar), but he was the hall monitor at my high school back in the late 1980's. For as scary as he looks, he was actually a pretty nice/modest fella - pretty sure he doesn't eat Bears or Bears fans. Only gripe I have with him is that he turned me in for tobacco use (he saw me chewing cope off-campus) and I got suspended from baseball the week that we played Cretin DH (Weinke era)...I still haven't gotten over that.

Go Bears!

Pete

I know Joe really well as a matter of fact when he was your liason guy at Minneotonka H.S. he would show up at the Tonka hockey games and we'd chat weekly.... I was employed by the City of Mtka back in the day.... Joe is now a Liason to Hopkins H.S.

Pete, I gratuated Hopkins in '86 and know alot of Tonka boys... any chance you played hockey or knew any Hopkins people?

Most of the hockey players I knew were also baseball players - I didn't play hockey. I moved to MTKA in 9th grade, so I didn't grow-up with these guys and haven't maintained any meaningful friendships - though I still consider them 'high-school friends'. I played with Justin McHugh, Jeff Dahl, Tim Hanus and Dale 'Off-the-skate-and-in-the-goal' Roehl (sorry Dale). I hung-out a bit with Sean Goldsworthy...I knew a few others (Agar, Tavi, Bouchard, Larsen), but my memory has clouded a bit over the years.

I knew few Hopkins folks. Mark Gonsoir hung-out with my circle of friends - not sure if you know his tragic story, but god rest his soul - he was the good sh!t...

Joe and I developed an interesting 'school-friendship'...I think he was new to MTKA HS around the same time I moved here from Chi-town. As you probably know, adolesent Tonka brats are not always the most welcoming/accepting people. Joe, I think, was from out-state (maybe up-north?). I think his family had a knife/chainsaw sharpening business (?)- He once shaved his beard at a pep-rally with an axe that he had sharpened...he also 'took all-comers' at arm-wrestling...he shared a story of being beaten-up and left for dead (teeth and face bashed in) - said it changed his life and helped him re-dedicate himself to live a full-life. Seeing him on the field during Vikings games brings a smile to my face - kudos to him...still wish he wouldn't have ratted me out though smile.gif

Dale Roehl!! I can't remember if it was him or maybe his brother (Ross)that was our goalie in mens league at Tonka... he was alot of fun, he'd play better with beer in his system!! tongue.gif I just saw "Hondo" Tim Hanus at the Gophers Hockey game vs CC a few weeks ago (Friday night).

I talked to Joe again before the Vikes game, he is a good guy and would probably remember you if you saw him. Take it easy.

The Bears have shown the last 2 weeks(Giants, Jets) that they deserve being 9-1. They can't help it that their division has Detroit, terrible general manager and organization period, Green Bay, who now have the reputation of not paying their players well, except for an over the hill QB, and Safety, then there's the Vikes, enough said. Yea the Bears are in a terrible division, a terrible conference, but they win. Go Bears!

I'll cheer for a team in the division(except the Viqueens) and would love to see da Bears kick butt this year but I see them going down in the playoffs. The offense will fail them at crunch time.

Thanks PT

And Cooter you may be right but I'll take it when I can get it. You have to get to the dance to take the prom queen home. I don't really see any potholes getting to the big dance but there are a few "ugly girls" lurking behind the speaker stands in the gym just waiting to send my beloved home from the prom with Rosie and her 5 sisters.

I don't know if you watched the game Geno, but I hate to use this as an excuse but it was obvious that the Bears got "jobbed" on several key calls. One was at about the 10 yard line and one was in the endzone. If they had those points early, Rex would not have had to force the throws he did. Oh well, take it like a man and move on. 9-2 ain't bad.

Nope, couldn't see the game from the Roulette wheel.

Just heard from some other Bear fans how bad Rex looked and what terrible coaches plays were sent in and how receivers did not fight for the ball and........

Windy..I think there were some bad calls and non calls on both sides of the ball on Sunday.I didnt think Grossman did that bad,but he has some issues with pressure.I would like to see them roll Grossman out a little more and they need to use there tightend a little more also.Gman seems to always want to go for the big play instead of a sustained drive,but that may be the coaches calling that.Im looking forward to this weekend in hopes of a Bears victory over the Vikes............GO BEARS...........

      Anyone fishing this lake? How is the ice and bite?
    • freeman82
      has anyone been out to swan lake thinking of going this weekend. never been to this lake but have heard good things. 
    • oilandwater
      Only ice is in McQuade harbor and Knife River, and not much at that.  Cohos are biting really well on some days for guys fishing off the Two Harbors break wall. Pretty miserable conditions in which to fish, though....    South shore has good ice around Washburn, and a few cohos mixed in with good catches of Browns, spoke, and whitefish. Cohos on MN side have averaged 13-14" this winter.

      I have been using a Strikemaster Lithium Lazer 50v electric auger the last couple years. Very happy with it, but I'm limited to about 70-100 feet of ice drilled per charge, depending on temp/hardness of ice. That's more than enough for most bluegill trips, but it's lacking when the ice gets thick and I'm trying to find walleyes on big water during full-day trips. I find myself not drilling as many holes as I would like in an attempt to ration the charge. I just picked up an Eskimo P1 Rocket 8" propane auger. My buddy has the 10" and it's the best auger I've ever used. If anyone wants to really aerate a lake, the Rocket fits the bill. I'll use this along with the Strikemaster electric to meet all of my drilling needs. I haven't used the Rocket yet. It's in the mail. I'm excited at it's light weight in particular. 26 pounds.

      Next time you give it a try. Take a flash light and look up to make sure the throttle flapper is returning to the closed position when you let off the gas and it dies. I have had them stick open or half open then your more or less trying to restart it at half or full throttle which may just be flooding it out. It's either starving for gas or flooding.  Let us know if you solve it.  Good Luck.

      I never fished north of Wahpeton. When I fished down there I'd go south. There's normally some walleye biting early in the year south of the main road through town. I don't know how it would be this time of year. I always fished it first ice because that was usually fishable before most lakes. If you do go out I'd recommend bringing someone along and having a chisel along to check ice. That river ice can be very inconsistent.

      I ordered a rebuild kit from amazon for less than $5.00, so hopefully that will help.  YouTube has some videos on installing it.  It is an odd thing, if it sits for a while it will start and I can run it.  Once I take it off full throttle, it will die and I can't get it to restart.  Thanks for the posts so far, I appreciate it.

      Anyone ever fish this lake? Buddy of mine wants to try it?

      For cleaning carbs I use Gumout spray with the tube on it to shoot through all the passage ways. If I'm finding one not flowing well or clogged I like to use a gas welding tip cleaner. There are a lot of sizes and you don't have to jam something to big through it which could widen and ruin the flow. I got a nice pretty new little chain saw from a guy who just could not get it running for Free. Found that no spray would go through the main jet when I was cleaning the carb. Used the tip cleaner to knock out a piece of saw dust, and clear our Deer trails out really nice this year! Like Wanderer and Borch said, rebuild kits are cheap and a good thing to do if it's been gummed up.  p.s those little piss-ant needle flow valve springs are really fun to get back in place with fat fingers! They like to jump off the work bench and hide!!

      Sounds fun Jeff!, The way the ice has set up this year maybe it will happen after all. I would like to start getting a few prizes together for Biggest Cat, and also a kids division. Hopefully someone can bring a few good ones to the scales...
