It could happen... they should come out and throw throw throw like the patriots did! I mean they probably only need 10 points to beat us. frown.gif

Buzz,

Don't you and Andy/DTE need to make some avatar bet of some kind?

After falling to Buffalo late, and with the explosive off of the Vikes, maybe you guys can agree it could be a toss-up?

PS What was that post a little while back about the Pack taking 2nd Pl ahead of the Vikes? And we all laughed as if it wasn't even possible.....if only.......

We probably should, but that would guarantee a Vikings loss! So with that being said, I sure hope we win... a loss to the Pack would be horrible, although they are playing better and we are playing horrible on offense. Maybe Longwell can win it for us this time at the end of the game.

Longwell will have to win it for us, we cant score a td unless its our defense. Could make for a real ugly game.

I say Packers 24-21, Favre has 300yrds passing and 3td's

1int to Sharper, Rayner kicks a 40 yard FG as time expires. I will be at the game and be walking out of the dome one happy man.

Packers win 147-5

Favre rushes for 6 TD's w/198 yds. Throws 14 more for 582 yds. Then, because it will probably be his last game in the dome- he comes in at linebacker and sacks Brad for a safety. Oh, and he throws a pick to Sharper, tackles him causing a fumble, picks it up and runs it in for the final TD. And then....he comes in and blocks a Longwell FG attempt. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

That about 127 fantasy football points. If he's on your team, I'd definitly start Favre this week.

At least there's a chance we'll see someone score.

Oh Flat, that was great.

You just forgot to mention that he'll also cook dinner and do the dishes after the game.

Boy, after a game like that, Madden's lust is going to reach such a level that he might just keel over and croak. grin.gif

Man, I just haven't had much time to get on the site as I use to. Two kids now, wife training for marathon and I'm already training and looking ahead to Ironman Wisconsin next September.

But those of you will to take a 1 week avatar bet I'll take it. Odds makers have the Vikings at 5.5. I know that's a tough spread to swallow being a Vikings fan, but if your willing I'm game.

I have no idea how they came up with a 5.5 spread. I thought that was our scoring average.

That said, I will take your wager DTE. I don't feel good about this game the way we are playing but this may be the most significant prize either of our teams play for this year.

They must be taking Defensive TD's into consideration. laugh.gif

If it was possible, they both should lose on Sun grin.gif I'm a Packer fan but if I had to bet my life savings(debts) I'd vote the Vikes win.

Vikings will win...End of story! smirk.gif This week the Vikings offense will explode and Johnson will throw a couple TD passes and the vikings will rush for a couple more, plus the D will be very strong for the Vikes. I don't know what the final score will be, but I say they win by a pretty big margin and send the packers back to the land of cheese bruised and beat!!! shocked.gif Atleast I hope that's what happens? wink.gif

I think CatMan should pay up even though he never officially accepted....his post was awfully optimistic, and in the end, all wrong.

2nd place Packers sounds pretty good, considering.....

It's not so much about the game as what you do to get over it when you get home. wink.gif

    • Ya I think my dog would want to go after them he gets really excited around other dogs. That's why I will never hunt him without his e collar because I know I can stop him in his tracks with it. My dog likes to hunt close and I never let him push out way in front of me so at least I have eyes on him at all time and can give him the command to come to me if I see a wolf. I always keep a slip lead with me as well so I can put that on him and not have my hand tide up reaching down holding on his collar.

      I had a couple run in with wolves last year in the Longville/Remer area but that was just with me on foot with no dog.

      The one thing that gets me is "Only agents of the government are authorized to take wolves if pets or livestock are threatened, attacked or killed" 

      I don't think I could just stand there and watch my dog die.

      Anyway did you hunt a different area? Any birds I have only been out once in the mille lacs area and didn't see any. Going to Nemadji this weekend and should see some.

      Went up north of Tofte last weekend camping/looking for a few grouse and to see the fall colors. Was in the region of the grade and 600 road. Pulled off on a walk only trail to run my lab and see if I could kick a few. Anyhow, my lab sits and barks like hell with anticipation at me every time I'm getting the gun out and getting ready to hunt her. So for about 5 minutes she's harassing me loud barking with excitement. We start walking down the trail maybe 50 yards and I see all this brown commotion jumping around ahead of us about 75 yards. At first I think we startled some deer. Then one came out full on the trail and stood watching me/dog. They were timber wolves. That one slunk off in the woods and another came out and just sat there looking at us for about a minute or so. When I noticed they were wolves I grabbed the dog by the caller. They seemed interested in my dog. Her barking must have drew them in. They ran off after looking us over a bit. I turned around and left that spot to avoid any issues. I'm thinking that maybe some younger bird dogs would be enticed to chase after wolves that show this kind of interest in them. In my opinion that would be bad and a dog may not come back alive, given their boldness and interest in my dog. It was fun seeing them, but we didn't just walk up and surprise them, they were coming to see the barking dog. Just curious? Maybe. Looking for an easy meal, maybe. I'm just putting this out there to inform bird hunters up there what I saw, so they can be aware if they have dogs. And no they were not coyotes.

      Made it out yesterday evening, SAW 4 deer. The same small buck and 3 does.  They sure seemed skittish with the wind.

      For the fact I am getting very few daytime pics of any deer, I am at lest seeing a few every sit.

      The crescent and south switch meet all the criteria, except for boat access.   And they even usually have some sort of craft beer on tap, like surly furious etc. 

      The only place near the lake that has upscale food that I am aware of is the casino.    We try to get to the wilderness grill for lunch a time or two.   And daughter and husband will sometimes go there on date night while they are up, although the pull to the east is less now that the quilt shop in tower shut down. 

    • I am going up this weekend with a few buddies and the plan is to fish hard...will post back and let ya know if we find anything.

      Was up for the week of Sept 10-17th.  First day spent on East and West Fox lake and we did well on bass, crappie and northerns.  Second day was very slow fishing.  Spent one day on Kego and did well on bass and norhterns.  Hit Mitchel twice and did well on sunfish and bass.  A few nice crappies in the mix as well.  Went to Little Boy for a day of walleye fishing, and it was very slow.  1 walleye and 1 smallmouth bass.  Great week of fishing on a few new lakes.  A very nice area to explore.

      The trees are turning color fast now! Seems to gain color by the hour now!

      Cliff

    • Driving a scenic route through a state forest is a great way to view fall color, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  

      Finland State Forest

      Finland State Forest

      “Routes through hilly or rugged areas dominated by deciduous trees tend to have the best mix of color,” said Jennifer Teegarden, DNR forestry outreach specialist. “And the dark green needles of conifers accent the yellow, orange and red leaves of deciduous trees in mixed forest.”

      Here are a few state forests routes to consider:

      Late September

      • Finland State Forest heading northeast along County Road 7 from Finland.

      Early October

      • Bowstring and Blackduck state forests along state Highway 46 between Deer River and Northome.
      • Pillsbury State Forest along Beauty Lake Forest Road between County Road 77 and County Road 1.
      • St. Croix and Nemadji state forests loop. From Interstate 35, take exit #183 and head east on state Highway 48. Head north on County Road 24. Head east on County Road 24. At Markville, head north on County Road 31. Head west on Park Forest Road. At Kerrick, head south on state Highway 23 to Interstate 35 exit #195.

      Mid-October

      • Richard J. Dorer Memorial Hardwood State Forest has two good options. Along Zumbro Bottoms Road off of state Highway 60 southwest of Wabasha. Along state Highway 16 between Interstate 90 and state Highway 26.

      Visit www.mndnr.gov/stateforests for information about visiting a state forest and additional scenic routes. Entrance into a state forest is free. State forest campsites are available on a first-come, first-served basis for $14 a night.

      Visit the Minnesota state parks and trails Fall Color Finder at www.mndnr.gov/fall_colors to find areas in Minnesota with peak fall color. The Fall Color Finder is updated every Thursday through the end of October.
