Breaking News...Chicago Bears Fan comes to the aid of Queens!

Recommended Posts

Windy City Walleye Hunter

Well,

We just did it. I called a buddy of mine who is a huge Eagles fan (why I can not figure out since he lives here in the Windy) but he is and we just went on line and picked up two ticket on the friggin 20 yard line in the first 20 rows!!!

Now I have to go out and get some Eagles wear for the game.

Should you Queens fans get lucky enough to have Eagles fans and corporations from the area bail you out you will have me to thank as well as you are all watching the game from the comfort of your homes! I will be cheering for the Eagles but will have my Bears jersey on underneath it just for the end of the game. You can look for the one person in the stadium wearing a Bears jersey and you will know that is me! Game On!

Way to go Windy, a Bears fan saves the day. Now I can watch the game since my local channels are Mpls stations. 10.gif

Way to go Windy...its funny, the remarks from the other thread. Yeah, they are right, no tickets to see mcarthy shovel his drive, but then again, no chance at tickets to packer games unless I sign up now so my GRAND KIDS can get them. And people wonder why I think this so called "rivalry" between the Pack and Vikes is a sham. No way in gods green earth a playoff game at Soldier field OR Lambeau field doesn't sellout the day tickets go on sale.

Wear your Bears gear buddy! You payed for the ticket.

Sorry Queens fans...its lame. I'll root for them because its our division, but as soon as they loose, I'll be laughing till my ribs hurt.

REAL Packer fans are proud of 2-14 as long as the 2 wins are against Da Bears!

Windy, I highly doubt that out of the 3,000 tickets left today that you would get such a prime ticket. If you would have said row 50 of 50, upper deck with a support I beam in your field of view I would believe you.

Hate to back Windy Blagojevich up here but a lot of the unsold Tickets were season ticket holders who chose not to pony up. So there were a lot of good seats available.

Frankly I wish MOST of the Season ticket holders wouldn't purchase their Playoff tickets.

We need some fresh blood in the Dome and with some new excited fans at the game tomorrow it should be a good crowd!

there haven't been any upper deck seats available for a few days...all the seats left were good one on the lower level.

Yay, we are proud of the green bay packer fans for having a 60 year waiting list. I hate to break it to you but i am no less a fan for not buying season tickets for the vikings than the season ticket holder for the packers. I choose to take the $2,000-3,000 and put it toward fishing trips and such and leave those 8 sundays in the fall open to the possibility of prime fishing and hunting. I had no plans on attending the game tomorrow but a friend of mine called with an extra ticket so i'll be up there after all.

I'm telling you guys the truth. The tix are in section 107 and are in the first 20 rows. And they were only $160 each. Heck, I paid $500 a piece for Rod Stewart front row tix and $350 each for front row REO tix back in the day. My wife likes both of those groups so I treated her. I also took her to Vegas for her birthday to see Barry Manilow, those tix were under 2 bills a piece. I can not believe that these kind of tix were available for a playoff game 3 days after the tix went on sale. Keep your eyes peeled for a big burly man with a #72 jersey with the name Perry on the back. I will be next to a guy with glasses in an Eagles jersey, I don't know the number on his back but I would guess McNabb. Do you think I can get my whole section singing Bear Down Chicago Bears???? This is gonna be fun!

Great seats to be had for sure. But if I had the extra $320 for tickets, then parking and food and everything else you are at 4 bills. I'm a huge fan and really want to go but for that money I can find better things to do with it.

The NFL LOVES people with this attitude. Pro football is no longer an affordable event to take your family to. THAT is the real issue here, not fan loyalty.

Thank you Windy I wanted to get my tickets but it is my bowling night and I would rather give the money I will spend on food, drinks and bowling fees to the man who works his back side of to support his family and community. Have fun and thank you

i thought the tickets were cheap....you can get the bests seats in the house for only $160....if you just wanted to go there and get any old upper deck seat it was only $30 a seat.

i think the only problem was it came so shortly after the holiday seasons when most people were already spent....alot of families just got done traveling and spending what money they had on food and presents.

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

      Fishing with my father and my son on Father's Day hasn't happened in a long time...so this was fun.  Helped that the storms stayed south. 1/4-1/2 mile off the border straight out from the gap in 29-ish feet of water jigging worked for us.  Limits of 17+" walleyes by lunch both days, with a handful of slots for good measure.  Hardly any sauger, though.  Jig color rotated, so if something isn't working, change it up.  Black, gold, orange, pink, white, green, chartreuse all produced at one point or another.  Not everyone was catching, and moving 1/4 mile or even a couple hundred feet made a big difference at times. We didn't try it, but heard of spinners and crawlers working up shallow (6-10 feet) along Pine Island. Mayflies are starting to hatch.  Dad saw some floaters on the Rainy on Saturday, and I saw some in town at the gas station when I left Monday morning.

      Any current reports, crappies still biting? Going to give it a go Friday morning.

      Don’t forgot the requirement for non-resident anglers to wear blaze pink any time they’re on the water! 😆 My serious advice would be to visit the nearest bait shop. My experience is that they are always helpful in helping navigate the license requirements AND get you on some fish.

      Well the weather was a bit rough here until yesterday in Cass Lake.   Lots of storms and unsettled weather.   Still finding walleyes either in 8-12 fow or 17-21 fow during the day.  Leaches or shiners have been catching fish.  At night you'll find walleyes in 4-8 fow and willing to hit various crankbaits in various colors.  Lots of smaller eyes still being caught but nice ones too

      ya don't need a cajun, just the seasonings!!!!  and the rest of the fixins of course!!! but it would be fun with the real thing too!!

      We just got back from a week primarily fishing the east/south side.  I won't lie it was super tough, we didn't even mark fish for hours some days driving around the humps/shoreline breaks.  Usually its pretty good this time of year but this year it was brutal.  Few days we'd end up with 2 or 3 fish for half a day of fishing.  The tank at camp probably counted 35 walleyes cleaned for the week for 40 anglers.  Few slots but just not biting down that way.  Lots of pike came in and panfish.

      Tough bite for decent fish the past few days! Went out by myself this morning and switched tactics again. Trolled spinners/1/2 crawler and #4 gold Shad Raps on a 3-way rig in 24' to 30'. Had my limit of 4, 15" to 16" walleyes and a jumbo in the first hour! Released 5 other smaller walleyes also during the 2-1/2 hours that I was out. Cliff

      Went out yesterday for a little while, thought I’d just go close with the kayak given the time slot I had. Just planned on small gills and and bass, ( the normal catch in this place), but 2 18” walleyes supprised me.  A couple of loons were the only company I had while I was there. Lots of gills and bass as I expected just small in size.

      @Mike89 if I still had my traps I'd do a Crawfish Boil. Need some Cajuns to help me.
