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!

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.

      Yep I've been seeing it almost daily since Friday on the south end of the bay. Getting me excited! Time to winterize the lund. It was a good run again this year!

      Omg @Parmer I totally forgot about the Zoom, tells ya' how far my mind is from ice season yet. I do use it, but not whole lot, usally for perch fishing. Most of my Walleye are caught shallow.  
    • Parmer
      All I use is an fl8. I have had it like 16 years.  I guess I don't really believe in the zoom and all that stuff.  Think the fl8 reads fish pretty good.  And I hardly get any interference like my buddies, with there fancy Marcum's lol.

      First fish today was a big fat grey 30 incher, so as a guide the pressure was off right away. Steady action spot locked jigging in 30 feet of water with frozen shiners. By noon we needed 1 Sauger and one Walleye. At 3pm we got a nice Walleye so we quit at 3:30 one Sauger short. It was still pretty windy this morning but from the SW so fishing wasnt too tough. Had to toss the anchor at 2:30 the 3 batteries in the Terrova were spent, thats how windy it was this morning. Here are the pics

      NW is not good at Long Point(I dont know where it is good on this end of the lake.)  SW, WSW and S can blow pretty good without much damage.   Keep your fingers crossed and good luck
    • kemp13
      Hey thanks for the help anyfish2! Would you have a wild guess on how many acres the lake is?
    • ANYFISH2
      Not exact on the Max depth.  Can on occasions, winterkill, although not often.   I have fished it numerous times as I know a couple home owners there.   There are are crappie, bluegill, bass, pike, and the lake owners stock some walleyes as well(they have permits to do so).
    • henry6150
      Can someone please tell me of a good place to rent ice houses near Alexandrai, Mn???
    • kemp13
      Anyone know anything about lake Camile near cushing, mn? Looks like a real small private lake. I'm just looking to find out max depth and if it holds any fish. Any info is appreciated!

      Live to hunt another day by wearing a life jacket or float coat Hunters hitting the water this fall in pursuit of ducks, geese and other waterfowl are reminded to include life jackets on their hunting gear checklist.  “Hunters in Minnesota are trained from a young age to always put safety first,” said Lt. Adam Block, boating law administrator for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Enforcement Division. “For duck and goose hunters, that means always wearing a life jacket on the water – no exceptions.” More waterfowl hunters die every year from drowning than from other types of hunting incidents. Swamping, capsizing and falling overboard are all common factors leading to these deaths, but in nearly all cases the hunters would have survived had they been wearing a life jacket. “Before launching the duck boat, make sure everyone on board is wearing a life jacket or float coat,” Block said. “It’s the one item that greatly increases your odds of surviving a water emergency and living to hunt another day.” The wide variety of comfortable, camouflage life jackets designed specifically for waterfowl hunting includes inflatable vest and belt-pack styles, insulated flotation jackets, and foam-filled shooting vests with quilted shoulders and shell loops. “Typical foam-filled vests or float coats provide optimal insulation against cold air and the effects of hypothermia, but without question, the best life jacket for waterfowl hunting is the one you will actually wear,” said Lisa Dugan, DNR boating and water safety outreach coordinator. “Choosing a life jacket style that works for you, and wearing it every time you’re on the water, is not only a good choice – it’s the best choice you can make.” At the very least, all boats must carry one U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jacket for each passenger, and boats longer than 16 feet must also have a throwable flotation device immediately available. Children under 10 must wear a life jacket. Other water safety tips for duck hunters include: Don’t overload the boat; take two trips if necessary. If wearing hip boots or waders, learn how to float with them on. Stay near shore and avoid crossing large expanses of open water, especially in bad weather. Share trip plans with someone and advise them to call for help if you do not return on schedule. Use a headlamp, spotlight or navigation lights to alert other boaters to your presence in dark and/or foggy conditions. Carry a cell phone or personal locator beacon in case of emergency. Visit mndnr.gov/boatingsafety to download the DNR’s “Water Safety for Duck Hunters” brochure and learn more about water safety for hunters. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
