This could be a win/win, maybe Farve can take us deep into the playoffs or we implode and get a new coach. I say roll the dice.

It is tantalizing to think about spreading that offense with someone who could get the ball to Berrian, Harvin, and Rice. 3 wideouts with AP in the backfield, droool smile I don't see this happening with Tjack or Sage.

But I'm not real thrilled with marching down the field 50 yards and then forcing a throw into double coverage and cough up the ball. It's 100% evident he's an upgrade if he's healthy. If he doesn't get that arm fixed with surgery, it's not worth the hassle IMO.

On the Brett Favre torn bicep injury.

My Dad, rest his soul, tore his bicep in HALF on a motorcycle wreck when he was in college. He played catcher in college, had one HELL of an arm, even when he was in his 40's. It is not really an issue, you can believe me or not.

When he flexed his bicep it looked freaky, I wish I would have taken a picture of it! Looked like popeye!

I should add that he did have to take time off for it to heal...

If he comes, I would do anything to watch the Vikes. Im a true fan, but this would show the fans that their doing everything they can to make a true run. Without Favre its still a up in the air season. Go Viks, go Farve!

Norm25,

Being that the Packers are the only professional team located in Green Bay and the only winning professional sport in the state of Wisconsin, I certainly hope you could sell out every game. If a fan wants to attend a professional game, it's not like you've had very many choices over the past 10 or 20 years. cool

Da Chise...that's not the style they've built around---that's the end result when you have no other options.

I hope that last post was a joke Zamboni...or do you really believe that a 39 year old future HOF'er is going to come in and have a three way competion for the starting job...?????? C'mon.

Would it hurt? Like my post said, make him earn it- if he sucks in a tryout- tell him no thanks.

Good post!!!

Economy doesnt have anything to do with the blackouts either!! If you a true fan you will do anything to see your team!

True to some degree but some things do come before football if you have perspective in life. That said, I have not missed a game in in about 10 years. I have even traveled to 7 or 8 away games. I would consider myself a true fan but I rarely buy tickets. I have a 52" HD TV, surround sound, bar, bathroom, refrigerator, and a remote control with DVR to replay whenever the refs are screwing the Vikes again. laugh I would rather stay home but I don't see that making me less of a fan.

Well, I wasn't going to point out what is so obvious to everyone. gringringrin

Honestly, when you are evaluating who has the better franchise over the years, Super Bowls matter. Now, as a fan, I'm a Packer fan even if they haven't won any Super Bowls. If the situation were reversed, I expect most of the Vikes fans on this board would waste no time pointing out who has won a Super Bowl and who has not, and I expect the Pack fans would be sick of hearing it. Pointing out who has and has not won a Super Bowl is only "lame" if you're a fan of the has nots. gringrin

I totally agree on the baseball/basketball deal. Strangely enough, I've been a Twins fan from the outset even though I'm a Cheesehead. Probably one of those American League/National League things. smilesmile

Can't we just let the Cheese have this one little thing?... yes they are better Football fans than we are.... that wasn't so tough was it?

Now about that darn torn bicep. Talk about frustrating to think we're a torn bicep away from having a decent chance this year is a real bummer to say the least.

Go vikes/Favre!

Dude! My post didn't say anything about it being OK to complain about your team. Well, I DO think it's just fine to whine but didn't really cover that topic in the post. Methinks you were seeing what you wanted to see. smilesmile

It may be a fine point, but Favre tore his bicep tendon, not his bicep muscle. They heal differently. Muscle tissue heals on its own much better than a tendon will, I'm told. I know Favre hates being under the knife, but arthroscopic is barely surgery at all. I've gotta think if he REALLY wants to play and signing with the Vikes becomes dependent upon repairing the tendon, he'll get it done, especially if he can be ready by training camp.

Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty supports the Vikings' pursuit of free agent Brett Favre.

Pawlenty called the potential signing "a wonderful little salt to rub in the eyes of some of our Green Bay Packer friends." "Can you imagine Brett Favre going into Lambeau Field in Viking purple and maybe even wearing No. 4?" he added. "There would be audible gasps." And the rivalry intensifies.

The player rep for free agent Brett Favre, Bus Cook, claims that his client is still retired.

"As far as I know, he is retired," Cook said. "To my knowledge, that is not true," he said when asked about reports that his client will meet Vikings coach Brad Childress on Wednesday night. Clearly, Cook is not to be trusted.

#4 could throw better left handed then any of the QBs that MN has now!!

If he has to have surgery it would take 4-6 weeks for him to start throwing again and another couple weeks after that to become the gunslinger of the past again!!

Free agent Brett Favre refused to confirm or deny talks with the Vikings on Wednesday.

He may as well have confirmed. NFL Network's Scott Hanson interviewed Favre's agent, Bus Cook, on Wednesday as Cook and Favre texted back and forth. It appears Favre didn't consult his agent before following through with the visit. That'd be the only logical explanation for Cook being in the dark.

      I posted some information on a May 5 on Rainy lake 2020 fishing .... basically no crossing the border.   Muskies HSOShow.com Family 'we have more fun' I Share On FishingMN  132 199 posts Location: Reef Point, Rainy Lake Author Posted May 5 Found this information and thought it would be good to share:   This from the CDN gov’t.  COVID-19 Notice: February 3, 2021 During the COVID-19 pandemic, unless exempted, foreign national boaters are not permitted to enter Canadian waters. Failure to comply with the current prohibition of entry for discretionary or optional reasons (leisure, pleasure fishing, sightseeing, etc.) may result in severe monetary penalties or criminal conviction and/or imprisonment. Visit Transit through Canadian waters for more information.   Opener on the Ontario side of rainy lake is May 15. Good fishing to everyone!

      That's a good thought. I'll call but they went "online" only last year so he no longer has a shop. He talked with me about how he needed to cut his fixed costs in order to compete with all of the online parts suppliers selling out of their garages.   It's a shame though. That place was amazing. Lots of great, old motors on the walls. When I went there needing a new lower unit for my 1957 motor, he pulled out a box and said "which color?" The place was a timewarp of boat motors.

      I'll be up there with a couple friends on the chain. Never have any confidence for walleyes on opener, so we'll go after whatever bites (with an emphasis on eyes). 😀

      On the south end...  On the lake, the focus is on the May 15, 2021 Fishing Opener for walleyes.  There is much optimism as fishing in the Rainy River this spring was excellent and reports of good fishing from the spring season on the lake was also good. The limit for walleyes and saugers during the open season is a combined limit of six fish, up to four of the six can be walleyes.  There is a slot limit in which all walleyes 19.5 - 28.0 inches must be released.  One can be kept over 28 inches.   Pike anglers are still catching fish in back bays. The pike season is open year-round on LOW and the Rainy River.     On the Rainy River...   Sturgeon anglers are enjoying catch and release through 5/15/21.  Closed 5/16/21 - 6/30/21.  Harvest season opens up again on 7/1/21 - 9/30/21. Good numbers of sturgeon have been running in the Rapid River near Clementson just east of Baudette this past week.  These fish are incredible to see up close, but are also very much protected and respected. Anglers looking to this weekend and the opener.  Typically, there is some good walleye fishing in the river early in the season, such as this weekend. Up at the NW Angle...  A few anglers fishing pike in back bays but most looking forward to the May 15th fishing opener.  The go to walleye spots come the opener will be shoreline and island structure and underwater points.  The technique, a jig and a minnow! With the Canada border still closed, there are many ways to get up to the Angle.  The LOW Passenger Service, charter boat shuttle service from the south end, is open and running.  If you have the right boat and expertise, boating across is an option.  And finally, Lake Country Air flying service, a float plane service out of Baudette and other locations.

      i will be up in the area but not sure i will hit the chain.  the history with me and opener on the chain has not been productive so this year I am finding a smaller shallow lake in the area and going to hit it for walleyes.  I have not asked my father in law what the temps were but he has hit south cross and clamshell a few times and when fish are caught they have been on the smaller side.  Good Luck to you!
    • ozzie
      If I snagged an anchor line I am pretty sure i would not ask the anchored angler to lift so I can get my jig back, but I am sure I would warn them that there is a hook now in there anchor line!  I am that way fishing around docks...if I get caught on a dock I will always butt up to it and carefully remove my hook so they do not stick themselves or have a little kid get stuck from it.  Amazingly I have had confrontations with people in this regard!  And it is not like i am pitching bass jigs as I am usually crappie fishing around docks so i am using light line, small hook and cork bobber so I am not hurting a dock if i accidentally cast into it.  Oh well...Good luck to all you Vermillion fisherman on opener and in the rest of the season!

      Twin City Outboard in Shakopee only works on old motors.  They do great work and the pricing is reasonable.

      My 1960 Johnson Seahorse is on the fritz. I did an overhaul the over the winter rebuilding the carb, replacing dry fuel hoses, fixing two stripped bolts (helicoils) on the powerhead, etc... This spring she only wants to run on one cylinder. I am assuming that it's the coil or something similar but suck at the electrical side.    Great American Marine in Bloomington won't touch old motors anymore. Neither will Boat Motor Recyclers in Burnsville (1990 and up!).    Does anyone up near Vermilion still work on older motors? I'll take a recommendation for somewhere near the lake or in the Twin Cities. Any input is appreciated.
