Perkins (restaurant, not pitcher) Kids starting lineup


Recommended Posts

Sunday, Aug 7, against the White Sox, my 9 year old gets to be one of the kids that stands on the field with one of the players while the National Anthem is being sung.

Just trying to find someone that's been through this before for some pointers or thoughts on it.

We're hoping that Nishi is either out of the lineup, or out of the game for that day, so my kid at least has someone that he can say hi to while standing on the field.

My 9 year old is so fired up he's been calling all of his friends and relatives.

This is the week before we were going to stop in Cleveland and catch the Twins game at Progressive on our way to Philadelphia / New York / DC.

That's going to be a day he never forgets. Pretty exciting.

Progressive field is one of our favorite ballparks, hope you enjoy it. If you can, try to save some time to see the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame right down the street. It's worth the effort.

What an opportunity for a young lad.

I'm sure it will be a day to remember for him and your family.

Today is the big day!!

We are trying to keep him grounded this morning, but it's hard.

Should be nice weather (albeit cloudy) and we're setting him up with a Sharpie and a camera so he can take pictures from the field.

Supposedly there's no time for autographs, but just in case the player says anything, you've got to have the kid prepared, right?

My oldest standing at home plate with the ump and Joe Mauer during the National Anthem. I was busy videoing, the wife snapped this pic of the video screen with the cell phone.

One of the kids didn't show, so the Twins' rep chose my 6 year old to take the place of the kid that didn't show. Caleb ended up in left field with Ben Revere.

They are both still so excited they won't go to sleep!!

      Wow, interesting

      Back when the DNR was seining our beach in July I asked, and apparently they were through oak narrows.   But long way to go to get to us.   I'll keep my eyes open and my mask and snorkel on.  Didn't see any sign off them this summer.

      Nice job Troy.   We are happy with our opening day for ducks.  2 man limit of mixed species by 10am.  LOTS of people where we were today but that was expected.  Other than getting beat to our spot, no issues that would keep up away.  Not even the rain.

      Thanks, I'm riding this now TW200 so not sure I can get on any of the ATV trails. Might have to sled by in the winter! 👍

      There are actually 3 tree carvings on the trail from Soudan to Ely.  I saw 2 of them but missed the 3rd.  I believe that trail is the Prospector Trail #4 or #6.  You have to start from the parking lot on the Murray Road 2 miles past Soudan since several property owners on the old railroad bed didn't allow off-road vehicles on their properties.  Another option is to travel from Tower to Embarrass then on to Ely, but that adds a couple hours to the trip.

      I've seen that caving on a few web pages. What trail is that on?  It would be cool to ride by. 👍

      The colors are getting good. Beautiful time of year. Maples are full red and birch and aspen are going too.  I’m not finding a formula for walleyes. Best luck when fishing saddles and shoreline drop offs 10’ down to 20’. I’m using old crawlers, too, because a) it’s hard to find minnows although Northwoods in Cook has them and b) it’s been too warm to keep them alive.  We do have a change in weather happening right now. Wind is coming up and the temperature is dropping. It’s going to be hard to fish Saturday through Monday but the change could be good after that.  Good luck, you’ll need some. They are out there and you’ll get dinner but you’ll have to work for them. RLG

      A few pics of our ride.

      Thank you. Yes, weather does look sketchy but we'll make the best of it. Looking forward to the colors and just getting away.

      Some more heavily fished lakes are tough ALL season.  Lake Minnetonka and Mille Lacs come to mind.  The water is clear, there are tournaments all the time, and the fish are not easy to catch.   That is why I focus my efforts on lakes with less pressure.
