I am sad to report the passing of Aaron Buffington, who used to post on here often as So Haaad. He was a nice young man and loved the outdoors.

BUFFINGTON, AARON J.

Aaron James Buffington, son of Richard and Cheryl Buffington of Alexandria, MN, died peacefully at his home in Blaine, MN after a courageous battle with kidney cancer. Born on August 12, 1973 in Alexandria, MN, and growing up on Lake Darling, Aaron enjoyed fishing, swimming, and hanging out with his Tabberts gang of friends. After high school graduation, Aaron attended the University of Minnesota-Duluth and later received a Master’s Degree from St. Mary’s University of Minnesota. Aaron was employed as a City Planner for the City of Forest Lake. On April 3, 2008, Aaron married Stephanie Persons in a beach ceremony in Naples, Florida. Aaron and Stephanie made their home in Blaine, MN where they raised their 2-year-old son, Lucas. Aaron viewed his son as the “light of his life.” Family and friends were important to Aaron. Conversations and just relaxing at the lake with his mom were some of his favorite times. He enjoyed hunting and fly fishing with his dad and brother Jason. He shared the love of the outdoors and the mountains with his sister Michelle. His nieces and nephews held a special place in his heart. Aaron was involved in long distance running and was considered an inspiration to fellow runners. Aaron is survived by loving wife, Stephanie (Persons); son, Lucas; parents: Rich & Cheryl Buffington of Alexandria; brother, Jason (Liz) Buffington; sister, Michelle Wuollet (Tony); nephews: Patrick, Gordon, Garrett & Cooper; nieces: Kjirsten & Catherine, and many other relatives & friends. Our hearts are saddened with the passing of our dear Aaron. We will honor his life by continuing to live, laugh, and love as Aaron taught us to do so well. Visitation at KOZLAK-RADULOVICH BLAINE CHAPEL (107th Ave. NE & Hwy. 65) Sunday (TODAY) from 4-7 PM. Memorial service at OUR SAVIOR’S LUTHERAN CHURCH (9185 Lexington Ave. N., Circle Pines) Monday at 11 AM with visitation one hour prior. Memorials preferred.

Brought my little one cat fishing today in his honor.....thought that was better than running fifty miles wink Makes me sick to my stomach that they never had that opportunity. He truly was one of those guys that was simply a good guy. He will be missed my many. Cancer sucks!

      OUCH!!! 6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.   Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.   Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.     3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.   Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

      That's ok.  Was a good day on the water.  Took my wife out this afternoon and had a nice day fishing.

      Bass, especially Smallmouth Bass.   Why are they my favorite? A symptom of growing up along the Mississippi I would imagine.  The walk along the shores of The Miss. have given me pretty much every species that swims here.  Nothing get me more excited than the acrobatics or the will of a Smallmouth.   In open water I just seem more drawn to grab the bass bag and chase bass more than other species.  Come fall, it will be tunnel vision, bronzebacks.

      Bass.   It’s what I find myself fishing for the most. I can fish for em anywhere and there are SO many different ways to target them.  Anything from finessing to big, bold bites and big hooksets.  Even if you’re not catching much you can at least entertain yourself with precise casting practice for certain presentations.
