Tigers got all that MOJO -- We're home free! (ya...right)

Big win last night. Believe the SOX are out of it. Two team race for the Division. Loser gets the Yankees.

Chicago with it's huge payroll will go down as a big disappointment in 2006 by not getting back to where all the so-called experts expected them to be... in the playoffs and World Series.... they could still turn it around, but time is running out on Windy's boys of summer.

Just proves that last year was a fluke. The sox always fade come august and sept...its just the make up of who they are. They almost blew it last year but played well enough (and other teams in div, poor enough) to make it into the playoffs on fumes. Their dreams usually come to a crashing end with a series in Minnesota too bad it doesnt look like those games will mean much for them at this point.

Hey Buzz, remember what you said yesterday? Well, the WSox got the 1 out of the way now but I don't think they're gonna get the 12.

Very nice story there Sled.

Mr. MOJO rising..........

Anyways, I'm watching the game last night and they show the pics of the 3-4-5 (Dye, Thome, Konerko) so I know nothings gonna go wrong that inning, then later I see that Podsednik is pinch-hitting and I'm like, who the he** is HE pinch-hitting for? I know I AIN'T IN THERE so that poor guy must be a real bum!

Windy, you shoveling any dirt yet?

Geez, wonder if we'll ever hear from Windy again...he's gotta hope the WSox win at least one of their last 12.......AFTER the WCard is clinched I hope of course.

I'm a thinkin' that the people of Chicago are going to hop on the Bears bandwagon and hope they can salvage the end of summer/fall season for them as their White Sox are faltering big time. I could be wrong, but I suspect you'll stop hearing White Sox banter and it will turn to Bears this and Bears that.... I've been wrong before, we'll seeeeeeeeeee. grin.gif

Buzz,

Like I have said before, "Any port in a storm"! I did my duty and paid my respects to my beloved at the funeral last night. I would bet my last dollar that you will not see Mr. Buehrle wearing the black and silver next year. I think he has already been fitted for two red birdies on the front of his jersey. But to put a positive "Windy" spin on the game, at least I saw the Sox pull off a triple play and Thome did get his 40th tater. So to validate what my running mate and "brother from another mother" said....BEAR DOWN CHICAGO BEARS! Windy

This really shouldn't come as a surprise to most WhiteSox fans that were actually following the team before they won their first WS in 80 years.

They have consistently collapsed towards the end of the season, with last year being an abberation.

The three straight div. titles that the Twins won were supposed to be won by the Sox. "ON PAPER", they were supposed to be better, but when you played the games, they weren't.

Hopefully the Tig's can falter enough for the Twins to win the div. and continue the dominance they have shown since the 2002 season, minus 2005 when the Sox fluked out and won it all.

PS - The Bears aren't that great either. grin.gif Although they are probably better than the Vikes.

Windy, you did your boys proud and stood in here tall one against all and held your own. Even your final thoughts show a true WSox love so I give you a big "Attaboy Windy" - spinning it like we know you can. Remember who their other TriplePlay this yr was against?

Listen, it's not so bad to be out of it. I still root for my Cubbies and they got 3 chances EVERY year to make the playoffs: slim, fat, and none!

Well guys....I leave it to group concsious (sp?):

Do I root FOR the WSox tonight?

      Now is the time to talk with kids about the dangers of ice. Ice thickness varies greatly on lakes, ponds and rivers throughout the state. Some water bodies have none, while others have several inches, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  “Ice, especially early ice with snow cover, is extremely deceptive because you can’t see dangerous cracks or the thickness of the ice under the snow,” said DNR Conservation Officer Adam Block. “Parents need to teach their kids that ice is never 100 percent safe. If your child is near the ice, you should be near your child.” With many children out of school for holiday breaks, they may look toward newly forming ice for entertainment. “In addition to checking conditions locally and being prepared with an ice safety kit, anyone recreating on ice should be wearing a life jacket or float coat,” said Lisa Dugan, DNR recreation safety outreach coordinator. “A life jacket is the one piece of equipment that increases your odds of not drowning from cold water shock, hypothermia or exhaustion should you fall through the ice.” Ice safety guidelines
      No ice can ever be considered “safe ice,” but following these guidelines can help minimize the risk: Always wear a life jacket on the ice (except when in a vehicle). Children should never be unsupervised around ice. Caution children to stay off ponds, streams, and other bodies of water. A thin coating of ice on a pond or lake does not mean it is safe. Check ice thickness at regular intervals – conditions can change quickly. Before heading out, inquire about conditions and known hazards with local experts. Avoid channels and rivers. The minimum ice thickness guidelines for new, clear ice are: 4 inches for ice fishing or other activities on foot. 5-7 inches for a snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle. 8-12 inches for a car or small pickup. 12-15 inches for a medium truck. Double these minimums for white or ice covered with heavy snow. For more information, visit mndnr.gov/icesafety and mndnr.gov/boatingsafety. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Prods, Thanks for becoming a recent member of this site.  I never give out that information online.  There are too many people who strictly fish a lake because someone said something on a facebook/online post and everyone hits the lake and destroys the lake.  I was fishing north of DL though on a very large lake that is relatively shallow.  Its a fun lake because not many people fish it but it has multiple public accesses on the lake.  Fishing has been relatively good on the lake and a buddy has been out there filming a few youtube videos also from there.  I plan on going out again on Friday earlier to see if they bite during the mid day.   I'll give you this information though its on a mid lake point fishing out from the weed line.  Its a muddy/silty bottom and the fish cruise the bottom and I'm assuming feeding on blood worms and that is why the soft plastic worked so well.  According to Navionic's there is a "hole" of 13-14 feet that isn't that big where our houses were set up.

      Didn't venture out myself, but saw 3-4 people ice fishing on Alimagnet Lake that borders Burnsville and Apple Valley on Sunday.  I thought they were nuts, but nobody was swimming.
    • iiccee63
      Will have another ice report on Linwood Wed. afternoon. walking out with my chisel to really check it out.
    • BobT
      Colleague tells me there's about 3" or so of ice. Check it regularly to be sure.
