I made the mistake of watching the game in Hi-Def and listening to Joe Morgan. Was it just me and because the Twins lost that he just grates on how everything the Twins did was wrong? Two well place hits by Thomas did the Twins in today. Tip my hat to Thomas the man can swing a bat. But gee if you are going to bad mouth the Twins at least get the players names right (Jason)Will watch tomorrow but listen to the Twins radio announcers, Would rather listen to some home calling then a couple of announcers who seem that they are above calling an American league game. For awhile there I thought it was Windy doing the color!

I got sick of him by the third inning and muted the tv and listened to the Twins radio crew. In the third inning Morgan was still beating to death the first inning when Punto struck out on a high pitch and Castillo being thrown out trying to steal second. He said the Twins were done then and would never get to Zito. Worst part is, he was right.

I wonder what his thoughts were about stealing second in that situation? tongue.gif

Morgan is more knowledgeable than most announcers, and was a smart player. But oh man can he beat a point into the ground. Who wants to hear their team made a bad decision 37 times over?

He's a dink. I remember in 2002 when we played the A's and had that terrible first couple of innings, but still won.

He about had to swallow his tongue.

I'd much rather to listen to Joe Morgan than Tim McCarver and Joe Buck. Man, I still grind my teeth over some of the comments that McCarver made during the '87 series. Must have been hard for him to watch his Birds loose in 7.

He kind of reminds me of Joe Theisman. Was a good player but a total dork with the microphone.

I actually think Morgan/Miller are the best in the game.

      I'll give the noise supressor a try Bob.  Both units were purchased at the same time.    yoppdk- I checked my unit and I don't see any such setting on the 998.  There is a low battery alarm setting, but that is already turned to off.

      This terminal could have been comprised, cracked or corroded to cause this.

      Geese are beginning to flock as I seen a number flying over the past couple days.

      Our last trip last year required driving through a snow storm! But that time of year is special!

      Will fish around Paynesville, Cass Lake and maybe Osakis.  I generally fish right up to freeze up/firearms deer season in the boat.

      Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge

      I am spending Labor Day week on Kabetogama with my wife. Never been to Kab before so I am looking forward to hopefully figuring out a new lake with good multi-species potential. Any tips from anybody would be appreciated. After that it will be the anticipation of late October and Rainy River! That is probably my favorite trip of the year.

      A project to improve long-term water quality and wildlife habitat on Pelican Lake in Wright County may cause some short-term inconvenience for waterfowl hunters this fall, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  The public water access managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on the west side of Pelican Lake will not be usable for boats larger than a canoe or kayak, due to lower water levels created by a drawdown of the lake. While boats may be launched from the state-managed public water access on the southwest side of the lake, parking there is limited. Parking is not allowed within the immediate ramp area; it also is prohibited along the shoulders of 40th Street Northeast, the adjacent road. The DNR is in the process of designing and constructing a new public boat access on the northwest corner of Pelican Lake.  The project will be started in the fall, but likely will not be completed this year. Some private lake access may be available by arrangement with local landowners; contact DNR area wildlife manager Fred Bengtson for more information: 320-223-7840. Pelican Lake is in the middle of a multi-year drawdown aimed at improving water quality and creating better habitat for waterfowl and other wildlife. Once considered a waterfowl mecca, slowly rising water levels over some 30 years had killed much of the aquatic vegetation that stabilizes shoreline and provides needed food for migrating ducks. With help from Ducks Unlimited and constitutionally dedicated money from the Legacy Fund, an outlet was created for the lake in 2014 to lower water levels in several stages, with a pumping facility added in 2016. The drawdown will allow soils to consolidate and promote the growth of aquatic vegetation needed by ducks for food and habitat. In addition to providing critical waterfowl habitat, the project also will result in significantly cleaner water. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
