Joe Morgan

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.

      Nice work Borch! Or maybe I should say Mrs. Borch?   Looks like I missed out.

      Keys to make the blade work well. *Sharp! *Cutting edge needs to line up to the Gullet of the opposite blade! *Add a .020 shim 1/8" wide between blade screw and cutting edge. Increases cut angle to same as K-Drill! I'm working on another set welding  1/4" piece of blade to the outside blade edge extending the blade 1/2" past auger flight making it a full 8" hole. Note how the K-drill blade extends 1/2" past the auger flights.

      I like your blade work as well. Two summers ago when I sold my hand auger at my garage I think I throw out about 4 sets of those old blades as well!  😣

      Made the drill point out of a spade drill bit welded to a 3/8” 16 bolt/screw than cut & ground to shape the point. Drilled & tapped center of blade bracket. Tap slowly as that steel seem a grade or two above basic mild steel.

      Thank you

      That is some sweet work right there. I see these at garage sales all summer, may be I should start picking them up?  Looks like you added a drill point on the end of them as well. The adapters and the end point are key items on making these right.

      I went a different route, got several vintage Mora 7 1/2" hand augers $10 to $15 each with the old hardened sweedish steel blades modified to replicate K-drill style blades #5. Went with clam plate 3/4" drive bit & M18 Fuel Mud Mixer worked ok on early ice #1. Wanted to try my DeWalt/Jiffy so converted to the 7/8" drive bit, didn't have the power to cut the agressive blade #2. Later ice in Wheelhouse, went with my Eskimo 43cc with a Walker 25' flex exhaust out the door, cut 32" ice in 27 seconds #3. Ran 4 1/2 holes to 1 of my buddies new green ION 8in. Made some adapters to put the 7/8" auger bits on my Clam Plate and Mud Mixer#4 for early ice this comming season.

      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.
