Congratulations!!!!!!!! The Cards definitely deserved to win it, they played better. However...... don't forget to send a THANK-YOU CARD to detroit. I've never seen a team play so bad and out of character..... since the Twins against Oakland..... confused.gifwink.gif Other guys have said it before... you never know in baseball! so true! Enjoy your year!!!

Greatest line I ever heard spoken about sports came from an old Hockey cosch down a road a bit from me, here in Lansing, MI. Talking about Ron Mason, from MSU. He always said, when you get in the playoffs, "it's not how good you are -- it's how good you play."

Great day to be a Cardinal fan!!! I've been waiting for this for a long time. The last time the Cards won the World Series, I was 11 years old. Now they win again when my daughter is 11. I remember game 7 of the 1982 Series well. It was a school night and the folks wouldn't let me stay up to watch the end of the game. I snuck out of bed and found the transistor radio and listened to it quietly under the sheets. It was hard not to yell and scream. So last night, the kids got to stay up late and watch 'em finish it and there was plenty of yelling and screaming going on.

I really didn't care who won. I just wanted to see a good series. I thought it was boring and painful to watch to be honest. I think that was the cards 10th title or something. Kinda like the yankees winnning it. I don't like cards dirty manger, overrated Rolen and was kinda hoping ALbert would be like Bonds and never get a ring. Dang maybe i was rooting for the tigers shocked.gif

But they are the champs and they earned it. Congrads cards fans!

Gonna have to return that backhand from Outdoor with this forehand:

I did not think it was a boring series at all.

I had picked the Tigers based on their rest, age, season record, pitching, and homefield. But I was always afraid of the Card lineup. I knew those guys were good, and they proved it.

Congrats to the Cards and their fans.

Thanks guys like I always said your a classy bunch. Watched the game again and ordered my world series wardrobe this morning, man is that stuff expensive, but hey it's been 24 years what the hey... I remember in 1982 when I graduated High School and went down to the local Pipe & Tobacco in Pittsfield, MA where I was born and raised and had a custom tee-shirt made on a red shirt with white lettering on the front and that gaudy block lettering was ST. LOUIS CARDINALS and on the back it said WORLD SERIES CHAMPS 1982. That shirt I had for about 15 years until it just went through the wash one to many times and was shredded. I always wondered if I would ever get another... Thanks to a Cardinal team that was fundementally sound except for Dunc who get's a pass because it's his first year in the outfield. They were lucky enough to do all the little things well and come together at the right time and I am proud of em.

outdoor ran - Relax buddy your Brewers will be back.. laugh.gif The series MVP David Eckstein didn't exactly make a boat load of cash in his last contract and even though Albert did, he's deserved every penny for carrying the team on his back for 90% of the regular season.

Detroit has nothing to be ashamed of they just weren't ready and neither were we in 2004. They will be hungry next season and will be determined and I think the rest of the central better watch out. Class Manager and a great organization, itwas a pleasure to play the AL Champs and I have nothing but respect and believe me I am humbled by all of this...

      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      Nice Crappie!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..
