Second best day but that would only be topped by them moving out of town.

I am so glad that they finally let him go. The Mcfail era is gone now we can work on a new era!

I was elated to hear this on the news. whohoo!! Kahn did the right thing. Wonder if all ties are severed...meaning no McHale working with the big men. Bill Lambeer resigned from the wnba, do you thnk he might be interested or wants to be considered? I am sure Kahn has a short list of candidates now that the nba season is finally over.

Mac did a good job with the players last year, but he’s still dealing with chopped liver, and apparently some members of the media have short memories because he created that roster. 13 years in the organization and there were way more boneheaded moves than good moves. If you or I made this many mistakes at our job, we would have been let goa long time ago. It’s nice to have a coach that players like but if you aren’t winning, who cares? I know the players, especially Jefferson and Love will miss him, but that roster is still a couple major pieces away from even competing so why have McHale hanging around like a stale fart? I guess Kahn told the media they have 6 major events on the horizon before they will be a competitive team: 2009 draft, 2009 free agency, the 09-10 trade deadline, 2010 draft, 2010 free agency, and the 10-11 trade deadline. That’ll be a long two years and even Kahn admitted you need to get lucky.

Sounds like Terry Porter, Sam Mitchell, Mark Jackson, Bill Laimbeer, Mike Fratello, and a couple others are being considered for the job. I wouldn’t mind seeing Sam Mitchell, since at least he’s won a coach of the year. Fratello’s won a lot of games too. T.P. is pretty raw, and Mark Jackson hasn’t even coached yet. Bill Laimbeer would be a McHale retread.

The bottom line: The wolves should have made this move when they had KG and some momentum. But the low expectations of this organization prevented that.

I agree, one run to the western conference finals does not make up for all the bad moves and decisions he's made with this team. The Joe Smith thing alone was inexcusable.

I read something on ESPN.com yesterday that said there were rumors the Wolves were considering trading Love to Memphis for the #2 pick. Would they take Thabeet with that pick? Otherwise, they'd probably be drafting two guards with picks #2 and 6.

    • I would say your results speak for themselves, we often do things that don't make sense or trade short term gain for long term trouble. Nature does things for a reason that we often don't understand, why try to fix what isn't broken?
    • Two charter boats. (11 people) Fishing was very slow last Sunday afternoon (8), but we did really well on Monday morning (43). Due to bad luck drawing cards, neither Mrs Duff or I touched a rod on Sunday. She went 5 for 5 on Monday. That's fishing for ya though. And true fishermen understand that.   Some real nice fish this year, good luck to those that make it out there.      
    • And no, it does not have some sort of virus. They are calling it a phishing site and it is not. It competes with Google adsense so it make sense for Google to be sloppy in their algorithm.
    • Great storytelling with pictures on a portion of your life experiences in the  great outdoors.  Thanks for sharing Len.  
    • Len - This was a very nice article.  I enjoyed your writing style.  Take care.
    • I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
    • I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there. 
    • Thank You for the very interesting and enjoyable morning read
