Should be some good games today, I'm definitely rooting for the Falcons and Steelers but I don't know man. The Pats just seem to play the best team ball in the League. Guys step up and perform at every different position.  The Packers are just scary in the post season, not so much the whole team but that dirty dog Aaron Rodgers. 

 

I hope they both turn out to be competitive and exciting.

The Pack played very Vikingesque in the first half, a bunch of woulda, coulda,  shoulda.

With an AP type of fumble going in.

 

Uran......

I came here to tell ya to shut it and not jinx things at half..........too late.

:)

I get loving YOUR team and all but I will never understand the average sports fans obsession with "despising" other teams.

What is there to despise?

Really what is there to despise?  Everything about your rival team is to be despised!!!  Cant stand their colors, mascot, city, fans...usually a lot of the despising comes from interacting with one of your rivals fans and being just annoyed with them and listening to them go on and on as to why their team is so great!!  Like listening to an Alabama fan tell us how great of a team they are and yada yada yada:grin:

That's also called jealousy.

Do you do this in your real life? Have you ever been in a bowling league or softball league? If so, did you despise the other teams in your league?

I'm going to be honest, there are only two teams in the league I despise. One is the Packers, the other is the Seahawks. The Packers, the reason is obvious, the Seahawks it is more or less Richard Sherman lol AND their sickening cocky attitude AND their hoards of bandwagon fans. 

 

I always root for the underdog in any game excluding the two above mentioned teams, and of course my Vikes.

Hey!   I've been a Seahawks fan since the beginning. We used to fly down from Alaska to SEA for the weekend:  the Washington Huskies on Sat. and the Seahawks on Sunday.  We ate cold oatmeal and hard bread for a lot of years before now. And I can remember in the old Kingdome when the floor would begin  to pulse and wiggle with fan cheering and raving!  It was scary sometimes.....I mean it....actually scary.

We ARE fans and sometimes we ARE cocky!

"Do you do this in your real life? Have you ever been in a bowling league or softball league? If so, did you despise the other teams in your league?"

 

I will say that when I play softball, just with my competitive nature or annoyance of certain teams, I do despise them to a point where when I play against them I take it a little more serious and want to win a little more as I hate losing to certain team more than others.  I usually don't have any relationships with players on those teams and there is usually a past experience to cause me to despise them.  But I don't take anything extra curricular serious enough to care past the game I am playing or watching...

I've also wondered why someone would obsess over which team another man may chose to support.  I've even known people to go as far as to start an entire thread about why people should ditch the Gophers.  its crazy, right?

LOL :)

 

I don't hate the Gophers, I even hope they turn it around sometime in my lifetime but I see no point in supporting a 50 year loser.

 

Plus Gopher fans are such a fun bunch to razz, they have such thin skin....;)

IMO I think it looks silly for Vikings fans to despise the Packers because whether it is or not, it always looks like jealousy.

You must be too young to remember back when they were never any good. It's all about perspective.

It's not jealousy, it's rivalry. Plain and simple. I hate those green and gold peckerheads. It's what makes the NFL so fun, not everyone pretends to be too good to hate their rivals.

Well if Tom Brady's balls are hard, the Falcons may have a chance! :P

Sure. IIRC once they changed out the balls they supposedly altered with ones at the supposed proper psi he threw for more yards and TD's than when the supposedly altered ones were in play.;)

    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
    • Nada for me today. Had some hens come in to give my decoy some company today, but no toms. Sorry I wasn't able to help out on the scoresheet this year. As always, learned some stuff that will make me better next year.
    • We caught plenty of bass this weekend.  However most were small 12-13".  Deep fish were less than eager to bite.  Still seen a couple guarding nests yet. Small plastics fished slowly was by far the best tactic. Only found a couple decent fish, biggest being 19.25".
    • We called at about 4 had them as close behind the blind but never came around for the nephew 
    • What great fun on a 4-weight fly rod!!  Those are dandy panfish.
