      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

WHAT's IT SPELL???

SWEEP

Hey Buzz, get out the O'Cedar my man. OK, so it is only a whisk broom (2 game series) but a sweep is a sweep.

Got to love my Pale Hose, just keep SPANKIN' THAT TWINKIE ARSE!

Who's your daddy? EL DUQUE !

In all seriousness buzz, I hope that Brad Radke's neck is ok after the way it spun around 180 degrees to watch Konerko's homer land 410 feet into center field. He's tough, a little Ben-Gay should work wonders.

HEY BACKHERUP....GOT YOUR EARS ON GOOD BUDDY? Hate to say I told you so with Maggs but looks like we made the right decision for now. Hope you turn it around, you owe those Twinkies a little retribution. Later boys, and as usual...

YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD.....YES!

A sweep is a sweep! Congrats to the southside brats! It was sooo frustrating outhitting you guys only to leave so many darn runners on base.

I'm not worried, all we needed was one or two clutch hits either night and it would have been sweep the other way around.... if you would have spanked us like 8-1 both nights I would have felt like the Twins are actually going to have competition in the Central division. Besides now we get Morneau and Silva back and that should make a difference.

P.S. Cuddyer and Punto left 489 guys on base last night! wink.gif

Windy,

What were the Twinks down at the break last year?

How far did the Sox get ahead of them early last year?

That said, if Guillen has really instilled a new attitude there, I believe we are in for a heck of a race. Here is to hoping that when the Big Hurt comes back he comes back with the same old clubhouse poison he and your Sox are known for and they fall apart....again.

Somehow I feel like the Twins outplayed the Sox and still got swept. Nonetheless, Windy, congrats, and enjoy your moment. Letting the Pale Hose have their early season hopes is a rite of spring in Minnesota. As Jacque Jones said after last night's game: "Look around here. Do we look worried?"

I'll have to say congrats too, although I think like Buzz said, a few clutch hits and we would have swept you. Chicago does look like a different team this year and hopefully they can at least make it interesting this year. Unlike past years where it's over about a month before the season ends. tongue.gif

I'm with the last three guys on pretty much all comments. Kudos to the Sox on the sweep. I like the way Guillen approaches things, but I wouldn't make too much of it & am not worried either. We just didn't hit in the clutch the last couple of games, the pitching was good enough to win, the hitting wasn't. We're not a great hitting team & we're primarily a singles hitting team, so we will have games where we don't string enough together to score much, but we'll still win a pile of games with our pitching & defense.

hows that saying go again...dont count your chickens before they hatch...

I not sure I would be TOO confident this EARLY in the season(14 games). Last I looked a season is a 162 games.

But then again it was a sweep at home(2 games!), and you didnt face the best pitcher in the league. I would be more concerned about your closing pitchers, they looked a little shaky in the 9th.

Until then, I will sit back and watch all of the Tori Hunter and Jacque Jones highlights over and over again from last night.

"Hope we can turn it around"??? ahahahahah, I love it...

I think its safe to say that we can put your broom away. The sox did well but not good enough to win those games in my eyes and looks like a few others. Cant wait til we play them later this season.

Hey Guys,

With the exception of Kowalleyski, I got to give you props and say, "Way to Cowboy Up" and take your lumps. True, a two game sweep is less satisfying than a 3 or 4 but you take what you can get. It seemed like last year the Sox would outhit the Twinkies but fall short on the scoring end. It seems like the teams have switched so far this year and our pitching is really good, so far. So I will take the congrats and keep my fingers crossed with each game. We did feast on the kittys tonight. If Backherup is out there, let me say, like Michael said to Sonny, "It's not personal Sonny, it's just business". Nighty nite, fellas. Windy

ESPN has their first power rankings out since the season began. White Sox are at #2 on the list, with the Twins at #5. Detroilet is at #19. Cleveland is sitting at #21 and KC rounds out the AL Central at #27. Dmitri Young sure was right about Cleveland being the Tigers only competition this year!! Too bad the competition in question is for finishing 4th in the AL Central!!

Windy, we're two weeks into the season. I wouldn't brag too much yet. How about we revisit the power rankings at the END of the season, when it really counts. grin.gif

    • There is no reason to get on the roof! For the ice and snow get a roof rake, keep problem areas free of both. For leaves and pine needles get gutter helmet. But stay off roof! One fall could change more then a stinky house.
    • I would be perfectly fine with that. Heck, it's no different from not even winning your conference and getting in the final 4 only to have the refs miss obvious holding penalties so you can have a winning TD pass. I'll take that any day
    • Only missing the toast, hot sauce and ketchup! Good stuff Manerd!
    • If you eat fried spam on wonder bread with velveeta cheese........ You might be a redneck.   
    • I was just looking at the chamber type vacuum baggers, and in the comments it was pointed out that the bags for the more expensive chamber sealers are much cheaper than for the "foodsaver" type sealers.   So if you do a lot of vacuum bagging, the chamber type might be worth considering. 
    •   OR, maybe it was a conspiracy........   http://6abc.com/sports/nfl-prematurely-promotes-vikings-patriots-super-bowl/2968550/
    • Yes, the vent is to let air in the system as it drains. If the vent is plugged, it is possible that the vacuum created by draining water could suck the water out of a trap, which would let sewer gas into the house. 
    • No worries, the NFL says it's time for the Vikings to at least go to the Superbowl......   http://6abc.com/sports/nfl-prematurely-promotes-vikings-patriots-super-bowl/2968550/    
    • If you weren't going nuts in your man cave or where ever, like all those folks on YouTube, are you really a fan?   My hound was barking like a mad dog to get back in the house because the Mrs and I were screaming bloody murder.   Is this the year? I sure hope so for my 85 year old Dad, who brought me to my first ever NFL game.........the Ahmad Rashad hail Mary catch against the Browns. Which taught me it's never over till it's over.        
    • Looking good PF!!  My daughter came home with a trouble maker last weekend,  cute little poop ( golden retriever) but a handful,  ya that rug doesn't belong there..
