Just a little sleepy this morning, I'm guessing Nathan is too!

Wow,

Talk about twin roller coaster rides. Sox down and down and down, wait, they are coming back coming back, TIED, now extra innings, DOWN AGAIN, wait THEY ARE UP FOR THE FINAL. Sox win in 14!!! Touch them all Steve Swisher.

Twinks are up, now they are down, wait, they are back up and then Nathan crashes the roller coaster. Could the Twinks get swept by the worst team in baseball??? Lots of road games for the Twinks in the next 30 games so there will be no "Baggie-dome" lovin'.

Sox back in 1st....Alone!

All I can say is sit back, relax and strap it down because this is going to be an exciting roller coaster ride for the next 2 months!

You are correct, next 2 months will be something else. How many times do you think both teams will bounce between 1st and 2nd place.

My guess is about 10. Though this rough away stretch for the Twinks could put them down by about 5 games as the Sox get healthy at home. My guess is it will tighten back up in September for the final run for the roses. I hope that both teams do well enough so that the wild card comes out of the Central. I hate the Red Sox, would love to see Tampa Bay be the only thing to come out of that division.

I don't care who comes outta where just so long as the Cubs can beat them for the WS. (Laughter, the best medicine!)

It is really tough this week, do I cheer for the Sox and hope the Kitties get buried never to be heard from for the rest of the season? Or do I cheer for the Kitties, and then they really wake up and sneak up on both teams????

As long as BOS and NYY keep losing I am happy. It would be great to see NYY out of post season.

Cubs - Twins WS???? What would the east coast people think of that? ESPN would still be saying how close BOS and New Yorks were to getting there...etc... and how did these 2 teams make it. Ah the dreams. blushgrin

Color my world !!!

Cubs vs Twinks

Wow, that would be the "pirahana's vs the Mighty Casey's. But remember what Mighty Casey did in his final at bat, Geno! LOL

You are a gambler Windy and know that yesterday's results have no bearing on today's.

Mighty Casey's huh? Nice compliment coming from a WSox fan.

Nice catch Mike,

I was just posting on another thread and started to type it and caught myself. It's he11 getting old! I was just coming in here to edit my thread but as long as you already caught it, I will leave it here for all the Twinkie fans to enjoy! Go ahead, make fun of the old guy! LOL I guess I could blame it on being a little sleepy after staying up so late to watch those exciting Sox and Twinks games!

Sled,

I eat the perch and walleye, I fry up the rock bass for my guests! LOL

And yes, you can count the tie as a lead change, as long as you count the Pale Hose victory later that night as another lead change! Roller coaster is getting pretty exciting.

If the Twins and Sox keep it up to the end, it will be a very interesting season ending series for these two teams!

Sorry second to the last series!

    • They can sure humble a person. 
    • Well I tagged out this morning.   I got out later as my daughter and her family were over so I headed out after breakfast.  I drove by the field to see if there were any there so I could plan a route to the blind.   There was a fl8cknof Jake's and a flock of longbeards.  I quickly snuck into my blind and stuck a funky chicken decoy out.  As I was stepping into the blind the Jake's start clearing the trees between the blind and them.  They worked around out front a ways.  Suddenly I see 2 toms fly into the field.  The jakes immediately charged the toms driving them out of the field.  After that the jakes saw the funky chicked and headed over to check it out.  With the toms gone and time dlipoung away I picked one out and shot him at 30 yards.  He'll taste good on rhe grill this summer.   Got in the blind at 10 am and was done by 10:15 am.  It's been a long season. 
    • Fun in the yak today in SE SD caught and released a bunch of these today:
    • How can a bird with brain the size of a pea out smart us!
    • The 2 lakes i bass fish have slowed way down the last week.   A swim-bait ripple shad was hot ticket for a while but that is just a pike attraction right now.  Been switching to a Senko and helped a little.   Pads are coming up fast now and we should see a spike up in activity soon.  Cannot wait to throw the frogs soon as that is the biggest rush watching those eruptions in the water!!   Thanks for posting as i found it to be quite slower than usual also.   Which means i need to find better ammo during those times.  
    • Tomorrow we will be back at it
    • I am giving it a last hurrah tomorrow. Sorry I haven't been able to check in here much. I have hardly been able to get out this year between work, a baby at home, and a recent trip out of the country for a relative's wedding.    Last time I was out I had a real nice Tom within 20 yards after a very long standoff. I think I screwed it up by rushing myself a bit. He stood around 50 yards out literally strutting back and forth like someone had drawn a line in the mud that he wouldnt cross. He must not have wanted to fight with the strutter decoy we had out. He did that for 45 minutes to an hour and finally came our way after a hen led him towards us.    They came past us but were outside the decoys and angling slightly away from us. Then the tom turned and started angling straight at the strutter decoy. That meant he was basically quartering to me and when he was 15-17 yards or so out I drew because in the back of my mind i was thinking if he kept moving that way and past the decoy he would quickly be in a spot I would have had no shot.   In hindsight I think he had realized (once he got close enough) that he would have been able to whoop up on the decoy and he was coming in to do just that. I probably should have waited to see, but I didn't and right as I hit the backwall of my draw his head popped up on alert and he turned around and walked straight away knowing something wasn't quite right. I could have easily shot at him at 20 yards but he was facing away and I just didn't feel comfortable. I am confident I would have hit my mark but I didn't like shooting at something walking straight away when I am not experienced with bow hunting turkeys.   I know some people will say that I should have shot, but I have been bow hunting for awhile and never wounded anything because of a poor shot or poor shot selection, so I didn't want that to be a first. Hopefully I get a shot at redemption tomorrow!
    • Way to go team!! I sure took the avg score down with my jake
    • nice story, fishing has a way of easing the pains we have. even when we hurt like crazy when done for the day we are looking forward to the next outing.
    • way to go, guys yep, the toms not about to give up even though its close to closing time have seen several strutters the past couple weeks and heard gobbles yesterday while fishing
