      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 .

Let the almost playoff begin

Recommended Posts

The stage is set perfectly for the Twins. If they can sweep the Sox and then take care of the Royals, they'll have momentum going into the playoffs.

..and there is a little handicap with it. it's like a seven game series and basically we are trailing two games to zero and also are about the equivalent of being behind in game three in about the 7th inning. It's go time.

Wife's going to the game tomorrow. She won't quit talking about it.

I would just like them to make the SOX sweat a little. I don't think they have enough gas left to get it done, but then again the SOX don't seem to want to win the division either. Hopefully it is a fun series.

What would happen if at the end of the regular season the Sox and Twins are tied in the division?? Do they have a 1 game playoff or do they go by division record?? I know the Sox do have a make-up game so I am sure that will come into play.

Right you are!

Worst case scenario for the Sox, barring not making the playoffs (lol) would be playing Detroit in Chicago the day after the season ends. Then, if tied with Twinks, a one game playoff for the division, winner take all, in Chicago because of the coin flip. We would probably limp into the playoffs not having the luxury of setting our pitching rotation and would most likely start the playoffs with our Number 3 pitcher. Let the games begin. This could come down to a battle of attrition, whoever is left standing after 15 rounds is the winner!

Regardless if the Twins, or the Sox win the Division, congrats to both teams, for being over achievers this year, and making the year fun and interesting to watch!

I am Thankfull we have a dome, or this series might have been delayed by a day, causing even more headaches. Yes it is supposed to rain tonight, as it is doing now. Going forward in the new park, get ready for a lot of double headers.

I can second that Wandering. Our two teams were left at the bottom of the scrap heap this year by all the so called experts. Some even thought the Twinks and Sox might get passed by the Royals, and everybody thought the Kitties and Tribe would be the 800 lb gorillas in the race, boy were they wrong. It does somehow always seem to boil down the Chicago and Minnesota!

And Gary, I can tell you to stock up on the Advil after our series was drown out with Detroit and we may now have to play a game after the season was supposed to be over. I hate the carpet but would love a roof over our heads.

Ya at least a retractable one for sure.

I agree both teams achieved more than were expected, and both have had issues down the stretch. Which ever team wins, hopefully they go deep into the playoffs and make it entertaining.

Windy I know, have the bottle right on the desk in front of me.

At home is the spirits of choice. Now the only thing left is hopefully no storms tonight or heavy rains as I have Direct TV and when there is storms around I lose signal. It happened early in the season as well as later in the summer, both during Twins games. I have a radio standing or sitting by.

Gotta have the game tonight. Need a bit of confidence with them trotting Blackburn out tomorrow. I don't have much faith in him. SWEEP would really put the heat on, but 2 out of 3 gives us a chance. I want the SOX to have to win vs. Cliff Lee on Sunday!! I seem to remember not many years back the Twins winning the Central on the last day of the Season vs. KC when Detroit collapsed!

    • Yup.....those are the ones I use also. Work  just fine. 1 con.....the rolls are 50 ft. long and don't fit into a machine with bag storage, so you have to cut them by hand. But the price is excellent.
    • Great Saturday to build some pork loin jerky. Got round 1 in the smoker round 2 still in the bucket. 
    • At the KMart at Nicollet and Lake in Minneapolis, there is a flock of pigeons that numbers several hundreds. Last Thursday going home from the Super Market I saw a large hawk make a strike at one, but missed.  This was a pretty dark bird overall and much bigger than a Coopers or a Sharpshin and heavy bodied not at all slender.  The attack was a straight line shot from a street light roost on a bird sitting on the shorter parking lot light post.  It seems to me that the attack was launched from a perch about a block away.  The target flew off and there was no chase, the attacker just returned to its previous roost.  I could not get over into the turn lane and go into the parking lot to get a closer look.  The main flock of pigeons didn't actually seem to notice, and there were even some stragglers. Is it possible that goshawks are starting to come into the city in the winter?  From a goshawk I would have expected a chase.  There are certainly plenty of pigeons, and the local falcons have gone south...  I know they are supposed to avoid human concentrations, but then so are loons and they are now common city residents and rest here when passing through in the spring.  We are getting all kinds of wild life in the Cities these days and not all of it goes around just on two legs.
    • I'm soon to be 40, still have never had a REAL super bowl party!   I will sit and hope.   Besides, at 7:11 last Sunday I pulled something in my neck/shoulder.  Might be a hole in my sister and brother in laws garage ceiling.
    • Lol. Dad and I were talking about this after the game last weekend after I had to tell him over and over that I have not been alive when the vikes have ever played a Super Bowl. You old timers can believe in what you want, but us Gen-X kids are saying SKOL!
    •   I'm sure if I had the time I could have spent 10 more minutes and made a nice one out of Oak or Cherry wood! Or found a blue Genz box on C/list and been done with it!
    •   You didn't try to call me, I would have given you some old oak boards I have laying around and let you use a few of my basic woodworking tools like a jig saw, an oscillating drum sander and a router with a round over bit.    I always tell my son, if something is worth doing, it's worth doing right.  
    • Ooof, that sucks.  Been there, done that.  Somebody’s still being affected by our day in the soup at temps like that.  Woulda given the world for a few studs in the snowmobile track!
