      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 .

I pesonally don't think Gardy was serious about this game. Putting Cuddyer instead of Kubel? Cuddyer missed too much time IMO to be effective.

Disappointed with M&M also.

Cuddyer had 50% of the hits. The age of this team hurt us in this high pressure game, look at I believe was the 7th inning, Danks pitch count is climbing and all three batters go up flailing away at every pitch, 6 pitch inning, you already know that you aren't having success against him! Take some pitches and get him out of there??? Way too tight tonight.

Yeah! Gardy wasn't real serious about the game he should have started Kubel a LEFT handed batter with a career average of .071 against a LEFT handed pitching Danks!

I give up...... grin

you have to go with what got you there people. That is what baseball is all about.

They didnt hit, so they lost. You have to play the people that got you to that point.

oh and if morneau gets the mvp i will be very disgusted, 3 for 30 to finish the season is not mvp material.

No but some of you think you know more about baseball then one of the best Managers in the game and I disagree with that and have no problem with Gardy using Cuddy over Kubel tonight. Basic math and percentages is all it is and it worked with Cuddy getting one of 2 hits and almost scoring the go ahead run.

Not saying playing cuddy was wrong, but how can you say it worked? We didn't score and our season is done. Again, who knows if playing kubel would have worked or not but don't go saying yesterday's lineup worked.

Playing Cuddy over Kubel was the right thing to do any manager in the majors would of done that. One thing I questioned last night was why did Gardy have Mauer bunt??? Common pull your head out of your you know what he's the batting champ and you have him bunt, very nice move. Plus it doesn't help when Morneau has been the biggest bum on this team since the Tampa Bay series. And someone said it in a post he does not deserve the MVP playing like that, I say give it to Pedroia.

Congrats to the Sox, really cool that both Chicago teams are in the post season together for the 1st time in 102 years.

Do I think they will make it far I doubt it. Go CUBS!!!!!

Well Kebel did get a chance and struck out...Mauer always has the green light to bunt, the call didn't come from Gardy, he has done that on occasion all season, if he doesn't feel comfortable up there that is a good way to try to get on...thats Twins ball, the style that got them there. And Mornuea, holy cow was he awful the last week or so, he will not win the MVP because of this and the fact we were eliminated.

I don't think anyone should discount JM's MVP chances on 30 at bats---it maybe that it was his last 30 at bats that blew but look at the whole season. He was a HUGE part of the reason the twins were in a position to even make the playoffs. The reason the twins didn't make the playoffs is because of their horseshart bullpen work over the last month and a half--end of story.

They had a great season that fell short by 1 run! Lets give them some credit! Some of you already want to trade half the team and kick the [PoorWordUsage] out the other half.

Congrats Twins on the season.

Let me ask you this, why would you put someone in the starting line up on the last game of the year when he has not played for months, when you have a guy that has been taring the cover off the ball and sit him on the bench.

That makes no since. Your only putting down the guy that has been hitting home runs for you for the last 2 months.

PB...some will always complain. One hanging dinger to a veteran hitter is what meant the game. Good season and hopefully the young guys learned something.

What most don't know is Morneaus legs where hurting the last couple of weeks and should have had some time off, but we don't have a back up 1st baseman.

Let me ask you this why do you continue to cut Gardy's call on who played??? Cuddy had 50% of the hits last night. Kubel stuck out when he was put in. Who cares??? The Twins had a great season and just fell short of all who said they would do nothing this whole season. Hats off to the whole twins organization. All they had to do was beat the Royals and couldn't do it. The Twins have a lot of young guys and by next season will probably pick up some extra needed help. Nick Punto brought his average up and played awesome in the field. The young pitching staff did an excellant job all year. Time to look forward to next year and not dwell on wheather Gardy played the right guy or not. Ya Twinkies to an awesome season.

    • I am still waiting for something exciting on the Wild front...nothing yet that is for sure...just hoping the same old guys have some gas left in the tank at the end of the year and the "young kids" have finally graduated and can bring it to another level...it's all about the playoffs...getting in is easy...actually making any sort of run is the is where the rubber meets the road. Cullen making a "family" decision vs a "hockey" decision was lucky for Chuck that is for sure and Cullen is not going to bring us to another level...but will be an OK role player and 3rd or 4th liner..probably will fill the jersey of a young guy we have unfortunately..but it is what it is.
    • Which questions?  The one about your education?   Must have been a long time ago since I don't recall it.  I do remember you being a big big huge fan of Chiropractic.   Perhaps you could refresh my memory, it shouldn't take long to post your CV   And I guess you must have missed physics class as well, since in physics calculations of forces are the same no matter the frame of reference, yet you continue to suggest there is a difference between a frame referenced to a person's center of mass, and one referenced to the earth.   I did see this article from a newspaper.... The author must have at least as much qualification as you do http://healthyliving.azcentral.com/muscles-worked-out-using-treadmill-7727.html What Muscles Are Worked Out When Using a Treadmill? The treadmill is a versatile exercise machine that lets users walk, jog and run on flat or uphill surfaces. In addition to providing an effective cardiovascular workout, treadmills also help strengthen the muscles of the legs and butt. Depending on the incline, you can work the front or the rear of your legs more intensely; however, every treadmill workout strengthens both.   The Quadriceps People who walk and jog on the treadmill with regularity gain endurance and strength in the quadriceps muscles. The quadriceps are named for the four large muscles on the front of the thighs; they are the rectus femoris, vastus lateralis, vastus medialis and vastus intermedius. These muscles help the body jump and squat in addition to walking and running. As a result, treadmill exercise applies to more than just working out; it also improves the ease with which you go about activities of daily living. The Hamstrings Like the quadriceps, "hamstrings" is also a collective name for a muscle group. The hamstrings, comprising the biceps femoris, the semitendinosus and the semimembranosus, lie between the buttocks and the back of the knee on the rear thigh. The muscles of the hamstrings are used for power walking and running in addition to squatting and jumping, and -- in general -- the more you exercise on the treadmill, the greater your hamstrings' endurance gains will become. However, according to the University of Wisconsin, roughly a quarter of collegiate athletes who sprint injure their hamstrings. As a result, warm up on the treadmill slowly, and increase running speeds gradually. The Calves The calf muscles of the rear lower leg, comprising the gastrocnemius and the soleus, also work hard during treadmill exercise. According to a study from the Laboratory of Medical Physics in The Netherlands, most of the work performed by the calf muscles occurs as you push off from your toes while walking, running and jumping. You can increase the workload on your calves -- and your hamstrings -- by increasing the incline on the treadmill. The Glutes The glutes make up the muscles of the rear end and, like the leg muscles, help you walk, jump and run. "Fitness" magazine reports that people who set their treadmills to a steep incline increase the workload on their glutes significantly, which increases strength, improves endurance and burns fat and calories. Although the treadmill helps you gain leg strength, the machine is primarily known for its cardiovascular health benefits. As a result, if you exercise regularly on a treadmill you can expect health gains on the inside of your body as well as the outside.    
    • Talk about humor, the original post was from April 2013.    I'm sure the OP has already bought his treadmill, used it as a clothes hanger and re-sold it on C-r-a-i-g-s-l-i-s-t. 
    • Deer numbers on PUBLIC land in NW WI are very low.  Private land seems to be the opposite.  I hunt a number of public areas in Polk County for the last ~10 years or so.   You have to work pretty hard to shoot a deer there.  MFL land is also heavily hunted, but there are lots of opportunities.   Once you learn an area you might do alright, but it is tough if you are new to the region.   Don't expect to get permission to hunt on any farms, in my experience they are all tied up for friends/family.
    • Thanks for the humor. 
    • Thanks for the humor.
    • boys........boys.......................boys.................do you to need a time out? a group hug??????????
    • I'll just laugh when you fall because you have a terribly inefficient movement pattern created by a treadmill.  I don't need any sort of medical background to know that you move on the ground (earth) as you pull yourself forward and push yourself away while on a tread mill your just moving without purpose.  Your body will learn from repetition and when you increase the intensity, your body will develop those patterns faster.   Thank you for the attempted digs, I have addressed every one of those questions in the past numerous times.  Its not my fault you cant remember Dick      
    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
