LA have a chance

31 posts in this topic

I am predicting LA vs Phillies. I know out on a limb there, huh? I do have to say the Cubbies have a better chance at coming back from an 0-2 hole than the Brewers do.

WS-

Tampa VS Phillies

Wow, all 3 teams are hurting. By the end of the weekend, all 3 midwest teams may be gone.

I think it might be a LA vs LA World Series.

Me too. The sympathy garbage for the Cubs is (and always has been) so old.

It would be cool to see Joe Torre win it all.

"George is getting upset!!!"

SO true on the Cubs.. The reason the franchise is the way they are is because of the happy-go attitude and the sympathy card.

It's almost like they expect to lose,, becasue they are the Cubs. I really think this is true from management, to the broadcasters to the fans. And I will never buy the idea that this 2008 Cubs has nothing to do with the other 99 years. Physically they don't, that's obvious. But mentally they do,,, they looked like the defintion of "deer in the headlights" after Loney's Grand Slam. you can't tell me that after things go wrong, really wrong,, they start to wonder about olde Billy,

and ONCE that happens-- IT's time for next year.

99 years is a LONG LONG time. Maybe they should combine both teams and go from there. This way only 1 heartbreak and not 2...

Dodgers are worst team in the playoff's by far.

That being said they have just as good a chance as anyone to win it!

My picks TB vs LA Dodgers

If my Brewers don't make it, I wouldn't mind seeing that match up. Tampa has a good young team and they're fun to watch.

No love for the Phils? Looked good the first 2 games, a bit of a bump in the road today, but I have faith.

Year after year-- this is the problem with this team. It will continue for alot longer with guys like Soriano striking out with a ball in China.

I'm not quite that confident. If it ends up the Phils and Dodgers, I'll take the Dodgers though.

Were you not on record as saying the Cubs have a better chance coming back and winning their series then the Sox even tho the Cubs were down 0-2 and going on the road. Do you chase inside straights often! LMAO> grin

I am hoping it is the Phillies year, I was a huge fan of theirs in high school, and the year I graduated (1993) broke my heart. If not, I want to see the Rays do it.

    • 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
    • great job. makes it 5 for 5 for team 5 congrats on a nice tom, 57 and that willl give our team score a boost
    • One More Cast      Photo by:  Roger Abraham   If any of you out there are regular readers of my tales, you have followed my recent struggles with back and knees.  I can’t put a name to this drive I have to be on the stream as of late.  It borders on obsession. I guess in my mind if I am healthy enough to fish the world is right with me and I am not getting old and feeble.      Today I was a witness to that I am not the only one.  Lots of anglers and hunters live to go out into the outdoors. .  It is what drives them.  It makes them feel alive.  It is their passion.  I told my fishing buddy Abe today my thoughts.  I told him how I was feeling a little old.  I guess my 60th birthday coming up next month makes me feel mortal.  Abe laughed and said I was a young buck compared to him.  Abe turns 76 this year.     Abe told me tales about catching big trout in tiny streams in Wisconsin and out west.  The twinkle in his eye when he reminisced I had seen before in many trout anglers.      We fished a stretch for 2 hours.  I sat down and rested often.  Abe kept on fishing. He got hung up in a box elder branch and lost a lure.  Abe told me box elders trees were his nemesis when he fished.   He asked me which tree was my kryptonite.  I told him, "ones with branches."  We both had a chuckle and continued fishing.   I thought to myself this guy is really driven.  I hope I am like him at 76.     We got to the vehicle and Abe wanted to continue fishing.  Abe’s waders sprang a leak earlier and he fell in the water a couple times.  He was quite wet.  He wanted to change in to dry clothes before we continue.  Abe peeled off his wet shirt and there were two things stuck to his chest.  He could tell by my questioning look he needed to tell me what was up.     Abe told me he had been having heart problems lately and he was supposed to be wearing a heart monitor.  He left it in the car because he was afraid of getting the electronics wet.  Here I have been whining about being old and the guy I was fishing with left his heart monitor in his vehicle.      Abe reassured me that he was in no danger and he could continue fishing.  I started brainstorming on a place to fish where it was not so hard walking.  Now that I knew he was not as healthy as he looked I wanted an easy place to fish.  I knew the place and it was upstream 5 miles.     We arrived at the well manicured field.  It looked like a golf green.  I picked the area because the farmer kept sheep and goats on the land and the weeds and brush were gone because of the goats.  We walked and fished.     Abe told tales of the old days and of fish lost and landed.  I walked a little forward to fish and looked back to check up on Abe.  What I saw when I looked back scared me and I immediately asked Abe if he was ok.  Abe was laying flat on the ground face down.  I thought the worst and he could tell by my face.  He told me to calm down.  His back was acting up and he needed to straight it out and that was the best way to do it.   We fished a little bit more and he took a photo of me.  He liked the lighting. He told me it captured the essence of trout fishing.  He did not have a camera.  I let him use mine.  He was not camera savvy and needed an impromptu lesson on how to use it.   We drove to his car and we talked about our love of the outdoors. We shook hands and headed our separate ways and promised to fish again soon.  As I drove home I smiled and thought about how I am going to be when I am 76.  I hope I am like Abe and my eyes still twinkle when I talk of chasing trout and I am still driven to make one more cast.
    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today
