Only high school football bowl game in Minnesota is tomorrow!!!

5 posts in this topic

PUMPKIN BOWL tomorrow!! ANOKA vs Park Center

This bowl game has a ton of history, like i said its the only high school bowl game in the state, dates back to 1948. back in the day it was the closest thing to a state championship. Every year that we win it we have it on the float in the parade and older people(50,60,70+) that have won it in the past will ask to stop the float so they can touch it one last time. In short the trophy means a lot to ANOKA

I play for ANOKA...mostly a JV player but got into a few varsity snaps last week. First varsity play i injured a reciever while delivering a nice hit to break up a pass! it was awesome..he got up after about 3 minutes so he was ok.

Lost this game last year to Coon rapids. this year we play a weaker team in Park Center, i should probably get in some again and i will be playing in this game with a lot of pride(im #36, there are 2 #36 as we have over 100 guys haha im a free safety and the other is a corner)...

7:00 Goodrich field Wed October 15

show up if ya can

#36

I played at Coon Rapids back in the stone age. For some reason we always played Anoka at home, at least for the 2 years I played varsity. I always thought it waould have been fun to play in the pumkin bowl. One year we played you guys twice, once in the regular season and again in the playoffs. 3 and 0 against you guys in those days. laugh

Congrats on the win! I hope you got your jersey dirty.

good luck in the playoffs bass master. well we won 44-13, played horrible the first half but got on a roll in the 2nd. well if we beat cambridge (which we should) and coon rapids beats st francis (which they should) we will be playing them in the 2nd round at coon rapids(6-2), we're 5-3 but beat coon rapids earlier in the year at coon rapids so it should be a good game.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
