    Your 09/10 Fantasy Team? Boom Or Bust? Vent Or Brag!

    We have a 12 team league...once injuries start piling up, the pickings get real slim. The waiver wire is set up for pick ups last to first. Nobody wants to trade. The last place team has Shaub and Payton, and won't trade either. He has no running backs to speak of. If it was a TE only league, he would be in 1st place. But it is all for fun.

    Bags of Corn Advertised in Hunting Ad

    Another thing to remember, is you can put out food up to 10 days before the season begans. Although that time period ends this week in some of the zones.

    Hair police

    I remember Frank when he used to do North Star games and didn't have any hair. The first time he had the piece on, we laughed our heads off.

    Oh, oh, under .500 for the first time. Went into last nite needing points from Manning, Breaston and Fitzgerald....Hakeem Nicks outscored them for the other team. Those ESPN projections are bogus. Don't play Sproles, LT is back. Drop Clayton (DAL), he is moving out of position. The only guy that worked for me was Benson, and I had to trade Randy Moss to get him...Also got McGahee in the deal.

    Windy...just sell that $65.000 vehicle and buy one of dem $500 ford pigups...they will get you down our gravel roads just fine and you will have enough left over for a good ice shack and a double wide. And you might even have some left over for brewski's and minnows.

    There is no way that anybody could ever try to explain what this thread is about. All a person can do is read and enjoy.

    Ban on natural deer scents/lures?

    What is interesting is that at 2 different deer seminars, they said that the use of doe urine is a waste of money. Any urine on a scrape will have the same effect. It is the ammonia in the urine that brings them in, not anything else.
  14. CHRIS NISKANEN Kelly Holmin, 12, is a seventh-grader in Nicollet, Minn., who loves playing the flute and volleyball and just plowed through the teen-lit "The It Girl" book series. "Definitely not a tomboy,'' her father, Jeff, a taxidermist, said of his eldest daughter. "She's kind of a girly girl who likes to wear makeup already." A girly girl who shoots a Ruger Hawkeye rifle and just became the youngest Minnesotan to shoot a bull moose? Well, that's Kelly Holmin, too. "My dad says that in big-game hunting, it's all downhill from here," Kelly said after bagging her bull moose with a 58-inch antler spread on Oct. 13. "Maybe the next thing I do is put in for an elk license. My dad really wants to go to Africa, and maybe I can go there with him." When a change in state law lowered the moose-hunting age to 10, Jeff Holmin asked Kelly if she was interested in applying for this year's hunt. She and her father take annual grouse-hunting trips to the Gunflint Trail, and Kelly bagged her first wild turkey last spring. She had a newly minted firearms safety certificate, so they decided to apply with her uncle Phil, who lives in St. Paul. Jeff figured his daughter had about a 3 percent chance of getting drawn for the once-in-a-lifetime permit. When the results were mailed to them in June, "she cried when she realized she got a permit. She was that excited," Jeff said. The rest of the summer and early fall was spent preparing for the moose hunt. Kelly . attended a youth deer-hunting camp put on by the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association and spent hours practicing with her rifle, a Ruger designed for a .308 but is necked down to a 7-millimeter shell, giving it less kick. She attended a moose-hunting orientation meeting. Her dad paid $900 for the rifle and scope and $500 for new boots, Gore-Tex jackets and pants and other rain and winter gear. Then they headed to the Gunflint Trail for the Oct. 3 moose opener. Only bulls are legal during the season. You could call it the ultimate father-daughter hunting adventure. They slept in a 30-foot camper miles off the Gunflint Trail, and Jeff cooked and cleaned while coaching his daughter in the finer points of moose hunting. (Jeff bagged his own bull three years ago.) "He's a good cook, a good griller and breakfast maker," Kelly said. "We tried to eat healthy because if I don't eat enough, I get a stomachache. So we had a healthy breakfast every morning. He made eggs and pancakes. We had lots of protein bars, too." "She was a real trouper, getting up at 5 a.m. every morning," Jeff said. "I carried the backpack with snacks and drinks, and she carried the rifle." But the first three days of the hunt were rainy and windy. The Holmins came home after the first weekend without seeing a moose. They returned the following weekend, planning to hunt nine days through the MEA weekend, if necessary. Kelly was scheduled to take three days off from school. Again, from Saturday through Tuesday morning, they saw no moose. It also snowed. Kelly admits she was getting discouraged. It was now seven days into the hunt. "He kept telling me not to give up. On some days, that worked better than others. If it was a brand new day, I might believe him more," Kelly said. Still, they were having the time of their lives. "It's really cool to know someone who knows so much about animals," Kelly said of her father. "He taught me how to call moose, what they look like and where their trails and paths are. We were well prepared." Late Tuesday afternoon, Kelly and Jeff returned to a high, rocky hill overlooking a clearing about 10 miles from their camper. When they peeked down in the small valley, a bull moose was raking his antlers against a pine tree. The problem was Kelly wasn't tall enough to rest her rifle on her two shooting sticks (for support and balance) and see over the tall brush. So father and daughter moved quietly around the hill and Jeff directed her to put her rifle on the sticks again and look through the scope. Kelly said she could just see black dirt. "That was the moose," Jeff said. "People don't realize they are coal black." With one shot, Kelly felled the moose with a 75-yard shot. "That's when dad started jumping up and down saying, 'You got him!' '' "She started crying, she was so happy," Jeff said. When they climbed down the hillside, "she couldn't believe how big he was," Jeff added. Jeff spent the rest of the evening field dressing the 1,100-pound moose, getting about 450 pounds of boneless meat. Was Kelly grossed out? "Not really," she said. "He's a taxidermist, so he kind of cuts things up for a living. I've kind of seen it every day when his shop was next to the house. I'm kind of used to it, but I didn't like seeing the stomach." Lou Cornicelli, big-game coordinator for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, confirmed Kelly is the youngest Minnesotan to successfully kill a moose in the modern era. Kelly is savoring her adventure with her outdoors-expert dad — and her adventure on the Gunflint Trail, "my absolute favorite place in the world." Jeff is building a new taxidermy studio, and Kelly's full-sized mounted moose will be the center attraction. "It was a great experience," he said. "I told her she had to keep at it, and she did. It's a good lesson for life." Chris Niskanen can be reached at [email protected]

    Rip Soupy

    Pie-splattered comedian Soupy Sales dies at 83 Oct. 23, 2009, 7:00 AM EST DETROIT (AP) -- Soupy Sales, the rubber-faced comedian whose anything-for-a-chuckle career was built on 20,000 pies to the face and 5,000 live TV appearances across a half-century of laughs, has died. He was 83. Sales died Thursday night at Calvary Hospice in the Bronx, New York, said his former manager and longtime friend, Dave Usher. Sales had many health problems and entered the hospice last week, Usher said. At the peak of his fame in the 1950s and '60s, Sales was one of the best-known faces in the nation, Usher said. "If President Eisenhower would have walked down the street, no one would have recognized him as much as Soupy," Usher said. At the same time, Sales retained an openness to fans that turned every restaurant meal into an endless autograph-signing session, Usher said. "He was just good to people," said Usher, a former jazz music producer who managed Sales in the 1950s and now owns Detroit-based Marine Pollution Control. Sales began his TV career in Cincinnati and Cleveland, then moved to Detroit, where he drew a large audience on WXYZ-TV. He moved to Los Angeles in 1961. The comic's pie-throwing schtick became his trademark, and celebrities lined up to take one on the chin alongside Sales. During the early 1960s, stars such as Frank Sinatra, Tony Curtis and Shirley MacLaine received their just desserts side-by-side with the comedian on his television show. Search: Soupy Sales View results for: The Soupy Sales Show Sales remembered "I'll probably be remembered for the pies, and that's all right," Sales said in a 1985 interview. Sales was born Milton Supman on Jan. 8, 1926, in Franklinton, North Carolina, where his was the only Jewish family in town. His parents, owners of a dry-goods store, sold sheets to the Ku Klux Klan. The family later moved to Huntington, West Viriginia. His greatest success came in New York with "The Soupy Sales Show" — an ostensible children's show that had little to do with Captain Kangaroo and other kiddie fare. Sales' manic, improvisational style also attracted an older audience that responded to his envelope-pushing antics. Sales, who was typically clad in a black sweater and oversized bow-tie, was once suspended for a week after telling his legion of tiny listeners to empty their mothers' purse and mail him all the pieces of green paper bearing pictures of the presidents. The cast of "Saturday Night Live" later paid homage by asking their audience to send in their joints. His influence was also obvious in the Pee-Wee Herman character created by Paul Reubens. Sales returned from the Navy after World War II and became a $20-a-week reporter at a West Virginia radio station. He jumped to a DJ gig, changed his name to Soupy Heinz and headed for Ohio. His first pie to the face came in 1951, when the newly christened Soupy Sales was hosting a children's show in Cleveland. In Detroit, Sales' show garnered a national reputation as he honed his act — a barrage of sketches, gags and bad puns that played in the Motor City for seven years. After moving to Los Angeles, he eventually became a fill-in host on "The Tonight Show." He moved to New York in 1964 and debuted "The Soupy Sales Show," with co-star puppets White Fang (the meanest dog in the United States) and Black Tooth (the nicest dog in the United States). By the time his Big Apple run ended two years later, Sales had appeared on 5,370 live television programs — the most in the medium's history, he boasted. He had a pair of albums that hit the Billboard Top 10 in 1965; "Do the Mouse" sold 250,000 copies in New York alone. Sales remained a familiar television face, first as a regular from 1968-75 on the game show "What's My Line?" and later appearing on everything from "The Mike Douglas Show" to "The Love Boat." He played himself in the 1998 movie "Holy Man," which starred Eddie Murphy. He joined WNBC-AM as a disc jockey in 1985, a stint best remembered because Sales filled the hours between shock jocks Don Imus and Howard Stern. Sales is survived by his wife, Trudy, and two sons, Hunt and Tony, a pair of musicians who backed David Bowie in the band Tin Machine.
