Great Weekend for BASEBALL

Yanks in Town

Yanks in Town

What a great weekend for baseball! Who would have thought a few months ago when there was snow on the ground that the Twins would be 7 games over .500 and in the hunt. The Yanks are in town for four games and perfect weather for baseball is on tap. I mean the real summer weather of hot days and warm evenings. For those who have tickets it should be a set of great games for outdoor baseball. The rest of us will have to listen to the games on radios drifting in boats or maybe under a ceiling fan watching the game on TV. BBQ’s will have hot-dogs or burgers or maybe some ribs or steaks cooking and guys will sit around sipping on cold beer and taking in the smoke off the grill. Some guys may be mowing lawns wearing headphones while others may be sitting in a hot car while the wife grocery shops. Kids running through sprinklers and grandpa’s cursing every time a Yank gets a hit. Just thought I might give you a hint what I will be doing this weekend.

10-1 Twins win last night, every time I walked out of earshot of the radio the Twins hit a Homer! I did make a mistake, the first one this month that I will admit to as I said a four games series and it is actually is only three games. Would be nice to take all three, we certainly owe the Yanks more then a few beat downs. Was a nice night for baseball, a few showers that just missed my place and the skeeters must have found some tourist to feast on, hardly any out on my deck. Looking forward to more of the same tonight!

It sure would be nice to have the Yankees number for once, in like decades!  However we.will see, we seem to be struggling to consistently score runs. I will be watching and enjoying that's for sure.  

It sure is nice to still be relevant at the end of July.

New manager. Same yankee curse! When we were up 5-0 and failed to score with runners in scoring position 2 innings in a row, I started to get a bad feeling about the outcome of the game. I hate the yankees! And to add insult to injury, a-roid hit 3 home runs!

Jinx, as soon as the announcers starting talking a Yankee sweep I knew we were in trouble. But still another great night for baseball!   Afternoon game today and a win will make it a nice day for a lot of people trying to beat the heat by staying in the shade with the story being told to their wife's that they HAVE to listen to the game and can't be doing no work today!

Well that wasn't what I was hoping for!

Looked good for the first 14 innings, not so good the last 13.

I guess they still have our number!:mad:

Still it was a great weekend for baseball ! would have been o so much sweeter if the Twins had taken two and three would have made people talking about the summer we swept the Yanks!  Just good to hear some positive comments about summer and baseball..

Got to agree BB. They played the Yankees tough, with a break or 2 they could have won that series.They are a starting to play some good baseball again, if Molitor can just keep making the right moves with the pitching,they may be able to hang in there. Both the starters & the bullpen are struggling now. The young guys( Sano. Rosario, Buxton/Hicks even Duffy)) have been giving them a lift lately.

    • Little late to the answers, but I switched over to NAP KILLZONE and could not be happier.  They are the cats meow.  I like them better than the Rage I was shooting before.  The pictures are from a doe I shot at 13 yards.  Needless to say she didn't go more than 30 yards before she piled up.
    • The whole reason behind getting a new bow is that my 17 year old son is now standing 6'3" and the little bear bow he has is too small for him.  He likes to bow hunt, but with sports and school activities he doesn't get out a ton, so i am going to crank down the poundage on my Elite and he wants to shoot that.  So Dad is in the market for a new bow.  I can't say a bad word about the Elite, its been a great bow for me.  I have always shot a double cam bow and was just looking for opinions about what other folks like.  Not sure if a solo cam will be smoother with the draw or not.  Soon as I have time, I want to get out and shoot some bows and see what I like.
    • Thanks MJ   It's nice for the picture and follow up video you catch a lot that gets missed after the picture.
    • i was just there on the 11th of Aug, yea i was way less then impressed with the cave. wont bother me none, but then again that wasthe first time in 5 years i've been in a cabelas.
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
