WHAT's IT SPELL???

SWEEP

Hey Buzz, get out the O'Cedar my man. OK, so it is only a whisk broom (2 game series) but a sweep is a sweep.

Got to love my Pale Hose, just keep SPANKIN' THAT TWINKIE ARSE!

Who's your daddy? EL DUQUE !

In all seriousness buzz, I hope that Brad Radke's neck is ok after the way it spun around 180 degrees to watch Konerko's homer land 410 feet into center field. He's tough, a little Ben-Gay should work wonders.

HEY BACKHERUP....GOT YOUR EARS ON GOOD BUDDY? Hate to say I told you so with Maggs but looks like we made the right decision for now. Hope you turn it around, you owe those Twinkies a little retribution. Later boys, and as usual...

YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD.....YES!

A sweep is a sweep! Congrats to the southside brats! It was sooo frustrating outhitting you guys only to leave so many darn runners on base.

I'm not worried, all we needed was one or two clutch hits either night and it would have been sweep the other way around.... if you would have spanked us like 8-1 both nights I would have felt like the Twins are actually going to have competition in the Central division. Besides now we get Morneau and Silva back and that should make a difference.

P.S. Cuddyer and Punto left 489 guys on base last night! wink.gif

Windy,

What were the Twinks down at the break last year?

How far did the Sox get ahead of them early last year?

That said, if Guillen has really instilled a new attitude there, I believe we are in for a heck of a race. Here is to hoping that when the Big Hurt comes back he comes back with the same old clubhouse poison he and your Sox are known for and they fall apart....again.

Somehow I feel like the Twins outplayed the Sox and still got swept. Nonetheless, Windy, congrats, and enjoy your moment. Letting the Pale Hose have their early season hopes is a rite of spring in Minnesota. As Jacque Jones said after last night's game: "Look around here. Do we look worried?"

I'll have to say congrats too, although I think like Buzz said, a few clutch hits and we would have swept you. Chicago does look like a different team this year and hopefully they can at least make it interesting this year. Unlike past years where it's over about a month before the season ends. tongue.gif

I'm with the last three guys on pretty much all comments. Kudos to the Sox on the sweep. I like the way Guillen approaches things, but I wouldn't make too much of it & am not worried either. We just didn't hit in the clutch the last couple of games, the pitching was good enough to win, the hitting wasn't. We're not a great hitting team & we're primarily a singles hitting team, so we will have games where we don't string enough together to score much, but we'll still win a pile of games with our pitching & defense.

hows that saying go again...dont count your chickens before they hatch...

I not sure I would be TOO confident this EARLY in the season(14 games). Last I looked a season is a 162 games.

But then again it was a sweep at home(2 games!), and you didnt face the best pitcher in the league. I would be more concerned about your closing pitchers, they looked a little shaky in the 9th.

Until then, I will sit back and watch all of the Tori Hunter and Jacque Jones highlights over and over again from last night.

"Hope we can turn it around"??? ahahahahah, I love it...

I think its safe to say that we can put your broom away. The sox did well but not good enough to win those games in my eyes and looks like a few others. Cant wait til we play them later this season.

Hey Guys,

With the exception of Kowalleyski, I got to give you props and say, "Way to Cowboy Up" and take your lumps. True, a two game sweep is less satisfying than a 3 or 4 but you take what you can get. It seemed like last year the Sox would outhit the Twinkies but fall short on the scoring end. It seems like the teams have switched so far this year and our pitching is really good, so far. So I will take the congrats and keep my fingers crossed with each game. We did feast on the kittys tonight. If Backherup is out there, let me say, like Michael said to Sonny, "It's not personal Sonny, it's just business". Nighty nite, fellas. Windy

ESPN has their first power rankings out since the season began. White Sox are at #2 on the list, with the Twins at #5. Detroilet is at #19. Cleveland is sitting at #21 and KC rounds out the AL Central at #27. Dmitri Young sure was right about Cleveland being the Tigers only competition this year!! Too bad the competition in question is for finishing 4th in the AL Central!!

Windy, we're two weeks into the season. I wouldn't brag too much yet. How about we revisit the power rankings at the END of the season, when it really counts. grin.gif

    • A group of us are planning on getting together on Lake Osakis for the day on 8/18/18 for a day of fishing and a midday picnic at the Battle Point Park.  We would enjoy connecting with some fellow anglers from the site to connect and have some fun.  Osakis is a great lake for big gills, slab crappies, nice walleye, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The best walleye bite has been during low light periods.  Sunfish and crappie bite all day.  We plan on taking a break around noon at the Battle Point Park for lunch.  Right now tentatively looking to connect around 8-9 at the access.  Otherwise look for a red and white Warrior and connect with me, "Borch" on the water I'd you'd like.   I might even have a fishing report really fresh fishing report for you. 
    • It was slow for us this year, steelhead on Sunday afternoon, and only a couple nice kings on Monday. But the potential for a big fish is there again this year.   My friend is a little on the small side, always makes nice fish look HUGE.   My early morning fish came in at 23.6 lbs. A pound and a half heavier than the top pic.      
    • Nice work, that looks incredible. And I'm a big fan of the grey motif.   Thanks for the show and write up.
    • Yeah we brought it up to our cabin and sleep in it if there are a bunch of people up there. Thanks!
    • Are you guys using it as a summer camper as well?  Super Product right there!  😎
    • Thanks! It weighed in over what I thought which was disappointing. It was right around 7000 lbs with full propane tanks and some other stuff in it. We actually weighed it just after getting spray foamed and it was already at like 5000 lbs I’m not sure how others that did the same style steel stud house have a finished weight around 5500 lbs.    The cost in materials was above 20K but below 25 still too scared to finish adding the receipts. We really tried to use the best materials we could find and not cut any corners. When I was pricing stuff out before we started my ballpark was 19K but I forgot to add a tv screws wire and little stuff like that.    Yeah it took a lot of time but I enjoyed it for the most part. I’m actually getting kind of bored now and don’t know what to do with all the free time. 
    • Thanks for taking the time to do a write up and post all the pics! That alone is a big undertaking in itself. Nice work.   any idea what finished weight is for the entire house?    And just a ballpark figure are you willing to share what it costs in material to build something like this?   I can’t imagine how many hours of your own labor you got into this build. I think it turned out amazing.
    • Alright here’s the finished product. I think it turned out pretty nice. Still need a stove/ range but working on it.    Underneath the lift bed there are 7 lights and two speakers. There are 4 lights above the lift bed. The 3 middle lights underneath are on one button the outer 4 are on a different button and above are on a separate button.  55” smart tv recessed into to wall. The speakers really kick out some sound in this thing though. The tv sound comes out of the 5 speakers in the house which are all ran through the stereo and an amp.      Hole lights  Single light above the stove area  This door is for the satellite receiver. The black center piece is tinted acrylic so you can still use the remote with the door shut. The hole just below the tv is also so you can use the tv remote.  Battery monitor  Supply and return water temperatures for the in floor heat. I was actually really surprised I got my 20 degree delta t I calculated for.  Lights above lift bed. Lift bed in lowest position. Could go lower but that’s just where we put the lowest at.  Different height if people are sleeping below.  Folding table.  These are the cabinets inside the bathroom wall. These are only about 9” deep but I think they will be deep enough for a little more storage. The converter is in here as well it is just above the wiring panel. And the large center square is a false front so you can access the tv wires. I think we are going to go with the dry flush toilet. I put a little 12 v outlet in there so it can br ran off the house batteries.     The only other thing I did that i don’t know if others have done is I wired the rear porch light to the reverse wire of the trailer plug. So when you put the truck in revers that porch light comes on and lights everything up.    I think that’s everything. Feel free to ask any questions if you have any. And thanks again to lipripper and others for posting their builds the information was a ton of help and sorry if I copied too much of your design. 
    • Next we made the back benches that our couches sit on. These things are very comfortable. The couches are the same ones they use in the firebrand fish houses. Matt from fish n style ordered them for us.     Both fold out to be beds. We also bought a 4” thick piece of foam that can go over the whole thing to make one bed when it’s used for camping.  Under each couch we made drawers. I figured it would be a pain to have to lay on the ground and open some doors to get something. They actually can hold a ton of stuff.  Both rear couches have the drawers.      Next we started working on our cabinets above the wheel wells. The two inside openings have doors and the outer two are soft close drawers.      We then made some countertops. They were actually really easy to make.    For our our upper bunk in the back we wanted it to be a lift bed. We did similar to what lip ripper did without the strut trolly things. We used some plastic that just keeps the bed within the strut. For our unistrut we found some super light aluminum strut that worked great. We are going to make a black cover to go over the foam.   inside the bed looks like this.      We have two motors inside the bed. One motor runs one side and the other runs the other. So basically the motor is in the middle and two cables come off of the wheel going opposite directions. Each cable goes around a pulley so now they are both heading for the wall. Once they get to the edge of the bed there is another pulley that directs the cable up towards the ceiling. On top of the strut we have a bolt that the cable is connected to. Each side does this. And the motors are wired together and are ran by a switch. We have holes drilled at different heights on the strut for pins to go through and the bed then rests on the pins. The motors were kind of pulling the bed up at different speeds so we contacted the motor company and they said thar getting two motors to go exactly the same speed without spending a ton of money is very hard to do. So we are going to try and either find one motor to somehow control all four sides or somehow connect the two motors with a shaft. But it does go up and down just one side ends up being about an inch higher once you get to the top.    Next up finished pictures.
