Fantasy Football Come from behind victory!

Drew Brees exploded and Tom Brady imploded and I came back from a huge deficit to win in fantasy football this week. I was helped by the 2 Maroney touchdowns as well. In the end it wasn't even that close at 109 to 92.

Vikes Bears Recap & FF

Purple Pride! Purple Pride! as old Red liked to say.

That was the kind of game I like, Viking Domination just like last week.

I figure this win pretty much should have wrapped up the Division Championship. Our remaining schedule isn't a cake walk, but the Packers have some tough games too and we own the tie breaker.

I think the next couple of games will tell a lot about the team's prospects for playoff success. At this point I am not holding out much hope of home field advantage throughout the playoffs. I think New Orleans only loses 1 or goes undefeated and I would be shocked if the Vikes went 15-1.

It would be nice if we can get Winfield back for next week against the pass happy Cardinals and AP has to stop his fumbling routine.

MinnesocoldBPboys Fantasy Update: I have 4 players in tonights Monday Night Football game. I am behind by quite a bit right now and my opponent for the week still has Tom Brady and Jeremy Shockey yet to play. Basically it will take a miracle for me to win this week.

5 Year Blogirthday (Last Friday)

Or is it Blogiversery? Anyway I missed noting it on November 20th again this year.

I Googled and apparently Blogiversery is the more commonly used of the two.

Vikes Hawks Recap & Fantasy Football

1st Quarter- Not so good.
2nd Quarter- That's more like it.
3rd Quarter- If you can stop Adrian you can't stop Favre.
4th Quarter- If you can stop Adrian you can't stop Tavaris.

For the most part the D played a good game, maybe it's best of the season. It really looked like the Seahawks Defensive game plan was to stuff Peterson and they did a pretty good job of that for the most part. Too bad for them we have the old gunslinger.

Bring on Chicago, hopefully Philly will rough Da Bears up this week and have them weak for next week.

Minnesocold BPboys Fantasy Football Update: So far it has been a pretty strong week up and down the line up, so I am cruising to victory.

Vikes vs. Seahawks @ the Dome

At this point it isn't must win, but should win. But I think to be a contender you must win, "should win" games.

As for this week for me in Fantasy, it's pretty much anybodies game. I am in a 3 game losing skid and hopefully the bleeding stops this week.

When was the last time I looked at one of my fishing magazines? I now have several of them from the past few months in a pile.

A missive

I actually wrote something at my Bass Pundit Preach blog. The essay is entitled: No Matter Where You Go, There Are You

Acording to the rules the Bass Pundit Minnesocold Bass Bloggers Derby 2009 ended 2 days ago.

Story of the 7lber here.... Of coarse this fish was Derby Big Bass.

This was Jason's Bag

Total= 28.92lbs

2nd Place went to Art Sims Bass Fishing Blog with 5 For 25.27LBS

3rd Place went to Casey's Catch of the Day with 5 For 23.94LBS

Good Job MN Bass Bloggers- I have already decided that next years Derby will be a big bass contest.

Vikings Lions Win Analysis

How does AP get caught from behind? That sucked eggs.

Although the game was kind of ugly, it was a solid win in a game we were expected to win. Would like to see the D getting some interceptions. Jared Allen dropped one and we had several instances of unlucky deflections that just didn't find there way to our D. Once again it's clear that the Vikings are good, but they have lots of room for improvement.

Skoal Vikings!

Yes I did get out!

No fish but I did get to see 2 good shooting stars.

Fished Indian Point on the advise of some muskie guys who came in.

This very well might be the end of my open water season.

Could it be?

Walleye fishing on Mille Lacs...

We have been getting things ready for 2 hours now; It's just getting dark at 5:30PM. It's kind of a sad commentary that Pete has been here for more than a week over the past couple of weeks and it is taking this long to get out of here. I was pretty much ready to go in 1/2 an hour. I wonder what Pete was thinking and doing all day while I was resting?

Update: It's now about 10 after 6PM, I think we are getting close. Pete gave me a dirty job and I ended up getting grease on my orange fleese pull-over.



New ETF: Sometime after the Vikings game tommorrow.

This Just In (to me...)

Although I haven't seen anything official it looks like Berkley has totally discontinued the Frenzy Hardbaits.

Fortunately I have built up significant reserves of Frenzy Poppers. I just wish I had a few more gold ones.

I looked on Ebay and I was a little shocked that there were 0 Frenzy Poppers listed. It wouldn't surprize me much if now that they are out of production, they have been snapped up like candy.

Pete and I

Once again we did not get out last night. Funny, feels like I have been in the boat with Pete for the last couple of hours as we have been looking at things on the internet. (Mostly of his choosing)

Now he is sitting on the floor messing with all the new tackle he bought on clearance at Gander the last few days. He did get some deals. I got there on Veterans Day and the Snagproof Pro Tournament Frogs were all gone.

Bait Monkey:
I did pick up some tubes, beavers, and spinnerbaits.

Thank You to all who have served for the defence of freedom and liberty.

I was wrong.

Turns out that getting trailer lights to work with Pete's Jeep Patriot is kind of complicated. Pete didn't get it trailer ready from the dealer and so he has to get some special equipment for everything to work right.

Now I have no clue when fishing might happen.

Mille Lacs Fishing- What!!!

Pete had the boat ready to go for tonight, but we didn't have a vehicle to tow it to the water.

Tomorrow nights, the night and this time I really mean it.

Good Bye

Bye as in Bye Week for the Minnesota Vikings. While we didn't play a game but the division lead was extended to a full 3 games over the Da Bears and the Cheeseheads who both lost important games. The Bears lost at home and Green Bay lost to a bad team. If the Vikes can win their next 3 games (Lions, Seahawks, Bears), which are all at home, then the division title should be in the bag.

Watching the Packers lose to previously winless Tampa Bay was awesome.

As for my fantasy team, I was up against Kurt Warner the wrong week. He had 5 picks last week and 5 TD's this week. My score was OK, but I got blown out by 43 points with 1 of my wide receivers yet to play.

The top team in the fantasy league is in danger of losing this week, which would be nice.

Yesterday Report

Pete had a headache so he didn't get working on his boat until later in the day and I slept in until it was getting dark. Pete was not super motivated to get out and so we didn't.

90% Plus Chance

The weather should be nice and I don't think there is anything that will deter Pete from getting me out to Mille Lacs Lake tomorrow sometime in the afternoon or evening. Now whether we will fish or not depends somewhat on if the boat motor will start or not. But my guess is that even if the big motor doesn't start, Pete will go to the electric motor.

His english isn't that good, but you can kind of understand what he is saying.

A Victory!!! Favre Takes Two From Packers

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!

Yes, it's a huge win but that D needs to get much better.

Skoal Vikings!!!

It looks like my fantasy team is getting spanked this week, so far my top performing guy has 10 Points, while my opponet has players with 34, 19, 20, and 12. I still have Brees and the New O D yet to play but I'm down 67 points:(.

A feeling

I'm getting the feeling if the Vikings D can't force a turnover, this game will be lost.


How can that Vikes defence go from looking so good, to so bad, so quickly?

No predictions on whether or not we can hang on.

Brian Robison

I like the guy as a player, but that was the most colossally dumb play I've seen in a long time. Hold it with 2 hands and go down, you are on the 40 yard line for goodness sakes.

"A little bit cautious" (Come On!!!)

Troy Aiken grumbled that the Vikes were "a little bit cautious" and didn't really try to score a TD at the end of the 1st half.

Hello!!! Percy Harvin dropped a pass that would have put us 1st and 10 inside the 15 yard line. I have no problem with the next play where they ran Chester, in fact, I thought a running play was called for if the 1st down pass was incomplete. On 3rd down you can't take a sack and the guys were not open so Farve dumped it. 3 points is success and we get the ball to start the half.

If the D can match the first half, GAME OVER!

Vikes vs. The Pack Part 2

Do you think Farve will do the Lambert Leap?

Skoal Vikings!!!

I am a little concerned about my Fantasy Team this week. I am on a 4 game winning streak and currently have the 2nd best record in the league, however I am facing a guy with Adrian Peterson, yes All Day AP not Chicago AP, and Aaron Rogers. If I can get by this week, I'm good.
