So, not as successful as a Braves/Stars fan might hope. Those weren't the only things I covered this past weekend. Saturday I spent a few hours up at Thunder Mountain Speedway snapping photos of the demolition derby and Sunday was the opener for the Dakota College at Bottineau Lumberjacks football team (they lost 14-0). I can only hope the outcomes in Bottineau can only go up from here.
Just as a note, I went 11-5 in my NFL picks this week. I messed up on the Pit/Atl game, the Min/NO game, the Stl/Ari game, the KC/SD game and the SF/Sea game. However, I did pick Houston to upset Indy and Washington to upset Dallas.
Arian Foster was my up-and-comer pick for this years fantasy season. Foster bursted out in week one, setting a Texans single game rushing record with 231 yards and scoring three touchdowns.
Anyways, here are a slew of photos from this past weekend:
