Anywho, this week started out with me covering the final home games of both the Bottineau volleyball and football teams on Tuesday night. Had some trouble with my flash at the football game, but still managed to grab some good pics from both.
Saturday the Westhope-Newburg-Glenburn Sioux defeated the TGU Titans 20-16 in a game that was both in the Minot paper and on the Minot television. They play Mott-Regent this Sat. still not sure if that is at home or away, if it's in Mott, I probably won't go.
I'm thorougly dissapointed in the Vikings and the refs for blowing the game.
Also I went 6-8 in my NFL picks last week. It was my worst week thus far, I appear to be getting worse every week, which is dissapointing.
Here are some pics from the week (I appologize if some of them are a bit low quality).
