However, sports change with the seasons, and soon, my coverage will change with them. In about a month, the routine that I just got used to will transition me away from volleyball, football and cross country and will shift over to basketball and hockey.
With six basketball teams and three hockey teams to cover, winter will undoubtedly be more difficult to cover. However, I have help and once I get in the routine, I'll be good to go (until spring).
For now I have some pictures from Ladyjacks volleyball, Bottineau football and Lumberjacks football.
I left the Lumberjacks game early to attend my cousin's wedding in Drake/Anamoose and had a real good time. It's been nice living in my family's home state.
I went 7-7 this week in my NFL picks. I still haven't been below .500 for a week, but 43-33 overall isn't anything to brag about. However, I did pick the Oakland over San Diego upset.
Here are some pictures from the events this past week:
