It wasn't a horribly busy week, as has been the custom so far in November, but looking ahead, it won't be the case in December.
This week due to a scheduling mix-up I missed the Ladyjacks home basketball game, but did cover an oil meeting in Mohall on Wednesday afternoon. It was good to get out of the realm of sports, but not for long.
Friday and Saturday I watched one of the finest prep hockey teams in the country--Shattuck-St. Mary's, from Faribault, Minn., come in and easily dispatch the Lumberjacks.
I also hit up a BHS hockey practice to get the information on their upcoming season.
I am leaving to go home for Thanksgiving today to beat the winter storm that is heading into this area tonight. I will be staying home then, until Saturday afternoon.
I went 10-6 on my NFL picks this week. Have been doing pretty well, but my playoff predictions don't look too great right now. Bye, bye Chilly! I am 86-60 overall this season.
I do have quite a number of hockey pics to share this week. Here you go.
