If I thought I was busy last year...

Then I clearly didn't realize what covering nine sports can do to a person. I was crazy busy the past week, running all over to cover Bottineau County sports. And Lumberjack hockey hasn't even restarted yet. Whew! I get tired just thinking about it.

Tuesday I began at the DCB women's basketball game, but had to leave early to cover Bottineau boy's basketball, but I left that early to go back to DCB to watch the last half of the men's game.

Wednesday evening was the Courant's Christmas party. It had excellent food, excellent company and was an all around good time.

Thursday I had bowling, the only time I get to go all month due to occupational obligations.

I traveled to Westhope on Friday to cover a girls/boys doubleheader against Stanley. Lastly, on Saturday I took pictures of the Bottineau 19U girls hockey game and then moseyed over to BHS to take a special picture for the girl's basketball coach for his 700th win. Then I also covered their game.

So, after all that one can imagine I had quite a number of stories to write, which I spent Sunday and early Monday morning doing. I still managed to get off in time to play pep band Monday at the girls basketball game. It was strange, yet fun.

I picked two of the four NFL playoff games correctly (I bet anyone can guess which two).
I have lots of pics this week, here they are:
