Don't Look Back

I've now decided to try my best to make a song title the title of my blog, just for fun. This week it's "Don't Look Back" by Boston. I picked this because last week wasn't a week to look back fondly upon for Bottineau Sports.

Tuesday both BHS girl's and boy's basketball squads lost in close matches against rival Rugby.

Thursday the DCB men's team lost in a 90-89 thriller (the women's team won, but still).

The BHS hockey team lost Saturday night to Bismarck Century and fell out of first place.

I covered a lot of these events, and they could make Bottineau fans depressed, but my advice (stolen from Boston) is "Don't Look Back." It is Snow Fest this week and I will be playing a ton of trumpet with the BHS Pep Band, as well as covering several sports.

I don't really care much about the Super Bowl, but I think that Pittsburgh will win 28-17.

Here are my pics for the week:
