Thick as thieves

This week I chose "Thick as Thieves" by Dashboard Confessional because I'm beginning to get thick as thieves with the Bottineau sports world. It is the heart of the winter sports season right now, and I am feeling it's wrath.

This past week I covered an amazing 57-55 thriller in which Bottineau narrowly edged Westhope-Newburg. I also covered both Bottineau and DCB hockey. Bottineau-Rugby's OT win on Saturday over Bismarck was another exciting moment this weekend.

As far as my NFC picks go, I got neither game right last week, which is pretty upsetting. I did get both AFC games right, but was that really much of a challenge? I'm pretty upset that Tebow didn't get farther. Thanks for saving my fantasy season Tim!

Anyway, I'm going to say that it will be a 49ers/Patriots super bowl, but as poorly as I have been this post season, who really knows.

Plenty of pics to share this week:
