Panic Station

Often times the world of sports includes panic and chaos, and as the playoffs are soon going to be here, it was that way for many of the Bottineau area teams this week. This is why I chose the song Panic Station off of Muse's new album The 2nd Law to try and describe that.

(Small tangent about The 2nd Law) Muse recently released their newest attempt to push the limits of music and experiment with some previously undealt with things by Muse (80s-ish style, EDM). I felt like the first half of the album was outstanding. After that though, they got a little sappy, a little too experimental and I wasn't nearly as floored.

Anyway, back to sports, I covered many events the past week including both Sioux and Jacks football and Ladyjacks and Stars volleyball.

Upcoming tonight is my final week of Braves football and the last home game of Stars volleyball before the District 11 tournament.

I had the worst week of my entire NFL pick 'em life this past week. I went only 4-10, which dropped me down to seventh place.

I won in both of my fantasy football leagues, and things seem to be turning around (knock on wood).

Many pictures to share this week:
