The Bottineau football team was much too fast for the Turtle Mountain football team in the battle of the Braves. The Westhope-Newburg-Glenburn Sioux were too much for the Linton-HMB Lions as they clawed their way back to a playoff win.
I will be covering the district volleyball tournament this upcoming week, as well as the Jacks hockey opener and the Sioux's home football game.
In this portion of the blog I'd like to thank all of those who actually take time out of their day to read my blog. To recognize my support I'd like to give a shout out to Tanner Bickford, a Bottineau football player, junior and apparently, reader of what I call "Gottoknowbouttineau." Anyway, thanks for reading.
That brings me to my next topic. I would like to open myself to questions from anyone who actually reads this. I would like to do a "mailbag" of sorts using reader emails. So, if anyone would like to send me a question about anything sports or entertainment I'd be glad to answer. I'm especially versed in television shows and fantasy sports. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can hit me up on twitter @typhoonater467.
I did moderately well in pick 'em this week going 8-5. However, the rest of the league did much better, with one person going a perfect 13-for-13. I'm falling down the standings and could use a couple big weeks to make a comeback. In fantasy I took down my boss to vault into fourth place at 4-3. In my other league I lost yet again, and fell to 1-6. I'm 4-3 in one other league as well.
I only have a few pictures this week, as there weren't too many home sports matches.
