Well the train turned out to be a bust, so at least that will be improved this year. However, instead of a fantasy championship, my team is playing in the consolation bracket championship (in both leagues). I had a decent week in pick 'em with 11 correct picks this week.
Last week I covered the narrow defeat of the Bottineau Braves basketball team as well as a sweep by the Dakota College at Bottineau Lumberjack hockey team.
For this week I am off to Westhope to cover a doubleheader between the boy's and girl's teams of Westhope-Newburg and Mohall-Lansford-Sherwood.
I have many pictures from this past week, oh and Merry Christmas to everyone.
