Why Do I Keep Counting?

This week I chose The Killers' song "Why Do I Keep Counting?" as this very blog is nearing 20,000 page views since it's inception in September of 2010. I want to say thanks for the continued views from many of the readers who like the blog and the pictures.

This past week I covered both 19U and Bottineau-Rugby hockey, as well as Dakota College men's basketball. They all happened in a six hour span, so it made quite a jumble of a day.

This upcoming week I have a Dakota College hockey game tonight, a Bottineau boy's basketball game on Friday and a 19U game on Sunday.

I was finally eliminated from the playoffs in all leagues in fantasy football. I now have to focus on the consolation or "toilet bowl" playoffs. I have byes in each league in them, so at least I get a week off.

I went 10-6 in pick 'em this week, and the winner had 12, so I wasn't too far from the top. I'm still a long way's back overall in 15th place.

Anyway, have a number of photos from the past week:
