This week I aptly chose the song Frigid by Offcutts because it has been a really cold week with temperatures at night getting below -20 degrees Fahrenheit and wind chills dipping to 50 below and lower.

This past week I was able to cover a pair of hockey games, both on Tuesday night. They were of Bottineau-Rugby and the Dakota College at Bottineau . On Thursday night I covered an overtime thriller between Bottineau and Westhope-Newburg's boy's basketball teams. Lastly I took in a 17-1 drubbing that Bottineau 19U handed to Mayport. Bottineau's 19U team won all three of their games as they hosted a "jamboree." Last night I also covered the stellar Braves/Magicians hockey game, where Harrison Aide dominated and the Braves won 5-4 (pictures won't be up until next week).

This week I have BHS boy's game on Thursday and a girls game against Dunseith on Friday.

Looking forward to the Super Bowl in two months or whenever it is (too much time in between in my opinion) I am predicting a 24-16 San Francisco victory, but I've been wrong before.

Anyhow many pictures to share from the past week, enjoy:
