This week I chose the Drake song "Connect" because his recently released album "Nothing was the Same" really connected with me. Drake currently has 12 songs in the top 100, which is tied with Lil' Wayne for the record for most at one time.

This past week I covered all three of Bottineau County's volleyball teams, and I will be covering both the Bottineau and Newburg-Westhope teams again this week. I will get a little football in this week on Friday as the Bottineau Braves host Williams County. The forecast predicts rain, but hopefully that doesn't happen.

I had a bad week in fantasy as all four of my teams suffered defeats this week. I'm still the highest scoring team in one league, but am 2-3, which really stinks. I'm 3-2, 2-3, 2-3 and 1-4 in my four leagues.

I got only seven right in NFL pick'em this week, but I'm still doing pretty well with 50 right through five weeks.

I have many pictures of volleyball from the past week to share:
