Flashbulb Eyes

Since this blog is centered mostly around my pictures I thought it apt to name this week's blog post "Flashbulb Eyes," a song off the newest Arcade Fire album--Reflektor.

I took pictures from three events this past week: last Tuesday's Newburg-Westhope district win over Sawyer, Dakota College at Bottineau (DCB) volleyball's loss last Wednesday and a DCB hockey loss last Saturday night.

Fall sports are entering their waning hour, while winter sports are awakening from their slumber. It is a dreary time for some as winter is draws nigh, but for me it is an exciting time as I prepare for both the holidays and a lot of busy nights.

Last week I went 2-2 in my fantasy football leagues. I currently sit in fifth (4-4), eighth (3-5), fifth (4-4) and sixth (4-4) in all my leagues. It has been a bit of a slow year for me in fantasy, but I still am ensconced within the playoff race in each league, so you know, I can't really complain.

I correctly picked nine NFL games last week, which was near the bottom in my pick 'em league. I am a shade under an average of 10 with 79 correct for the season in eight weeks.

I would also like to give a S/O to all my readers for making my page views past the 30,000 plateau this week. I have quite a few pictures from this past week, and don't forget you can follow me on twitter @typhoonater467
