Random side thought that I had the other day also was, why isn't there a pro sports team that are the Foxes. That would be a great name, and a great logo. Plus, now they'd have their own built-in anthem. This prompted a google search, which pointed me toward two main teams that have the fox moniker: the Springfield Foxes as semi-pro football team, and the Marist CollegeMarist College Red Foxes.
Still wouldn't it be a great name for a pro team? Maybe it will be the first North Dakota pro sports franchise--the Fargo Foxes. I'm all in.
Things went well in two fantasy leagues this week, and not so great in two others. I'm currently sitting in fifth, seventh, eighth and eighth place in my four leagues. It has been a shaky start to say the least, but I truly believe that I can right the ship in all four leagues and sneak into the playoffs.
I went 10-5 in NFL picks this week and have 60 correct through six weeks this season.
I have 21 pictures to share from prep volleyball and Bottineau Braves football, and don't forget to follow me on twitter @typhoonater467.
