This past week I was able to see the DCB men's and women's basketball teams win games, and the DCB hockey team earn a sweep as well. The men's basketball team is currently on a six game win streak. They also proclaimed themselves "Mega Bowl" champions (a Semi-Pro reference).
This upcoming week I have another pair of DCB basketball games and a Bottineau-Rugby hockey game to cover.
I went 2-2 in my four fantasy football leagues this past week. I'm officially eliminated from one of my fantasy leagues in 10th place and at 4-8. In the others I'm still in contention. In one I'm in fifth place at 6-6, another I'm in second place at 6-6 and the final one I'm in second at 7-5.
I got seven games right in a crazy week of NFL football, including a no-win tie from the Vikings/Packers. I have 110 right in 12 weeks, as I've cooled off of late.
I have 18 pictures to share this week, so enjoy and follow me on twitter @typhoonater467 if you want to see links to when I put up this blog, as well as follow Bottineau area sports.
