There is no real reason for this, other than the album came out today.
This past week I covered a pair of Dakota College at Bottineau basketball games before I went home for Thanksgiving, and then covered a Bottineau-Rugby hockey game the moment I got back.
This week I had a BHS basketball game and a Braves hockey game last night. I'm supposed to trek to Westhope tonight, but if the weather doesn't cooperate that may not happen. I also have a pair of DCB basketball games on Wednesday. I will also likely tune in to the webcast of the DCB football team as they play their first bowl game on Saturday in Hutchinson, Kan.
I went a dismal 1-3 in fantasy football this week. I'm currently beginning the "toilet bowl" playoffs in one league that I finished 4-9 in. In another, I also missed the playoffs finishing 6-7 and in sixth place. I'm officially in the playoffs at 8-5 in one league as I won my third straight week. Lastly, I'm 6-7 and still clinging to second place in my fourth final league. I can still make the playoffs in two ways: I win and I'm in, or if I lose and both of the two teams chasing me lose as well. Wish me luck.
As for NFL pick 'em I got 11 right this past week, which is a significant improvement.
I have quite a few pictures for this week. Enjoy and follow on twitter @typhoonater467 for more updates on Bottineau area sports.
