And my miraculous run has come to an end.
My picks came crashing down to earth in Week 7; I barely managed to break .500 at 8-6. Stella gained back one game by going 9-5. Frankly, I was lucky that was all she got back – the two games that I won were each decided by a single point (Buffalo over Minnesota 17-16; Detroit over New Orleans 24-23). I was two points away from having my lead cut in half.

Thoughts on the 2014 World Series
One of the things I love about baseball as a sport is the overwhelming sense of history that accompanies the game. More than any other professional sport, baseball is bound to the ghosts of those who came before. We love comparing the greats of yesteryear to the rising stars of tomorrow – even through the inevitable alterations that come through time’s unending march.

Film tells tale of tank warfare in WWII
Most movies can be easily summed up in a single sentence. That’s how these things tend to be pitched. However, there are relatively few that can be summed up in a single sentence that will make me actively want to see said movie.
Palahniuk’s latest satirizes sex, consumer culture
There are few contemporary writers with the knack for subversion and satire that Chuck Palahniuk brings to the table. There’s a transgressive aggression to his work that carries an undeniable impact.
I figured that there was no way I could possibly top the 13-2 record I put up in Week 5. So of course, I promptly do ever-so-slightly better in Week 6 by putting up a 13-1-1 thanks to the Carolina/Cincinnati tie.
I honestly don’t know what’s happening. I’ve apparently been entering some sort of pundit fugue state when making my picks over the past two weeks. 26-3-1? How is that even possible? The only game I missed last week was Dallas/Seattle; hard to fault picking the Seahawks.
