Patriots Progress Report 2017 - Third Quarter

It seems safe to say that the New England Patriots are currently firing on all cylinders.

The Pats have looked dominant in winning their last four games – a stretch that runs their overall streak to eight straight. Sure, their opponents haven’t been great teams, but wins are wins.

It looks as though New England has things figured out on both sides of the ball. The struggles of the season’s first month are little more than a fading memory at this point – this team looks very much like the squad that had pundits drooling in the preseason.

Will they be able to keep it up against a higher echelon of competition? That remains to be seen. But right now, we’re talking about what has been, rather than what will be.

And what has been is four wins. Another great month.

On to the Progress Report.

One of the most beloved holiday tales of all time is “A Christmas Carol.” The Charles Dickens classic has seen innumerable iterations on screen and stage alike – the story of Ebenezer Scrooge and his journey from miserable miser to generous gentleman is a constant at this time of year.

The year in books – 2017’s recommended reads

It has been yet another marvelous year for the written word, with a wealth of wonderful literary offerings hitting shelves in 2017.

Reviewing books is easily one of the best parts of my job. I’ve been lucky enough to read dozens of books over the course of the past year. While I’ll admit that I tend to seek out works that I know will resonate for me – and hence usually enjoy the books I review – there’s no denying that there are always some that particularly stand out.

What follows are those standouts.

Celebrity Slam - Ball don't lie

One of the few things that is even worse than a spoiled, entitled celebrity with no sense of how to be a non-terrible human is a spoiled, entitled celebrity parent with no sense of how to be a non-terrible human.

Learning to fly – ‘Lady Bird’

We’re going to go ahead and dispense with the formalities on this one. No need to bury the lede – “Lady Bird” is an absolutely exceptional film, one of the funniest, most honest, most genuine coming of age stories we’ve seen on the big screen in years.

Kibbles and Picks 2017 - Week 13

Believe it or not, I actually made some progress last week.

I managed to gain on Stella courtesy of a 12-4 record in Week 12. However, my gain was minimal – just a single game – thanks to her own very strong 11-5 run for the week. As things stand, her lead is at five games as we enter Week 13.

There’s a chance for a big move, though – we’re at odds in seven of this week’s matchups. A strong showing could lead to some major progress for me … or a nigh-insurmountable lead for her.
