Kibbles and Picks 2017 - Week 17

Not going to lie to you folks – it’s not looking good.

I had a pretty solid showing in Week 16, going 11-5 with my picks. Alas, it wasn’t enough to make up any ground on Stella. In fact, thanks to her own 12-4 record, she actually added to her lead. She’s got a solid cushion of five games with just one week of picks left to go.

However … there’s still a chance.

Stella and I are at odds on eight games this week. Fully half the schedule is in play here on the season’s final Sunday. So the possibility of a furious, nigh-historic comeback is still real. Not likely, mind you – even taking six of eight games won’t cut it.

And so, for the final time in the 2017 regular season, here is Kibbles and Picks.

Revisiting 2017’s sporting predictions

We’ve reached the end of another year, and so the time has come to look back on the wealth of sports-related predictions that I’ve made. There are quite a few of them; I’ve been known to expend a fair amount of effort in my flailing attempts to guess what will happen in various sporting events and seasons.

As per usual, the results are decidedly mixed.

You’re more than welcome to judge my ability (or lack thereof) however you see fit. I’m well aware of the dart-throwing-monkey levels of accuracy that I tend to put forth; you won’t be telling me anything I don’t already know.

The year in Celebrity Slam 2017

One of the things that we love to do as every year comes to a close is take a look back on everything that we addressed in this space over the past 12 months. It’s a chance to say good-bye to the wackiness and weirdness of the celebrity sphere in 2017. Some of it good, some of it bad … and a whole lot of it just plain dumb.

Let’s take a minute to look back at just a few of the highlights (or lowlights) from Celebrity Slam 2017.

Kibbles and Picks 2017 - Week 16

For the love of … what’s a guy got to do to make a move?

I went 13-3 – 13-3! – yet only managed to pick up one lousy game thanks to Stella putting up a 12-4 week of her own. We’re down to the wire – just this week and next remain – and Stella’s current lead of four games appears to be close to insurmountable.

It’s particularly tough sledding in Week 16, as there just aren’t that many matchups where Stella and I are at odds. Just five, in fact, and most of those are ones where I made contrary picks because we’ve reached a point where I have to gamble to have any shot at making up ground.
