Kibbles and Picks 2015 – Week 4
Now that is more like it.
Stella and I both had solid weeks – though at 12-4, my week was a little more solid than hers. She looked good early with her picks of the Giants and the Falcons, but I made up the difference and then some. Once Indianapolis eked out their win against the Titans, I was on my way. Houston took down Tampa Bay and we were tied. Then, road wins by the Steelers and the Broncos put me firmly ahead for the week.
Chip shots: FedEx Cup adventure and club fitting both great experiences
Have you ever been to a professional sports event - say, Boston Red Sox or New England Patriots? If you enjoy attending live events and seeing some of the world’s best athletes ply their trade, I have a suggestion for you: go to a PGA tournament.
Over the past two years I’ve gone to the Traveler’s Championship, which takes place each June in Connecticut. It’s a great tournament for a first-time attendee, featuring a very nice layout and lots of fun. This year I upped the ante and, along with my friend Rick, spent a day just south of Boston at the Deutsche Bank Championship, which is part of the FedEx Cup playoffs.
Kibbles and Picks 2015 – Week 3
Well then – that was something else.
Week 2 of the 2015 season might have been the worst combined effort that Stella and I have put forth in the two-plus years of this feature. I barely managed to squeak out a win for the week with a 7-9 record – one better than Stella’s 6-10. This despite our differing on a record nine different games; I thought that we might get some separation, but instead, we basically split it.
