Kibbles and Picks 2014 – Week 9
I added a little bit to my lead this week – though I’m not sure exactly how I managed it.
Luck was certainly on my side; once again, Stella got stung by some last-second heroics that helped her picks snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. The ending of the Detroit/Atlanta game in London was a microcosm – Detroit managed a game-winning field goal after a penalty negated their first (missed) try.
Unpaid volunteers worth millions to Olympic Games
RIO DE JANEIRO — Rio needs 70,000 unpaid volunteers for the 2016 Olympics and Paralympics, and Brazilian Olympic medalist Ricardo Prado is making a pitch with a deadline for signups just three weeks away.

New-look NBA: TV money changing league landscape
For the longest time the cash infusion that the NBA was expected to gain from a renegotiated television contract was nothing more than a whisper, a mythical figure that would generate wild guesses about the total.

Patriots Progress Report 2014 – Second Quarter
What a difference a month makes.
We’re now at the halfway mark of the Patriots season and it would appear that all of the naysaying from the first month might have been…let’s just say misguided.
Kibbles and Picks 2014 – Week 8
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.
