The coming of the new year tends to inspire feelings of reflection, of looking back on the year that has passed. And so, as someone who spent part of that year telling you what was going to happen in the world of sports, I feel it my duty to share with you how it ultimately went.

As per usual, the results are … let’s just call them mixed.

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

Kibbles and Picks 2016 Week 4

Slow and steady wins the race. At least, I hope so.

Week 3 wasn't a great one for either Stella or I, but it was ever-so-slightly better for me. I managed a 9-7 record on last week's slate, while she went 8-8; in essence, we simply flip-flopped our Week 2 records, leaving Stella with the same three-game lead she had after the opening week.

Kibbles and Picks 2016 Week 3

All things considered, it could have been worse.

Things looked good for me going into the last few games last week where I promptly finished with three straight losses. I wound up going 8-8 overall; not bad for a week featuring so many surprises.

Kibbles and Picks 2016 - Week 2

To those right-minded folks out there who predicted that Stella's quest for three out of four would start fast and furious (furry-ous?) well done.

Kibbles and Picks 2015 Week 17

Kibbles and Picks 2015 Week 17

Wellhere we are. It's the final week of the season; despite my best efforts last week a decent 9-7 I made up no ground on Stella, who matched that 9-7 record. She is sitting pretty with an eight-game lead going into this last week of games.

Kibbles and Picks 2015 Week 16

Well st. That didn't go how I might have hoped.

Under ordinary circumstances, putting up a 10-6 record would be cause for celebration. However, these circumstances were far from ordinary. Stella somehow managed to go a phenomenal 13-3 for the week, adding another three games to her lead for a total advantage of eight.

Kibbles and Picks 2015 Week 15

We've reached the point in the season where I'm simply trying to avoid getting embarrassed. Seriously I stayed up and watched that Monday night game solely because I needed a Giants win to dodge a crushing beat from Stella.

I got it, which meant that I finished the week at 10-6 a solid effort. Of course, Stella put up a nice and tidy 11-5 and gained another game on me, but it was close to being much worse.

Kibbles and Picks 2015 Week 14

I suppose I should just count myself lucky that it wasn't any worse.

I managed a 9-7 record this week, just one game off the pace set by Stella, who went 10-6 and added another game to her season lead. Still, the wild finish in Green Bay kept it from being a blowout week for Stella.

Kibbles and Picks 2015 Week 13

So things went a little bit better last week, with Stella and I both putting up identical 9-7 records that were perfectly respectable (albeit unspectacular). Considering how the last few weeks have gone, anything that's not sub-.500 is a win.

It does mean that I failed to make up any ground on Stella; she remains in the lead by three games. However, we do differ on seven match-ups here in Week 13. There's a real opportunity for me to make a move here and frankly, if I'm going to make a move, it needs to happen soon.
