Man – where was this a month ago?

I had the best week of the season – for either of us – putting up a 14-2 record. I went five-for-five in head-to-head picks; Stella went 9-7.

And for all that, my sole reward is the fact that I cut her final margin of victory to nine. Sure, I got beaten in this Godforsaken competition again – for the fourth year in a row and for the fifth time out of six years – but at least it wasn’t by double digits this time.

Stella has once more dominated Kibbles and Picks with an adorable iron paw, illustrating to me the ongoing foolishness of engaging in this exercise. I am forced to admit yet again that my dog is better at picking football games than I am.

Final Standings

Allen’s season record: 154-100-2

Stella’s season record: 163-91-2

Kibbles and Picks – Wild Card Round 2018

Longtime readers of The Maine Edge are likely aware of our ongoing web-based feature Kibbles and Picks, wherein I spend every NFL season attempting to pick more winners than my dog Stella. The 2017 season marked our fifth foray into these waters. Stella had emerged triumphant in three of the four previous years, including the last two.

And now it’s a three-peat.
