Kudos For Friends' Achievements

As we roar ahead in the new year, some kudos to friends and family:

--- Former co-worker Lisa Mokaba, one of the funniest writers I know, has started a new blog with a couple of others called "That's Why I Dumped You." It's an essential daily does of humor that everyone on the planet can relate to (and yes the title of the site speaks directly to its content). For those of you in Boston, Lisa will be on WFNX on Monday morning during the 7 a.m. hour to talk about her new site.

--- My college roommate Scott Lauber, Red Sox writer for the Boston Herald, has written an amazing profile on new Red Sox outfielder Carl Crawford. Since the Pats are off this weekend, it's necessary reading.

--- And finally, my brother Mark won my company's pick-em NFL pool this year. He's sharing the honor with three others, meaning that all four successfully navigated all 17 weeks of the NFL season without getting knocked out. As someone who has never made it past round five, and was kicked off after week one this year, it's quite an accomplishment.
