the box score: november 2016

I’ve always loved reading link round ups, so I thought I’d share some of my favorite things I’ve read in the month of November (Hopefully, in the future it will even be posted in the correct month!).  I may even throw in some funny pictures, inspiring Instagrams, and dogs. Always dogs.

smile-dogI have this picture saved on my computer to look at when I’m having a bad day at work. Always. Dogs.

bullet I know the election was at the beginning of the month and all the Facebook posts are starting to die down (thankfully), but I’ve got one more for you. Carly from The College Prepster wrote a really great post about getting involved in our country’s political system.  We don’t all have to be president (or want to be), but we should all be informed.
bullet One of the first shows I binge watched was My So-Called Life. This oral history is a great read.
bullet As the child of a sports and football loving dad, I could relate to this article of a father sharing his love of the San Antonio Spurs with his sons. My dad never got to have a son, so he shared his love of sports with me.
bullet Another oral history, this time about everyone’s favorite childhood game show: Double Dare! How did I not know they originally filmed in Philly?!
bullet No link round up of mine would be complete without a Philadelphia sports story.  ESPN did a great piece on Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz.  It’s not all blitzes and schemes though, the article really focuses on how Wentz won over the locker room as a rookie. (If you’re into front offices, player development and basically the future of existence, check out the piece on SI on another (ex)Philly guy, Sam Hinkie #TrustTheProcess)
bullet  For your dose of cuteness, behold this goat whose owner helps her with anxiety by dressing her in a duck costume.

Did you guys like this post? I’m thinking it will involve into a link roundup with a bit of what I’m loving in the world but, it hasn’t quite got there yet.  Have any suggestions (I’m in the market for a good name for this series)? I’d love to hear them! You can always find me in the comments, or on twitter @third_and_girl.
