Football is officially over with the ex-Cleveland Browns winning their second Super Bowl in franchise history. We may have to wait six months for more football, but baseball is slowly getting ready to start, with players reporting for spring training in Florida and Arizona last week.

I finally finished the awesome Escape from Furnace series by Alexander Gordon Smith (There are five books in the series: Lockdown; Solitary; Death Sentence; Fugitives; and Execution) and these books have become my favorite book to recommend.

Confronted by prison fights, bad food and strange beasts, Alex knows he must find a way to break out. But this is just the beginning, as the life sentence quickly becomes the least of his worries in Furnace Penitentiary…
