Good Monday to everyone, and let’s welcome back the Daily Noontime! After a week off, we’re back and ready to roll. So, without further ado, let’s kick-start the day with some headlines and news.

* The Boston Celtics tallied 53 first half points and never looked back, as the Green and White defeated the Washington Wizards at home on Sunday, 88-76. Avery Bradley paced the Celtics with 23 points, while Paul Pierce tallied 21 points. Boston is now 26-22, and will attempt to earn another “w” on Monday when they travel to Charlotte to tip-off against the Bobcats at 7:00pm.

Marty Turco recorded his first win in a Boston sweater on Sunday, as the Bruins defeated the Anaheim Ducks, 3-2. The win marks a 2-1 record for the Black and Gold, who’ll be returning home from their west coast trip on Tuesday to face-off against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Boston has seven games remaining on their schedule, and certainly each match will be critical for the Black and Gold, especially if they’d like to remain the second seed in the Eastern Conference.

* For the first time in 19 games, Rich Peverley returned to the ice after sustaining a MCL sprain in his right knee a few weeks ago. The forward told the media after the game concluded that he felt good, and was content about being able to play, too.

* Boston College will return to the Frozen Four for the second time in three seasons, as the Eagles defeated Minnesota-Duluth on Sunday at the DCU Center in Worcester, 4-0. Minnesota-Duluth was the defending champions, but apparently BC was too much for them. The Eagles will return to the ice on Thursday, April 5, when they face-off against the University of Minnesota.

* Finally, New England Patriots offensive lineman Matt Light, who according to sources is expected to retire, was recently elected to NFL Players Association executive committee. He told reporters that he’s committed to helping younger players grow in the sport he loves.

Are You Buying Into “Linsanity” These Days?

He never won an Ivy League championship with the Harvard University men’s basketball team or experienced March Madness as an actual player, but currently, former Crimson standout Jeremy Lin has become a NBA sensation over the past week due to his recent success he’s experienced with the New York Knicks.

Lin, who graduated from the Cambridge campus in 2010, has enjoyed a great deal of overnight stardom by helping the Knicks win three of their last four contests without Amare Stoudemire or Carmelo Anthony in the line-up.

Against New Jersey, Utah and Washington, Lin has averaged 25 points, eight assists, as well as 39 minutes.

Also, Lin wowed teammate Tyson Chandler and the Orange and Blue fan base with his first official NBA dunk on Wednesday against the Wizards, which was viewed on YouTube by thousands.

“I didn’t know he could dunk,” said Chandler via the New York Times. “When he’s going in for it, I go: ‘No, Jeremy! Just lay the ball up.’ And all of a sudden he dunks it.”

Lin has certainly changed the atmosphere at Madison Square Garden, and across the NBA world, as well as social media, too. However, Noontime Sports is wondering if his recent three-game performance is a fluke or the real deal? Are you buying into “Linsanity” these days?

If so, post your thoughts or ideas on the comment section below, and let us know if you think Mr. Jeremy Lin is the real deal.

Good Monday morning to everyone, and welcome into yet another tremendous edition of the Daily Noontime! Let’s kick-start the day with some juicy headlines and news, enjoy!

* In case you didn’t know, the New England Patriots are headed to Indianapolis, Indiana on Sunday, February 5 to face the New York “Football” Giants in Super Bowl XLVI. Who’s excited for the rematch?

* Baltimore Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff missed a game-tying field goal, which would have forced overtime in the AFC Championship game on Sunday, but luckily it sailed wide left, and allowed the New England Patriots and their fans to experience euphoria at Gillette Stadium, as well as a 23-20 victory, too. Wide receiver Lee Evans missed what would have been the go-ahead touchdown on the same drive, but cornerback Sterling Moore striped the ball in the end zone, which resulted in an incomplete pass.

* The Boston Bruins registered six goals, five in regulation, and one in the shootout to defeat the Philadelphia Flyers, 6-5. The Black and Gold will return to the ice on Tuesday when they travel to Washington to face the Capitals.

* The Boston Celtics defeated the Washington Wizards on Sunday, 100-94. The Green and White will return to the hardwood on Monday evening when they host the Orlando Magic for a 7:30pm tip-off.
