Happy Monday, everyone – hope you are ALL staying warm on this VERY chilly and cold morning here in Boston!
We’ll try to warm things up (and make it feel like Miami this morning, which is currently 70 degrees) with our first ‘Daily Noontime’ on a Monday.
As usual, have a great day, smile, and make sure to be careful while walking and driving today!
The Boston Sports Weekend Recap
- After beating the Pittsburgh Penguins a few days ago, the Boston Bruins lost to them yesterday (Sunday, January 19th) by a score of 4-3.

- The Boston Celtics lost their third-straight contest on Saturday, January 18th to the Phoenix Suns – what the heck is going on with these guys? – but have a chance to stop the skid this evening when they host LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers at 7:30 p.m.
