It’s Friday – let’s go!
We hope you’re ready for the final day of the so-called workweek – what is a workweek for us at a website? – and the upcoming weekend.
If you’re living in the Boston area, expect warmer temperatures this weekend, as well as some rain – maybe spring will arrive earlier than expected?
Have a great day, and as always, remember to smile, laugh, and be kind, everyone!
The Boston Sports Scoreboard
- Thursday was a quiet evening in Boston sports – no one played a game, so we watched some television (and did some reading!).
- The Boston Celtics return to the hardwood this evening as they tip-off against the Orlando Magic at 7 p.m. Boston is currently in fourth place in the Eastern Conference, while Orlando is seventh.
- The Boston Bruins are still enjoying some time off due to the National Hockey League (NHL) All-Star Game this weekend, but Black and Gold fans should tune in Sunday, January 26th to cheer on both coach Bruce Cassidy and winger David Pastrnak as the Atlantic Team faces-off against the Metropolitan squad.
