Happy Opening Day, everyone!
Doesn’t it seem strange that we’re starting a new baseball season in late July? Well, that is what happens when you’re living through a pandemic, but we are excited to cheer on our hometown Boston Red Sox.
Let’s kick off a brand new day with the Daily Noontime for Thursday, July 23, 2020 – have a great day, everyone!
Noontime’s Headlines for Thursday, July 23, 2020
- For the Boston Red Sox to be successful and win a lot of games over the next few weeks, Mitch Moreland believes the team needs to take it “one day at a time.”
- On Wednesday, the Red Sox showed their support for the “Black Lives Matter” movement by placing a massive billboard outside Fenway Park so drivers on the Massachusetts Turnpike can see the club’s support.
- Apparently, college football in the spring is not something Southeastern Conference (SEC) Commissioner Greg Sankey thinks is possible. And we agree with his assessment.
- NCAA president Mark Emmert doesn’t seem to like the idea of college football players getting tested, especially during a pandemic. That just seems bizarre, right?
- Former New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady shared his thoughts about how the NFL and NFLPA can work together to provide answers to keeping players safe on Twitter last night.
- Speaking of Twitter, WBZ’s (Boston) Dan Roche excited local sports fans for what the next few days and weeks will look like for our local teams, including both the Boston Bruins and Boston Celtics restarting their respective seasons later this month.
- We conclude today’s Daily Noontime with yesterday’s biggest news item regarding Mookie Betts, who inked his name on a ‘megadeal‘ with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Too bad the Boston Red Sox couldn’t have kept him … (sigh!).
