Happy Monday, everyone!
We hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and ready for a great week. And by way, it is quite chilly outside – have you stepped out the door this morning?
Enough about the chilly temps – luckily, we live in New England so we should know that it will be a bit warmer later today – so let’s instead switch the subject from weather to sports and kick off the week with a brand new ‘Daily Noontime.’
And let’s begin today’s ‘Daily Noontime’ with … Tom Brady looking like Tom Brady yesterday – well, maybe not the old Tom Brady from 2002-2007? – as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers rolled past the Green Bay Packers by a score of 38-10.
With the win, the Buccaneers improve to 4-2 while the Packers saw their four-game winning streak snapped – ouch!
The Buccaneers did not record a single penalty during yesterday’s matchup – seriously, no flags were throw against Bruce Arians‘ team! – while Ronald Jones rushed for 100 yards (again!).
Next week, the Buccaneers will visit the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday Night Football – that should be a good game, right? – while the Packers will host the Houston Texans.
In addition to the Buccaneers winning on Sunday, the Tennessee Titans looked great against the Houston Texans, Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons snapped a five-game losing streak, and Philip Rivers and the Indianapolis Colts rallied to beat the Cincinnati Bengals.
Also, we saw a really good-looking Pittsburgh Steelers team trounce the Cleveland Browns while our hometown New England Patriots looked awful against the Denver Broncos.
Tonight – well, later today and yes, this evening – we’ll have some more football to watch with the Kansas City Chiefs visiting the Buffalo Bills while the Dallas Cowboys will entertain the Arizona Cardinals.
Let’s switch to baseball where the 2020 World Series is set to begin tomorrow evening between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays.
Both the Dodgers and Rays needed seven games to clinch the pennant. And this is a series we – yes, we! – are interested in watching and following.
Here are some things you need to know about this particular series, courtesy of ESPN.com.
