Welcome to Wednesday, everyone!
As usual, we hope everyone is doing well, staying safe, and having a wonderful week.
It’s rather chilly this morning in Boston – there is also some snow outside our window, so please don’t get mad if you see tweets or Instagram posts of us enjoying this winter wonderland later today.
In the meantime, let’s kickstart the day with a brand new Daily Noontime – be well, stay safe, and remember … hold the line!
Wednesday’s Headlines (Jan. 27, 2021)
- Former Boston Celtics forward (and yes, center, too) Kevin Garnett is set to host an original content series with Triumph Esports Inc. If you are a gamer or just a fan of Garnett then you know this is something you should not miss!
- It has been one year (and one day) since we lost Kobe Bryant to a helicopter accident, but his business legacy lives on. And that is a good thing!
- For the first time since 1960, no former Major League Baseball (MLB) player was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. However, the leading vote-getter on this year’s ballot – that would be Curt Schilling – has asked to be “removed from the writers’ ballot next year.”
- Zach Triner, who played lacrosse at Sienna College before transferring to Assumption College to compete for the Greyhounds’ football program, recently reflected on his journey from NCAA D-II lacrosse to becoming the long snapper for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Triner is from Marshfield, Massachusetts, and will certainly be ready to help the Buccaneers next month when they compete against the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl.
- Apparently Tony Romo knew this year’s Super Bowl matchup last November when he predicted both the Buccaneers and Chiefs would square-off next month in Tampa, Florida.
And speaking of Tony Romo, who used to quarterback the Dallas Cowboys, make sure to read another great story on the CBS Sports broadcaster from Richard Deitsch of The Athletics.
- Finally, Sunday’s meeting between Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers was a ratings success for Fox Sports.
