It’s Wednesday – woo!

Hopefully, everyone is having a wonderful week thus far and enjoying the sun this morning – it feels like late-March outside (and early April), which makes me excited for the spring.

As usual, have a wonderful day – don’t stress too much! – and make sure to smile, laugh, and do something fun during your lunch break.


The Boston Sports Scoreboard 

  • The Boston Bruins return to the ice this evening with an 8:30 p.m. puck drop against the Edmonton Oilers. Boston remains the top team in the Eastern Conference with 86 points, but don’t lose sight of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Tampa Bay Lightning.
  • We’re two days away from the start of the second half of the season for the Boston Celtics, who will visit the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday, February 21st.
