It’s Monday – yay!

Yet, what just happened to the weekend? Can we get some more sleep?

Luckily, this won’t be a bad week because we will be celebrating the Fourth of July, beginning Friday, July 3.

Let’s kick-off the week with a brand new ‘Daily Noontime’ – as always, make sure to smile, laugh, and be kind to others!


Noontime’s Headlines for Monday, June 29, 2020

  • News broke around 7 or 8 p.m. (eastern time) last night about the New England Patriots signing quarterback Cam Newton to a one-year deal.

    Newton joins a Patriots team that is transitioning from Tom Brady, who departed the area to quarterback the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    But will the signing of Newton help the Patriots save its ongoing dynasty, which began during the first decade of the new millennium? Let’s hope so!

  • Mike Reiss of ESPN.com believes the Cam Newton signing is “a no-lose situation” for the Patriots, who currently have two quarterbacks on their roster, including Jarrett Stidham, who some believed would be the starting signal-caller this season.
  • So, with Cam Newton joining the Patriots, what does this mean for Jarrett Stidham? Will he be the starter or back-up to the veteran signal-caller? Only time will tell, right?
  • In addition to welcoming Cam Newton to Massachusetts on Sunday evening, the Patriots also made headlines for violating league rules last season for filming the Cincinnati Bengals‘ sidelines when they played the Cleveland Browns.

    As noted on ProFootballTalk.com, the Patriots have been fined $1.1 million dollars and have lost a third-round draft pick.

  • According to Colin Cowherd, who can be heard (and seen) on FS1, there are only four “top college football programs” in the good ole United States of America. Which ones are they?
  • And finally, Brooklyn Nets forward Wilson Chandler announced he will not be headed to Orlando, Florida once his team’s season resumes next month.

    Chandler cited “health concerns” for his decision to not join his team, which has won 30 games this season.

Happy Friday, everyone!

Hope you are ALL having a great day thus far – yes, we know we’re posting a bit later than normal, but we wanted to make sure we provided you with something to read at the end of your lunch break or when you’re bored in the afternoon (and want to go home!).

As usual, have a wonderful rest of your day, smile, laugh, be happy, and have a great weekend!

Happy Friday, everyone – we made it to the end of the work week!

Sure, it is cloudy outside our window, but luckily the snow (and slush) has disappeared. It’s going to be a rainy morning before it gets quite chilly this weekend, but next week should be a bit warmer – something to think about.

Anywho, have a wonderful weekend, everyone, and enjoy time with family and friends!

  • The Boston Bruins will enjoy another off day before hosting the Phoenix Coyotes tomorrow afternoon at the TD Garden. Puck drop is scheduled for 3 p.m.
