Welcome to the first day of July, everyone.

Additionally, welcome to the unofficial start of the second half of 2020 – man, it has been a crazy year, but as usual, we hope everyone is continuing to stay safe, healthy, and happy during this unprecedented time.

Let’s kick off a new month – and yes, the second half of 2020 – with a brand new ‘Daily Noontime.’

Noontime’s Headlines for Wednesday, July 1, 2020 

  • The biggest news of the day revolves around baseball.It was announced – and yes, confirmed – yesterday afternoon around dinner time that there would be no Minor League Baseball season this summer. The announcement was made by Pat O’Conner, who is the president of Minor League Baseball.
  • So, with no Minor League Baseball, what does that mean for the sport, along with the various teams that compete both locally and around the country?Luckily, we have a few answers, including why the decision was made at this time.
  • With yesterday’s news surrounding Minor League Baseball, what does that mean about sports, in general, going forward, especially during a pandemic?All in all, the loss of Minor League Baseball is not good on many fronts, including the various communities that rely on these various teams to help their economy.
  • On somewhat of a brighter note, there will be some baseball taking place this summer. But according to Derek Jeter, who is currently the CEO of the Miami Marlins, the sport itself will “suffer” following recent negotiations between the league and Players Association.Are you excited for a short, abbreviated season, beginning later this month?
  • Finally, let’s share some good news: ESPN will air a documentary tonight at 9 p.m. eastern on the Boston Renegades football team, which won a national championship last summer.We are excited to tune in and learn more about this all women’s football team, which has enjoyed a great deal of success the past two years on the gridiron.

Welcome to Monday, everyone – hope you had a great weekend!

This past weekend ended with a disappointing note with the news of Kobe Bryant‘s passing. We have some links (below) on Kobe, who was a five-time National Basketball Association (NBA) champion, an 18-time All-Star, a 15-time member of the All-NBA team, and the 2008 Most Valuable Player.

Additionally, Bryant was tabbed the NBA Finals MVP in 2009 when the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Orlando Magic and in 2010 when the Purple and Gold outlasted our beloved Boston Celtics.

Switching gears – just for a quick second! – it will be somewhat mild today in Boston, both in and outside the city with temperatures in the high 40s. However, it will be mostly cloudy today, but the warmer weather makes up for it, though!

Have a wonderful day, everyone, and remember to smile and laugh!

The Boston Sports Scoreboard 

  • The Boston Celtics saw their three-game winning streak snapped last night as the New Orleans Pelicans defeated the Green and White by a score of 123-108Kemba Walker led the way with a game-high 35 points, Gordon Hayward netted 23 points and Jaylen Brown chipped in 20 points.
  • Boston is off this evening but will cap their three-game road trip tomorrow with a visit to the Miami Heat, who currently resides in third place in the Eastern Conference with a 31-14 record. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
  • The Boston Bruins will begin the second half of their season on Friday, January 31st when they visit the Winnipeg Jets at 8 p.m.

Happy Wednesday, everyone – hope you’re in a good mood like we are here at Noontime Sports!

Sure, it is a chilly day outside here in Boston, but the good news is a semi heatwave is on the way, which means we are another day closer to spring and no more snow – woo!

In the meantime, let’s get you caught up on some news for the day, as well as what happened last night in Boston sports.

As usual, have a great day, smile, be nice and plan something fun for later or this weekend!

The Boston Sports Scoreboard

  • The Boston Bruins picked-up their 29th win last night by edging the Vegas Golden Knights by a score of 3-2. With the win, the Black and Gold have won two of their last three and three of their last six outings. Boston will be off until next Friday, January 31st due to the National Hockey League (NHL) All-Star Game this upcoming weekend.
  • The Boston Celtics return to the hardwood this evening when they host the Memphis Grizzlies with tip-off scheduled for 7:30 p.m. The Celtics scored an exciting win on Monday, defeating the Los Angeles Lakers which should provide the Green and White with some serious momentum going forward.

Meriweather is no longer a New England Patriot, but instead, a Chicago Bear!

Happy Labor Day! We’re here to kick-off the final day of this awesome three-day weekend, so without further ado, here’s the headlines and news of the day, enjoy! 


* The Chicago Bears made an interesting move on Sunday, as they acquired former New England Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather.

* Once again, the Boston Red Sox lost another series to a division leader, which isn’t a good sign. The Texas Rangers beat up the Sox on Sunday, which leaves some fans wondering, what’s going on with the “nation?”

* Well, the defending San Francisco Giants are in trouble, as yet again, they lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday and now trail them by seven games in the standings.

* Apparently Aaron Rodgers‘ mustache gives him “extra” exposure, yet, why would the Green Bay Packers quarterback need it?

* Derek Jeter recoded 5 RBIs on Sunday, while CC Sabathia picked up his 19th win of the season against the Toronto Blue Jays.

* This past weekend, the NCAA struggled against Mother Nature, who caused quite a stir in South Bend, Indiana during Notre Dame’s home opener.

Daily Noontime – July 29, 2011

Are you ready for some Ochocinco Action?

It’s Friday and yes, we’d like to sing Rebecca Black’s song, but we’ll hold back and just deliver the day’s news, headlines and more! Happy weekend everyone! 


* Thursday was a busy day in the NFL, but also at Gillette Stadium, as the New England Patriots acquired not only Albert Haynesworth, but also, Chad Ochocinco. Yet, some are wondering, what would have happened if Chad had gone to San Francisco?

* Being the usual culprit, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick “danced” around the media in regards to questions about trades and acquisitions, which is typical.

* It’s official, former New York Giants receiver Plaxico Burress has been reinstated by the NFL, but we knew this would happen, right?

* Apparently HBO Sports is in the process of working on a documentary about New York Yankees shortstop, Derek Jeter.

* Well, it seems that a MLB umpire is receiving threats after umpiring a 19-inning game for the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday.

* St. Louis Cardinals manager, Tony La Russa had nothing to say to the media on Thursday about a recent trade, which clearly irritated the father of the player.

Boston at Chicago White Sox (MLB) – 8:10pm eastern
