Welcome to Tuesday, everyone – how is everyone doing?

The sun is shining (currently) but we do have some rain on the way so make sure to get some Vitamin D before the clouds arrive. And make sure to smile, too – smiling is important during unprecedented times.

Let’s have another great day by taking another trip down memory lane with a brand new ‘On This Date in History’ from your friends here at Noontime Sports!


On This Date in History: April 21st, 2020

  • 1995: The Boston Celtics played their final regular-season contest at the original (and old) Boston Garden – sadly, the Green and White lost to the New York Knicks by a score of 99-92.
  • 1996: The Chicago Bulls defeated the Washington Bullets, 103-93, to conclude the 1995-96 regular season with a 72-10 overall record. Chicago would go onto win an NBA championship later that spring against the Seattle SuperSonics.
  • 2001: The Atlanta Falcons selected quarterback Michael Vick with the first pick in the 2001 NFL Draft. The Arizona Cardinals selected guard Leonard Davis with the second pick, while the Cleveland Browns picked defensive tackle Gerard Warren with the third pick.

    Richard Seymour was selected sixth by the New England Patriots before the team snagged Matt Light in the second round.

  • 2018: Oakland A’s pitcher Sean Manaea no-hits the Boston Red Sox while retiring 10 batters in nine innings. Oakland beat Boston, 3-0, thanks to Marcus Semien, who concluded the early season contest with three runs, two hits, and one RBI. Boston’s Chris Sale suffered his first loss of the season – the lefthander recorded 10 strikeouts but did yield three runs on six hits.
