Welcome to Tuesday, everyone!
As usual, I hope this blog post finds everyone doing well, staying safe, and smiling – how do we only have 11 days left of October?
Let’s kickstart the day with a brand new ‘Daily Noontime,’ beginning in “Big D” – that would be Dallas, Texas, to be exact – where Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals walloped the Dallas Cowboys last night by a score of 38-10.
As noted by many, the setback to the Cardinals was considered one of the Cowboys’ worst losses at AT&T Stadium – I am sure my buddy (and owner) Jerry Jones is not a happy man this morning. Jerry is probably not going to be smiling too much this season as the Cowboys – one of my two favorite National Football League (NFL) teams – is decimated by injuries and not playing well under first-year coach Mike McCarthy.
Should the Cowboys consider bringing back Jason Garrett?
Prior to Arizona handing Dallas its fourth loss of the season, football fans were treated to a late afternoon/early evening clash between the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs won the game – no surprise, right? – and quarterback Patrick Mahomes became the fastest quarterback to throw not just 90 touchdowns, but also his 91st score in his 37th contest.
I don’t know about you, but I kind of like having two games on Monday. Maybe we could see this in the future?
Let’s switch to baseball where the 2020 Major League Baseball (MLB) World Series will begin this evening between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays. I am going to be rooting for the Rays despite a member of the Boston Globe thinking that baseball fans should not support the team from Tampa Bay.
Sticking with the Globe, we learned yesterday afternoon and this morning through the Sports Business Journal (SBJ)‘s daily podcast that the Boston Red Sox owners, along with their partners are planning a major ‘redevelopment’ project that would include offices apartments, retail stores, and possibly a hotel.
Finally, let’s end with some local media news where the Hartford Courant announced yesterday that they are closing their printing operations and will “outsource to the Springfield Republican” here in Massachusetts.
The Courant is the oldest newspaper in the country – it began in 1764 – and this move unfortunately will impact 151 employees.
