Daily Noontime: Tuesday, February 18th, 2020


By Matt Noonan | @NoontimeNation 

It’s Tuesday, which means we’re slowly approaching the halfway point of another week.

Hopefully, everyone had a wonderful LONG weekend and enjoyed celebrating George Washington‘s birthday.

As for today’s weather, it will be overcast – you can expect some rain, fog, and mild temps for the most part, which means we are inching closer to spring and warmer weather.

Have a wonderful day, and remember to smile, laugh, and drink an extra cup of coffee (like I do!).

The Boston Sports Scoreboard

  • The Boston Bruins will enjoy one more day off before visiting the Edmonton Oilers tomorrow, Wednesday, February 19th for an 8:30 p.m. puck drop. Boston has won its last three outings while Edmonton has won three of its last four contests.
