Welcome to Wednesday!

We’re two days away from the weekend – we are also two days away from celebrating love (Valentine’s Day), so make sure to pick up some chocolate and flowers for someone special either today or tomorrow.

The sun has officially returned to Boston (and the surrounding neighborhoods), so get outside today and soak in some Vitamin D!

Have a great day, everyone, and remember to smile, laugh, and eat something yummy today!


The Boston Sports Scoreboard

  • The Boston Celtics winning streak was snapped last night as the Houston Rockets topped the Green and White by a score of 116-105. Boston will have a chance to return to the win column tomorrow when they host the Los Angeles Clippers at 8 p.m.

It’s Tuesday – most of us are back to work this morning after a LONG weekend, so hopefully, this provides you with some extra energy to commence a four-day work week!

Today is quite cold in Boston – when do the warmer temperatures arrive? – but the good news is a warm-up is coming in a few days, along with some rain this weekend, which should wipe away the remainder of this past weekend’s snowstorm.

As always, have a great day, smile, be kind, and enjoy time with family and friends (if you can!).


The Boston Sports Scoreboard 

  • Jayson Tatum netted 27 points, while Jaylen Brown and Kemba Walker each recorded 20 points, respectively, as the Boston Celtics rolled the Los Angeles Lakers, 139-107, last night at the TD Garden. The win snapped a three-game losing streak for the Green and White, who return to the court tomorrow (Wednesday, January 22nd) against the Memphis Grizzlies.
  • The Boston Bruins will entertain the Vegas Golden Knights this evening with puck drop scheduled for 7 p.m. The Black and Gold enter the contest with a 28-10-12 record (68) points, which is good for first place in the Eastern Conference (Tampa Bay sits behind Boston in second place, while Florida is in third place).
