Happy Friday, everyone!
Welcome to the final day of July – it has been a strange month, but the good news is tomorrow is August, and that means we are technically another day closer to some football, right?
Let’s end the month of July on a good note, so here is today’s Daily Noontime for Friday, July 31, 2020.
As usual, be well, stay safe, and have a great weekend, everyone!

- The National Basketball Association (NBA) resumed its season last night. Here is what happened in case you did not tune in!
